Message Center content module to My LJ

Message Center content module to My LJ

Short, concise description of the idea
Adding a box to My LJ that lists my latest 5 messages from the message center, akin to Announcements.

Full description of the idea
Currently the Message Center isn't available from anywhere near the My LJ portal, hence it's a hassle to find it, technically eliminating the usefulness of the feature.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Easy access to Message Center
  • Users can see messages immediately
  • Useful extension to the notification system

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • May render the Comments box obsolete

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • Similar implementation to Announcements

Suggestions Q&A

You may have noticed that LiveJournal staff are holding a Questions and Answers session over in the lj_feedback community (and, well, if you didn't notice, you should definitely go check it out). I thought it would be a good idea to do a specific Q&A just for suggestions!

Got a question?

Specifically, I want any questions you have about the community, how the process works, specific suggestions, etc. If you can't fit your question into the box, please feel free to comment! All comments here are screened, and I'll make sure to add them to the list.

Accepting questions until 11:59pm Eastern time, on Monday, October 2nd!

I'm reusing the feedback disclaimers:
Obligatory Disclaimers:
* I'll consider every question I get, but I may not be able to answer them all fully (I can't imagine, but there may be info I can't disclose).
* I also reserve the right to reject any question ("do you enjoy feasting on innocent users' souls?") for whatever reason, but I'll try to avoid doing that.
* I have no way of predicting how many questions I'll get, so there's a possibility that I'll be completely overwhelmed with questions. It may not be possible for me to answer everything. (I'll try my best, though!)
* One of my own: if I can't answer your question myself, I'll bring it up with the staff I work with.

Next week I'll post answers along with some administrative info that needs addressing.
