Short, concise description of the idea
Please make the link to the Messages screen available in the upper left menu at all times, not just from the Home Page.
Full description of the idea
I always want to know when there are messages for me to respond to, but I have to in some way navigate away from my Friends Page (or whatever page I'm viewing) to check them today. I either have to go to my email inbox (away from LJ entirely) or click the Home link (conveniently available at all times in the upper left corner of the screen next to my icon). It would be great if I could have a link to the Messages screen / box from the upper left corner (like where the Home link is) from all screens.
- Convenience of instantly knowing when messages arrive.
- Never having to navigate away from LJ pages to check for messages.
- More user-friendly navigation (IMHO).
- I honestly can't think of any, unless you have a space limitation in that corner of the screen and have to choose to move another link from that area.
