Private Conversations
#1
MyBB has long had the ability to send other members Private Messages, which are hidden from public view. This system has become rather restrictive in recent times though, with the PM system only showing the last message and allowing only two participants. We therefore decided for MyBB 2.0 to overhaul this system to act as a much more powerful Conversation based system.

This new system allows for multiple participants within a conversation, and a fully threaded approach to messages. This allows for much greater communications between users in private outside of the usual forums.

As can be seen in the above screenshot, conversations can have multiple participants. Note that the participant list is likely to have its layout changed (as can also be seen in the screenshot) to make it more useable.

Will there be the ability for Admins/Mods to be able to view these - or at least a report feature on conversations in case of a violation of forum rules etc?

admins/mods should not be able to view private conversations of other users, IMHO. it really breaks the trust users have in the mod team.

What about adding a feature where someone can report a conversation and that allows admins/mods (configurable via permissions) to see the content of just the reported conversation?

would it error out if an admin/mod tried to view a private conversation that wasn't referred in a report?

Absolutely. The point would be that only admins and mods (or whoever had permission) could view conversations and only those conversations that had been reported by a user.

that'd probably suffice while keeping the conversations private most of the time.
