  • #501 ✎ 475 SquareFingers I'm not sure if I'm just talking about the /me messages. What I mean to say is, I find the avatars to be a very easy visual cue for identifying which parts of chat are chat, and which parts of chat are administration. There's two distinct categories of message that appear of the screen, there's two distinct visual formats; the more they line up, the neater it'd be. Posted

    Ah I see. Hm... I'll see if I can't figure out something nice. I don't think I send avatars... but maybe I do... I'll see.

  • #503 ✎ 234 h267 RNG Hidden Easter Eggs Pokemon Is Awesome! I love Pokemon! Express Yourself Good Page Hidden Achievements Just a random idea: Could there maybe be a button at the bottom of a thread to show new messages when they arrive? Kinda like the button that shows up on the latest activity when something new happens. Posted
  • #504 ✎ 1305 12Me21 Admin Syntax Highlighter Received for creating the code syntax highlighter on SBS Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late. Express Yourself There are actually 3 types of messages: normal messages (display an avatar and user's rank) module messages (the gray messages on the left.) system/warning messages (centered gray/red messages) some module messages are "chat" and others are "administration", and there's not always a clear division /me and /pm are definitely "chat", but something like /coingloat displays "Hey losers, <user> has <number> coin(s).", which is not directly said by a user, it's more of an announcement (but it's still attached to the user that sent it) I don't think there's any internal distinction between them. Also, module messages can be sent while hiding, and I don't think it's a good idea to display the person's avatar when they're not technically in chat. Posted
  • #505 ✎ 475 SquareFingers OK, I'm learning about module messages.

    Do you mean to say, module messages can be sent without the person sitting at a keyboard intentionally interacting with chat, or that sitting at a keyboard intentionally interacting with chat can still be 'not technically in chat'? I don't know the details behind module messages.

    Using /uptonogood will make it look like you've left chat, and you won't be able to post normal messages. However, you can still send module messages with commands like /me.

  • #507 ✎ 475 SquareFingers So, the second of the two. If you were to replace the slightly screwy notion of 'technically in chat' with 'sitting at a keyboard intentionally interacting with chat', then, do things fall into line more sensibly? Posted

    You're not really supposed to interact with chat while hiding, allowing /me and other commands that output things is kind of an oversight.

    That does make more sense, thanks for clearing it up.

    It's more like purposeful relaxation of restrictions. I could check to see if a module message is broadcasting and stop it from being sent if the sender is hiding (it's like one line of code), but that seems terribly restrictive. Like 12me says, most messages are technically "from" a user. This is so that ignoring will ignore ANYTHING a user generates at all, even the "Hey losers" messages. But at the same time, a message like "hey losers, this guy has coins" isn't REALLY from a person from a user-perspective. It's just a general saying.

  • #511 ✎ 475 SquareFingers Okay, we've gotten a bit off-track - stopping mesages wasn't part of my original feature request anyway. It was more about the visual representation of the message (presence/absence of avatar) more closely matching the type of message (for example, dividing messages by 'type' as: ones as a direct result of someone with an avatar choosing specifically to trigger the message, and ones that are not - though, there are other distinctions of 'type' that are possible).

  • #512 ✎ 1305 12Me21 Admin Syntax Highlighter Received for creating the code syntax highlighter on SBS Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late. Express Yourself I'm also not sure how an avatar could fit in a single line message without looking out of place. Posted
  • #513 ✎ 475 SquareFingers
    I'm also not sure how an avatar could fit in a single line message without looking out of place.
    Then don't. For regular single-line chat messages, the avatar isn't made to fit. I was asking for consistency.

  • #514 ✎ 766 Lumage Head Admin While "consistency" is difficult given the purpose of module output If the main issue with this is distinguishing server information and user messages Then perhaps CSS to surround user module messages with parentheses would be useful to you .modulemessage[data-user]::before { content: "(" } .modulemessage[data-user]::after { content: ")" } Posted Edited by Lumage
