I’m working on a plugin that will not update a users
last_posted_at when sending a private message.
Our use case is probably unique, but people have been using it to solve the forum game we run.
We run mafia games using discourse. The mafia/scum faction would use private messages to communicate. When users last posted time did not match up with the last actual post people were finding out who the mafia/scum were. We eventually shipped the mafia chat to chatzy, but that is just annoying and we want to be back in the same forum.

It seems to be working on my development environment, but was just wondering if there is a better way or would this cause problems? I am pretty new to making discourse plugins.
