Description

Additionally retrieve all unread highlights that didn't make it into the backlog due to the user-set size constraints.

Option 1 - Put them in the chat monitor but not in their buffers

Option 2 - Put them in their buffers also, but that makes the buffers non-linear (they'll have gaps). You could provide some interactive widget in place of gaps between non-consequent messages that allowed requesting the backlog for the gap. (Or even better, allowed requesting X lines north or south of the gap.)

+1 for this request. I'd love option 2.

Was thinking of something similar but it was more along the lines of "filtering highlighted messages from the backlog to the chat monitor", so you don't have to dig around in various channels to figure out who,why and when you where highlighted.

So if you combine them with Option 1.
That would give you an overview of all the highlights you have received since you disconnected.
1 question would be, if it would be smart to make another query to the database after or before the initial backlog fetching or just filtering the backlog client side.
ill have to dig around in the tables to figure out how the data is organized and how highlighted messages are "marked".

#3 Updated by firesock almost 8 years ago

Attaching a patch that adds an option for the chat monitor to filter from the backlog. This doesn't solve the issue with not looking pre-backlog, but does make it easier to work out what was said while disconnected.
