In essence, chat should have a
/me <string> command.
How it works:
User pacificfils types
/me goes to get coffee
pacificfils goes to get coffee
This would add a nice, simple, and fun feature to the chat that we already have. @Mateo, I am referring to how IRC does it:
[11:59] <@pacificifls> This is a test [12:00] * pacificifls does a test
So in AskUbuntu Chat, the name and message would all be where just the message is. There would be no icon.
