I'm trying to ping myself in chat but I can't. Is there any way we can add this feature? It would help me organize my thoughts in the chat.
In chat, you can "link" to a previous comment by beginning a comment with the text
[comment id] is a number which uniquely identifies the comment in chat, and can be found by examining the "Permalink" URL. For example, this comment can be found at the URL
[comment id] is that last number,
46361683. You can reply to that by entering
:46361683 This is a reply to geocalc33's comment.
into chat. The result is something like the following (from my point of view; geocalc33 should see the same thing with some highligting):
Note that if you want to reply to something that someone else said, this process is much easier. If you hover over a comment left by someone else, a little down-pointing triangle will appear on the left. Click that, then click "reply to this message" to automatically append the appropriate
:[comment id] text to the beginning of your comment.
