    I've added this to 2.8.9, there are 2 settings for it. the first one is in ACP->Babble->Configuration->General on the general tab, it is called inline notifications. this will allow the site admin to disable them for everyone if they see fit. then there is a user setting in babble's user settings panel, for them to disable them without having to disable mentions/quotes notifications for the suite site wide. they do not work in whispers in this version, as i have a planned upgrade for whispers in the 2.9 branch, that will bring this feature along with many improvements to whispers.

    not really a good way to start off a message meant to change my mind by telling me i'm wrong and to tell me how much more wonderful an another chat app has 1 feature babble doesn't (but missing many features babble already has). Babble started off as a project to reduce the resource load of ajax based chats, which the other chat is, along with the chatbox app. I've tried my best to keep to that mandatae. you and your community seems to have a different needs than what babble is designed to do. to me, a chat is a quick and temporary communication, not long term storage or a replacement for PM's, forums, blogs, etc. I will think about this, but it is not a promise or even guarantee that i will change my mind on it. I just get a feeling if i did add this, i will get 30 clients coming out of the woodwork and complain about it.

    yeah, the inline notification (the little bell icon). so you want babble to alert you via a inline notification if you get mentioned? I mean i've thought about this before, but i never included it in babble, cause of it's nature. it would be too intensive imho to figure out if the person being mentioned is in that room or not, cause it would get rather annoying fast, if you were in the room and IPS was also notifying you that you were being mentioned in the room. plus there would be other minor issues to work around, like loading the chat to the point of where the mention was made, this as well could be extremely server intensive, if the chat history wen far enough back, and in my experience i've seen chat histories go back several thousand messages in just a few hours, especial if the topic that is getting discussed is a heated one or one of a lot of interest. so all in all, i really don't think inline notifications are really a good fit for babble. if a strong enough case can made for them, or the demand is high enough, i would reconsider, but right now i don't really see them making it into babble in the near future.

    Arrow up - working

    okay this was a left over from adding a second module/controller to 2.8 (cause on install/upgrade the ips installer/upgrader ignores default module/controller, i've reported this, but it still seems to be unfixed), so hopefully this will be the last one causing bugs.

  9. part of the problem seems to be with "custom emojis" the first image is from my installation here, and the second one is from my relatively "fresh" dev board, seems IPS changed them, why i couldn't duplicate right away on my dev, i guess this is similar to what is happening to you too, that you have these basic text emoji's as customs like i do. now i know why, i can work on a solution as i don't see IPS getting rid of "custom emoji's" any time soon

  11. i've converted the suggestions about limiting the mentions to those in the chat to a project card in my project tracker: https://codingjungle.com/stratagem/projects/4-babble/?card=313
  12. of course its not doing it on my dev board lol
  13. this is related to the new image handling, it is seeing emoji's as an attachment.
