  1. When things are posted in chat in game, there is either an L, T, S, or it says "To IGN" (depends on which chat group you just posted in.

    I don't know if this is a good idea or not; but I think it would be cool if there was a Little Letter indicating which chat Channel you are currently in. The location, I think should be Just to the left of the Chat Line (Yes, I know there isn't any space there currently)

    The reason behind it, which most people have probably experienced, is I tend to forget which Chat channel I am in, Type something up really Fancy, and I message it to just the Local channel.

  6. I think everyone's done that if they use chat much. If you ever see me say '.' in town chat, you'll know I'm in a conversation with at least one person.
  7. I'm pretty sure this would have to be done client side (using mods not plugins) since it alters part of Minecraft it's self. Hopefully I'm wrong though. :)
