After moving to the neowiki, things of course got much MUCH better overall. But I have to admit, the paleowiki had one feature that I miss: Messages of Interest. For those of you unfamiliar with them, they were automated messages left on user talk pages, which you could use to notify someone of a discussion on another page. What does everyone think of implementing something like that here? --DanielDraco 21:04, November 21, 2009 (UTC)

It would be a nice feature to have, but I'm not really sure how to go about doing that. The old system was a pretty ugly hack involving bots; a new system should be a proper extension that doesn't do anything to talk pages. Surgo 21:07, November 21, 2009 (UTC)
It wasn't that ugly a hack, and it's better than nothing. It's at least worth implementing until someone can devise something better. --DanielDraco 00:48, November 22, 2009 (UTC)
Can we not call them Messages of Interest? Can we call 'em like, memos or notices or something? --Ganteka Future 03:33, November 22, 2009 (UTC)
Oooo, I like the idea of calling them "Memo's", it's more direct, and it has a bit more of a clean feel to it. → Rith (talk) 03:50, November 22, 2009 (UTC)
I second (third?) the motion to call them memos, if they are implemented. It sounds much more personal and, as Rith pointed out, has a cleaner feel to it ("message of interest" seriously sounds like something I'd expect from a company email). -- Dracomortis 23:00, November 27, 2009 (UTC)
Am I allowed to vote? If so I fourth the motion to call them memos.--ThirdEmperor 08:29, November 28, 2009 (UTC)
Bump. Any techies have any ideas on how to go about this? --DanielDraco 15:40, January 5, 2010 (UTC)
I hate those things. --22:20, January 5, 2010 (UTC)
Duly noted. Nobody send any memos to TK. --DanielDraco 21:26, January 6, 2010 (UTC)
