I'm working on a particular feature that requires messages to be shown in the context menu when user clicks on it.
Display different icons for different events (Upgrades and errors for now).
User can see the context from the name
Different icons are confusing
Display a Facebook like notification "Center" styled icon with numbers instead of warning / other icons. Something like this:
- Same icon and number of notifications
- You don't get a short explanation of the notification
Which style of context menu would you prefer and why?
