Notification bar/center on site and the ability to get emails on round updates/personal messages/replies in forums:
- At once
- Every hour
- Every day
- Every week (any point in this one?)
What should users be able to be notified about?
- New private messages
- New games
- New games in their language
- New games created by their friends
- When friends join a game
- When there are new messages in a round you are part of (and still alive).
- When your name is mentioned in a round.
Should users be able to not receive messages from mods/admins? How should messages from mods/admins be sent? E-mail or inbox? Probably as an inbox message, and if mail notifications are enabled for inbox then send to mail too. Easy non-intruding setting.
Implement easy method for adding additional notifications.
notify($user, $type, $message);
