He's talking about the "keep this" button on the IM page, like he said.

Where do they go? I pressed "keep this" and it went somewhere, but where I do not know.

refresh and you'll see that it now says, "KEPT".

Way cool. Wow, this is great.

When I tested it, the message didn't go anywhere. It stayed on the list, but the "keep this" link turned into "KEPT".

I refreshed and it didn't come back. Oh well, I had the secret to the universe in my grasp and now it is gone.

Wait a minute here, justin must be still testing this one cause when I first spotted it, I noticed that it definitely said "KEPT" after refreshing my IM inbox.

Now, after you hit "keep this", and then refresh, poof! It's gone, off in dslr land . . . somewhere?

I'm sure they'll return. The good news is that justin is making this happen. Wow, nice!

Perhaps this means the auto-quote IM feature is on the way too justin? tee-hee-hee . . . .

1 recommendation

"Keep this" has the same URL as "Delete this"

Except one has /k/ (keep) and the other /d/ (delete)

Ah, the ones you SEND can be kept, but the ones that you receive get deleted? hmmm

It appears that if you keep IM's you sent, they get marked Kept. I clicked Keep on a couple of IM's I received and they have disappeared!

A work in progress, I suppose.

Good observation! However, the "keep" option for received IM's has the /d/ in both the delete and keep url's.

So the ones that have disappeared have in fact been deleted.

Are the MODs/Justin aware of this BUG ?
This is one that needs fixing quickly !
I just lost a few IMs myself, a surprise it was, but not a pleasant one...

I marked one "Keep" and hit "delete all" for the rest by the same user..
ALL of them (including the "kept" one) disappeared...

So if someone can confirm, is the point of this feature that it says in your inbox and doesn't just fade away when your inbox starts to fill up?

I also noticed that it turns blue when kept. There are still some bugs but still a great improvement!

The point is if you have good IM from someone and you want it or need it for refrence for later, it will stay there.
Do not know for how long!!

TAKE NOTE, THE FEATURE IS NOT WORKING CORRECTLY AND IS DELETING IMs YOU RECEIVED FROM OTHER USERS. IT ONLY KEEPS THE ONES YOU SENT YOURSELF.

I am saying, does it say those words somewhere such as in the IM area?

Well! Almost right. If you keep one received message it keeps them all!

I guess the only way to unkeep an IM is to delete it.

This is a funny evolution of a new feature.

Keep trying!

I just read this this morning...clicked on the message indicator and found my PM's were different colors and some were marked as 'kept' when I hadn't even touch them.

Is there a gremlin in my machine?
