Ideas for inbox dropdown
Ok so I really wanted to jam on some ideas to fix notifications - removing normal thread activity into what I'm kinda into calling "inbox" (after being dissatisfied with "unread discussions")
In this concept we keep everything the same except we add a new dropdown next to notifications called inbox.
It is a easy way to find unread threads. The advantage is all the 'commented in' and 'started a new discussion' notifications in the notifications dropdown would disappear. Leaving just likes, mentions, proposal events?, and membership events in the notifications.
Whaddya think? I'm most into the bottom right design. The top left might be a page.. This is essentially the "Daily Activity Summary" with dropdown (or mobile friendly) formatting and only unread content.
