New site enhancements

Hey there, ckknight here.

I've been slaving over the keyboard for the past few days getting some cool features in that I hope a lot of you will appreciate:

  • Private Messaging
    • Previously, there wasn't any real good way of sending a message to another user on the site, hopefully this will help that out. Please provide constructive feedback if you can.
    • You can PM more than one person at a time. You can also specify people as CC (like in e-mail).
    • This is a proper conversation system rather than a one-off messaging system, so if you message back-and-forth, it's all properly grouped together.
    • Indicator in the top-right showing what you have and have not read.
    • If you receive any spam, report it (button in the bottom-right of the page) and it will be dealt with harshly and as quickly as possible. Banning people is easy and it properly deletes all their content.
  • Signatures on comments
    • You can now specify comments that you post to have a signature. You can set this on your profile
    • By default, you will see one signature per user per page.
    • For those who don't like signatures, you can easily turn these off at Edit settings in your profile
  • Attachments on comments, pages, and themes
    • Previously, attachments were only available on tickets. This has been expanded to allow attachments on themes (if you want to include your own images or logos or whatever), pages, and comments. This has been sorely lacking, as sometimes it's very nice to upload a file or two as part of a conversation.
    • If this is abused, just report the abuser. If widespread abuse occurs, more restrictions may be put in. (But hopefully it won't come to that.)

    @ck, Won't get any arguments from me, just the original description made me smile ;)

    Sanity is overrated

    gendi, proper banning tools are important against the War on Spam. By making it easy for us to get rid of them, then the vast majority of effort lies on their side, leading them to a losing battle.

    No, as of this time the PM systems do not integrate together. We're working on a solution for that.

    Now if that isn't a warning and a half!

    Would be nice if the forum PM system could be used instead, or if the two could at least be integrated somehow. I sent Mikk a forum PM and he replied via a WowAce/CurseForge PM, and I got confused when I wanted to find the original PM that I had sent :)

    Will the new pm system on the frontpage/project page interact with the pmsystem from the forums?
