    One thing I don't like is that I don't appear to be able easily to see if I have new messages without clicking into my personal information and opening the messages list - we used to have a number that told us on the 'front page' if we had any messages pending. I can see a number - which increases with each new message I or another sends me - but that isn't helpful from one day to the next (unless I recall how many messages were there the day before).

    "Messages" is just your post count not PMs.
    I agree that it would be nice to see a flag of some kind to highlight new PMs/Conversations. Far better than showing likes and points, IMO.

    Yes, it's a case of more info so it must be better...

    I only need to know when I have an unread message in my inbox. I could see that without recourse to mouse or keyboard before...

    Yes, I realised that shortly after posting. As Scintillant says, we used to be able to see if there were new messages without having to work for it!

    It tells anyone looking that you are online right now :cool:

    You can remove the function in your preferences.

    It shows who is on line. You can select not to show your online status though.
