I have some free time and would like to complete the Msg::Parse. Before I code, to better understand couple of the communication protocol messages, I would like to discuss them..
PM(private message) & M(message):
How are messages send to offline users:
When PM& M messages are send and the recipient is offline then do we store the message(s) and show them next time the recipient login?
We can do this by adding attribute message_list to the user attribute list.
Who deletes messages:
Once the message(s) are shown do we delete them automatically or the user has the option to delete the message(s). If the user is responsible of deleting the message(s) then we may need, delete message (DM M_ID), in the communication protocol. If the user deletes message then just adding the message_list to the user attribute list may not work.
Which messages are shown?
Do we only show new messages or all the messages?
