Better "success" message for when a message has been sent.

Title
Better "success" message for when a message has been sent.

Short, concise description of the idea
Include the username(s) and/or subject in the success message after sending a message from the inbox.

Full description of the idea
After a user sends a message from the inbox using http://www.livejournal.com/inbox/compose.bml , they are shown a generic message that says "Your message has been sent successfully."

A better success message would say "Your message to [list of users] regarding [subject] has been sent successfully." or "Your message to [list of users] has been sent successfully."

An ordered list of benefits
  • Better user experience.
  • Better troubleshooting options when a user reports problems that may just be cache.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Most of the other success messages are generic, so until those are corrected this would look out of place.
