Add a message when buying paid accounts for friends
Short, concise description of the idea
Tha ability to add a short message to be sent to the recipient along with the account upgrade notification email.
Full description of the idea
When you buy a paid account for a friend, you might want to include a short message to send to them when they get notification of their upgrade - similar to sticking a gift tag onto a present.
I am assuming that the email says something along the lines of "You have received a gift of 12 months paid account time from LiveJournal user nik_w" (or "from a LiveJournal user who chose to remain anonymous"). Therefore, you could just add "They also included the following message with this gift:" followed by the message entered into the box.
An ordered list of benefits
Happier paid account recipients
Happier paid account buyers (if they think like me anyway)
There may be people who would consider buying paid accounts for others due to this addition
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
Someone would have to code this (I've not looked at the code for this, but I should be able to do it if necessary)
Takes up more space in the database
Longer account upgrade notification emails
An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
a few new lines of perl
a new column in the database where this information is stored (especially for delayed delivery)
