Was wondering if a message form widget in the sidebar of an item would help users get in touch with authors more quickly. I always reply to comments/issues by suggesting users to drop me a message via the contact form in the profile – maybe a form in the item details will be more appropriate and will speed things up:
Maybe the Send it only to author checkbox could be placed in the existent comments section to not have usability issues (because of the duplicity). Private things like a preview URL or temporary WordPress access for debugging purposes could be sent this way more easily.
Let me know what you guys are thinking – this may have pros and cons, but I think it’s worth a discussion.
Excellent suggestion! I like it! +1
Sounds like a solid idea +1!
