Add new "Automated Message" flag to messages
« on: March 01, 2015, 08:45:44 pm »

It seems more applications are starting to use AM for storing internal data on the blockchain (example: multi-gateway) or as communication mechanism between their back- and front- end component. Such messages are not human-readable and decrease the value of AM as human-to-human medium (since they clutter various UI screens, notification mechanisms, etc)

The idea of "Automated Message" is adding an new flag to AM, so that a well meaning bot can indicate it does not expect the message to be read by a human recipient. Such messages should be hidden by default by the NRS UI (with an option to see them if end-user so desires)

This proposal stems from my experience using SuperNET, https://nxtforum.org/nxtservices-releases/diary-of-a-sceptic/

Alternative Names:
* System Message
* Internal Message
* Binary Message
* Bot Message
* Hidden Message

Seems like a good idea to me.

I second that suggestion.

Surely all you need to do is add a preceding piece of text to any standard AM, then UI can choose not to show those, the UI devs would just need to know what to look for. Eg:
"Hidden: blah blah blah", would not be shown in the UI unless toggle is switched. I suggest it would just be a set one character to save space for the AM ie "~".

This could also work the other way that default UI would not show any messages by default unless a preceding character was included, but think this would be a bit risky.

That would work too. All we need is for the UI devs to step up and say what the convention is.
