  1. Hello everyone!

    You probably all know the following feature: in chat, you can start a conversation by clicking on someone's name. Although this is an awesome feature for most people, for some it can be quite annoying. I have 4 monitors (currently reworking my setup), so I often have the forums opened on one of them, and my Minecraft accounts on all (or some of) the others. This means I'll often be going from one monitor to another. I of course do this by moving my mouse to it, and then clicking (to get that program in focus). Here the problem appears, when I do this, I often click on a username, resulting in me starting a conversation with them! This of course is quite annoying.

    So, my suggestion is, make us able to turn this feature of starting a conversation with someone when clicking on thrir natheir and off. :)

    Thanks for your time. :)

  2. I'm actually a fan of this suggestion for the simple reason that I'm always accidentally clicking someone's name in chat.

  3. I guess this would be a good improvement to some people's chats... Although I wouldn't turn it off, but there's always someone who needs this kind of feature.

  4. I think this setting would need to be hidden or in a subcategory, so /ps doesn't get too crowded.

  5. Agreed.
  6. Any more opinions?
  7. +1 I'm also always switching back and forth between the forums and game. Besides.....can't we just do /tell or /msg? :p

  8. I like this mainly because I often accidentally click someone's name and then say something in chat. Then I have to explain to them that I had clicked there name that the message was meant for chat.

  10. I see no real problems with adding this, as it is completely optional. Just depends on whether the developers can include something like this into their busy schedule. I've never really had this problem being as I only use a single screen but I see where the annoyance would come from your point of view, so +1 from me! :)
