Universal name for the "Message Inbox"

M maliktunga Public Seen by 83

I filed the issue on GitHub : The "Message(s) [and/or] Inbox / conversations" is too loosely denominated

What should be the one name of this messaging page?

"Message Inbox", tells the HTML title.
"conversations", tells the URL.
"Messages", tells the button's link title.
"Inbox", tells the page itself.

I'm fine with conversation.

'Conversations'. Although I'm happy for the heading on the page itself to read 'Inbox', which is what it is displaying down the left-hand column.

I agree. conversation/conversations sounds good. Inbox could stay as a good title for the list of conversations.

I think as well that it should be universally referred as Conversations (plural).

However, I wouldn't mind if we'd read "Inbox" on the page itself, as long as the HTML head title would display Conversations.

Since we're all agreeing with Conversations, I think we're ready for a proposal!

We could also rename the Inbox "Conversations", but I'm fine with the current proposal.

keeping things as straight forward and simple for end users will drive up adoption. If your grandmother can use it, we are on the right track :)

Do you think it really is important to make the close date so distant? A whole week is quite long... and so far it seems pretty unanimous.

Yes.

Alright then!

OK, pretty much unanimous. Before I make a PR (unless someone else wants to do it), should the labels be changed (e.g. 'message_inbox_badge' to 'conversations_badge') or just the text itself?

@goob Just released the outcome.

Yes, that would be more intuitive especially for future developers.
