Hellllooooo Admins!

I'm a relatively new user of Reddit but I have discovered a bit of an annoying aspect that I'd like to request a future enhancement. I love the unread tab in the message area for new updates to the posts I've made, It helps me to navigate to new content that I can read and respond to. My issue: a lot of what now fills my unread page are private messages asking for autographs, can I call someone, could I donate, etc...

I would like the ability to turn off inbox private messages on my account. Mabye with an option to allow messages from moderators.

OR - maybe separate out the tabs so unread replies to posts are on one page and unread private messages appear on a separate tab that I can choose to ignore.

I thank you for your time.

My best, Bill

Could I ask that you send a message over to whomever runs SRS? I would like the banner removed. I do not feel it's appropriate and I am not a member there. Thanks. MBB

They removed it as soon as they were aware of the request, actually.

Untill 50min ago I didn't know what Star Treck is not related to Star Wars(Iranian here), and "just" find out who you are throught reddit. Men that stand up for women aren't rare in Iran(far from it). Thing seems to be pretty rare in America(judging from what I have seen of American culture in reddit), So forgive them (r/SRS) for being too excited over you.

From the looks of that subreddit's "Dos and don'ts" (tastefully referred to as "dildos and dildon'ts) and their FAQs, it might be a waste of breath to ask them. I'll send them a message anyway, but I don't expect much to come from it.

Edit: Sent a kind request to remove said banner to one of the moderators.
