compress conversations/threads like in mailbox
I would like to be able to compress the conversations/threads like I can in my mailbox. It would serve users a better overview. I think they are to big on the screen now compared to conversations in the mailbox.
The conversations UI should be changed to look/function more like an online forum/board: Instead of all the conversations appearing as though they're part of a single, continuous chat... Display a list of conversations, each of which can be "opened" or expanded.
Also, the "Start new conversation" text box needs to be moved to the top. As it stands, its bottom placement reinforces the bad practice of treating the channel as a single conversation.
Perhaps this should be offered as a option for the UI's presentation.
