So we finally have an in-game chat system, and though it has many many issues, we know how it works and it is wonderful! So now let's talk about an in-game MESSAGING system.

ACCESS LOCATION:
In-Game, have a permanent button next to Global Chat
Website, Account -> Messages

CONSTANT FEATURES:
Inbox, drafts, sent, and important.
Quotes possible inside the messages
*Important would be for things you know you will want to keep, whereas if you're unsure or don't care, just leave it in sent. The Important folder could also have a bunch of extra features, maybe, such as being able to organize the messages in any order (rather than filtering different ways), different displays, etc

EARNED FEATURES:
Be able to change the color of specific messages from other accounts (including the Bot)

BOT:
There needs to be a bot account. It will automatically send tournament updates, contest details, and trade notifications (such as my suggestion in the trade thread "Have a notification when you receive a card in a pack or sealed game, that you are requesting in an open trade")
Messages from the Bot will be in a specific color, even before players gain the ability to change the colors

NECESSITIES:
If it's possible (I'm not 100% sure it is) the in-game messaging system NEEDS to be linked with the online PM's

It needs working scrollbar and custom groups ( not only global chat ). I dont think anything else is important now. I would focus on other things.

scroll bars, deffinately

What do you mean by custom groups?

Yes i know this isn't of huge importance, but it will need to be implemented sooner or later, and it's always good to help get an idea rolling. Less work/stress for the devs when the time comes

Just look at current IM software and do it the same way. or buy the code :P
The current system kinda serves its purpose but if you look at what could be possible, it's much inferior.

There needs to be both a chat system AND a messaging system. They should not be the same thing.

Also, an extra suggestion: EARNED FEATURE: Allow players to automatically delete automated messages from the bot (so you can avoid Tournament Notifications, for example)
