Just read the new ideas. https://www.railpage.com.au/ideas/general/instant-messaging-popout-for-r is a great idea.  I would add the following.

This is a good idea but not sure now hard it would be to implement.  Do you envisage this being a one to one or one to many service?

This makes me think of a general popup notification piece which I will place into the ideas section.

I honestly think that PMs are probably good enough for this kind of thing. If we really need group discussions then we can either use the forums or maybe some kind of group PM feature.

A group PM feature is something I had not considered for my Idea.  Are you thinking of a CC field on the PM?

The ability to follow a user and then be able to instant message is a good idea i still think.  sometimes you really want to just have a quick conversation.  The other way to do it is to have PM's pop up with the ability to reply in the java script?

I have suggested another idea where a notifications stream is part of a pop-up scenario.

Not a CC field, but rather the ability to send a PM to multiple users.

I liked that idea.

Glad you share my view on the notifications stream. It is crazy what we could do with that. Building a notifications function can be linked to email also and to eventually a mobile app as the interface to the notifications system for iOS is easy.  

Railpage could start with a simple Railpage APP with notifications for certain types of data.  Start basic.

endless ideas.

I like this too!  The idea of "alerts" to your desktop is fab.  How would it work on a tablet?

Have the instant message idea expanded to be a pop out which also has private messages access ?

Or, and here's a novel idea, we just use the existing PM system.
