Is it possible to add or enable a function in chat that tells the other party when a message is being typed? The biggest problem with chat (esp PM chat) is that there is no status indicator telling me that someone on the other side is formulating a reply. That results in out-of-phase conversations.

The last time I heard of this feature, it depended on the use of something called "Session Initiation Protocol," or SIP, and the feature is known as "presence." I am not sure if the chat software supports SIP or the "presence" feature, but I can run it by the webmaster.

If I could meet myself as a boy...

At this time our chatroom program does not have this feature. I could see having this feature in p2p would be helpful and I will look into upgrade options once we complete the Board updates this week.
