I believe that PM are pretty important and shouldn't get ignored.

They should be popping up or the first thing you check when you visit the forum, especially if they are new.

IMHO, the small [number] of new messages is enough for me. Last thing that I want is pop-ups in my face.

It works for us, but PM messages are not as noticable as the rest of the forum. They should be noticable and big so that people actually...reply to my PM.

I knew bitquuix is on here everyday(At least yesterday), but he's not replying to my PM about open sourcing it.

well in my opionion you can't overlook these messages.
if someone is not replying, I guess he doesn't want to reply.

Well, it is a bit small. If you don't know about PM in general. You might not notice. Different colour might be a lot more visible (like in red or so).

If not a pop, but at least a big rectangle red box that notify the user that they have PM.

If you click "Profile | Personal Message Options" there's a checkbox you can select that says "Show a popup when you receive new messages?". It works well.

That should be standard. Some forum members are ignoring PMs. One of my PM was pretty importantA(concerns about security), but I got no reply. However, I do know that guy is active on the forum.

Another, well you know the recent explosive anger displayed by me.

It's also really weird and odd looking.

I had 5 messages and never realised until just now. It's not very obvious. It's be nice to have a plain blue banner at the top like you get on Wikipedia with new messages, not some obnoxious flashing red text though.

It does, in a way. You could set an alert with other forum softwares.

You can already set it up with SMF. However, SMF does not have sensible defaults.
