New types for Conversation and Message #1020
Schema.org currently has EmailMessage for describing a message, but there is no way to model other types of messages or link them together as a conversation.
I propose adding:
We could then move EmailMessage to be a subtype of Message.
Thanks @vholland. Some scoping questions:
My intuition is that these kind of thing are mostly not intended core use of the Message type, whereas maybe ...
... could be in scope.
How much of threaded forum discussions would this be expected to handle? Are we in https://www.phpbb.com/ territory?
The letter itself would me a Message.
In this case no. The page itself is a CreativeWork about the Message.
I think this is an edge case where it depends on the intent of the author, but realistically the markup is going to come from the blogging platform, and I doubt we will see anything finer than BlogPosting from those sites. It is too hard to do algorithmically.
I was thinking Message is more for a small, targeted audience where discussion forums, blogs, etc. are not.
