Ok... about that 'Conversations' thing.

What is the difference between 'PMs' and 'Conversations'?

I have read that elsewhere and I'm not totally convinced that adding 'Conversations' is necessary for MyBB. 

Alerts, on the other hand, should become part of the MyBB core. 
So many Admins request this feature. This can be coded to be toggled On or Off depending on Admin preference.
Why wait until 1.10.xx for this? I don't see the logic of putting that feature on hold.
Why not add the Alerts to the MyBB core during the 1.9.xx series?

Conversations is more real-time in a sense and allows for multiple participants to converse. I'd say this is definitely necessary if we want to keep up with today's standards and compete against social media sites.

The team's made some great progress with 1.9 as of late. We're (or most) all agreed that 1.9 needs to come out and it needs to come out quick mainly due to the responsive theme, so why would we delay this even more by adding another main feature to the 1.9 map? Adding alerts to 1.9 would probably set us back months.

I'm not talking about adding Alerts function into the MyBB core with the first release of 1.9.xx, I'm talking about adding the Alerts DURING the 1.9.xx series. 
(I'm predicting that the 1.9.xx series, with all of the incremental upgrades, will probably take up around 2-3 years before 1.10.xx gets released)

It can be done anytime after the first release. In the interim, the Alerts can be worked on and tweaked during the beta testing. 

If that takes months, then so be it, but you still haven't stated why this couldn't be added onto the 1.9.xx release except it would "take months" to do add this feature that many Admins have requested.
