Collapsable status messages in Chat Windows

Reported by: David Munch Owned by: nobody
Milestone: Adium 1.3 Component: Adium Core
Version: Severity: normal
Keywords: status message collapsed Cc:
Patch Status:


If the chat window has been open for a long period, without any activity, status messages from any users might become accumulated (See screenshot).

I propose that 2 or more status messages should be collapsed in the message view. The reason for this, should be that most of the time the user only has to know the last status message change, ie. is the user available or not. This would remove the need for scrolling, if one is in the midst of a conversation and need to see any messages posted before the accumulated status changes.

See screenshot mockup for an idea on how to do it, and a visual explanation if needed. Don't be too harsh on my "impressive" Photoshop skills. :P

Something should be done about this since many people have requested that they even be removed from the message window. I believe the status box in the contact list is the plan - see the entire 1.4 milestone.

Evan has altered this behaviour for 1.3 so that it now only shows the latest status message in [23086]
