If you use the default settings for chat, you will miss a lot as it just scrolls past you. Here's how I deal with it, YMMV.

About a quarter of my screen is chat windows.



In the upper window is Kinchat and the coursera channel. Below that is /say and /emote. Everything else is in the lower window. If /emote is very busy, I may turn it off - also I always leave the World channel as it hurts my eyes.

Go here to see how to create new chat tabs, rename tabs and use filters to decide what goes in which tab.

Drag a tab out of the chat window to create a new window.

It's also possible to add timestamps, but these will be prepended to each chat item and create more clutter.

This really belongs in this thread, but I am not allowed to post there.

Great post!

Everyone will have to adjust their chat window settings in the way that works best for them. In my case, I only keep one chat window only in the default space:

  • I removed the combat tab because I find I don't use it (and if I need the information, it's always in the General tab). It became my "RP" tab which is filtered to include /say and /emotes.
  • The next tab is my Cousera/kinship tab, which I filter to include Coursera's userchat, the kinship chat, and fellowship chat.
  • The next tab is for my other userchats.
  • Final tab is IMs.
