Comment (by lakrisgubben):


 I've been tinkering a bit with this and some thoughts have come up that
 I'd love to get some feedback on (@boone @hnla).

 1. At first I though about moving the "select (read/unread/all)"-box to
 the <th> instead of having a checkbox as on the notifications screen. But
 this doesn't really feel right. But having both a checkbox for selecting
 all (in the <th>) as well as the select-box seems like overkill. To be
 honest I almost feel like the select-box seems like overkill in itself. I
 mean you've got a screen with 10 messages on it, do you really need a way
 to toggle only the read/unread? (Might be out of line here, I don't know,
 just floating the idea). Especially if we add another select-box to deal
 with the choice of deleting/mark read/mark unread of the selected
 messages, it feels like it's going to get cluttered.

 2. Why do we only show the unread count for the messages? Wouldn't it be
 nice to show the total number of messages in the thread (like in gmail or
 some other mail-app)? The fact that the thread contains unread messages is
 quite clear anyways, different background, red background for the count,
 bold text.

 3. Which brings me on to the bold text on unread messages. I think it gets
 unnecessary hard to read and stands out in an annoying way that all of the
 text on unread messages are bold. Any reason for making all of it bold?

 4. I think we should have a "mark read/mark unread" link along with the
 delete link next to each thread, just as we have with notifications.
 Anyone opposed to this?
