This would change the layout of the chat, and how it functions. Now, below the space where you can write in the chat, there would be 4 tabs: Universal Chat, Area Chat, Private Chat Self, and Private Chat Other. The Universal Chat tab would be the regular chat. Area Chat would only hold the chat for the certain area. For the Wilderness, that would be a 500-block radius. And the two Private Chats would be for your private chats. Included are these new commands:
-/addprivchat [username]: Adds somebody to the current private chat
-/delprivchat [username]: Deletes somebody from your current private chat
-/leaveprivchat: Lets you leave the private chat somebody else has invited you too
-/holdprivchat: Alerts others in your/their private chat that you are in another chat
-/joinprivchat [username]: Sends a private chat request to the specified player
-/scatterprivchat: Only for use in your private chat, it deletes everybody from your private chat
-/scatterxprivchat [username][username]...: Deletes multiple players from your private chat
Please note that private chat may or may not remove whispering and global chatting.
Ehm... this is a good idea. Also, what do you mean spamming out screens with chat boxes? The chat box would still be at the bottom left. Also, with the private chat they could add a swear-block system.
private chat also would be bad cause you can cuss at others
just /w to the people geez
yay spamming our screens with chat boxes
