[request] Different color for gallery notification PM

Background: Daily I get between 5 and 15 PMs from the system telling me about gallery additions of members I have subscribed to. Often times, I check them all out at once later int he day, and I have a blinking red envelope on my screen for long periods of time. There have been a few times now where I have missed more important system PMs due to seeing the red envelope and not being able to differentiate between a regular system message and a notification from the envelope.

Suggestion: If possible in the system, can we make gallery notification PMs flashers a different color like blue or green?

Re: Different color for gallery notification PM

Or even allowing users to assign a color on their own for what type of PM. One thing also that may be something to look into, is creating groups for different catagories of PM's, such as user, System, Gallery.

Alternatively, or additionally, how about separating gallery notifications from system messages, so that at the top of the page the "buddy line" would say:

quote:
system(2) · gallery(7) · User A · User B(2) online: User C
 

That way not only would people know that there are both system messages and gallery notifications available, they could click on the word "gallery" or "system" and access just those messages.

I added a gallery user that owns notification messages.
