Issue #7843 wontfix

Put labels in inbox like: unread/direct/issues/forks/etc

At the moment the inbox is very cluttered and it's hard to find all my unread messages for example.. or just the direct messages because they are more important than all the forks.

Not sure how far you want to attack it, but it's important to be able to get all the unread messages or all the direct messages as well.

    While I agree that the Inbox system needs work (your suggestion being a good one), the truth is that at the moment our priorities are with different sections of the site and we won't be working on it soon.

    At least sort them by the last received message in the thread...!! I understand that you have other things to do as well.. but marking this as wontfix when admitting that it needs works is kind of weird...!! Some changes are not hard to implement and could make a huge difference..

    To add labels properly, you'd expect to be able to filter on them, maybe sort, apply actions to them in bulk ("mark as unread all issue messages") and that seems like a fair chunk of work.

    I closed it in an attempt to be upfront about our priorities. We typically address issues based on user votes and how well issues align with our long term strategy.

    I'm happy to reopen the issue, but that alone won't change the likelihood of it getting prioritized.

    Now that you raised this public issue, others can find it and comment, express their interest and vote for it.

    Messages inside a thread are ordered on date, ascending (old message on top). Are you saying this is broken, or are you suggesting we reverse the ordering?

    Missed that one.. due to a broken messaging system I guess :)

    Inside the thread is correct.. but when there is a new message arrived in an older thread.. the whole thread should go on top of the list in the inbox! Like Gmail does it..
