A highlight/erase chat tool

Postby ViperOverLord on Thu May 09, 2013 5:17 pm

I think it'd be good if there was a tool whereby a player could highlight important chat or erase unwanted chat.

Interesting idea. It doesn't strike me as impossible, but I still don't have the scripting skills to start on this.

Thanks. Keep it in mind. I think it'd be really useful.

A few thoughts for anyone (including me) who might pursue this:
  • like non-chat snapshots, the information is associated with a particular game and needs to be removable, probably on the same scales (this game, finished games, all games)
  • toggling the hidden chat would likely be useful, but can the user tell if there is anything to toggle?
  • what is the user interface: extra buttons on chat lines, a popup menu, ... ?

Just realizing that this should probably be moved to T&E Suggestions.
