No problem. Is this going to replace the whole PM system or not because it'd be weird to have both together would it not? Happy I hope things I mentioned are considered.

Yeah, the idea is to replace PMs. It'll be more integrated into the User CP too with the left sidebar and links in said sidebar.

Oh good, once it is in a released and pentested stage. I'll install it and TRY and design it into a more IM looking way like chat bubbles or something haha.

Yeah, design really isn't my strong point at all.

What will happen to existing PMs? Will they be 'converted' to conversations or deleted?

I don't think it will completely replace the PM system, since that would possibly cause issues with MyBB updates.

That isn't fully decided. I'm going to look into whether it will be easy to "convert" existing PMs, but it'll likely ship as an extra script rather than being part of the core system. Converting could be a long process for boards with many users that can have many PMs stored.

We love the idea of conversations. Are you supposed to go to conversations.php?

Yeah, that is the correct page, but the system is not yet complete. Looks like you're using the old mysql database class rather than the current mysqli. Currently the system expects mysqli, but I'll change that.
