Clone identity in IM titlebar

Post by Cards »

Any chance you could add the local screen name to the IM window titlebar? It would make it perfectly clear which name you were using to IM someone. (for when you're screwing with friends...) I'm sure there's a less sinister reason why this would be handy too, but I can't think of it right now :-?

Or, for example for my two screenames (which I'm willing to put here).

Two of my AIM accounts:
Nybbles2
Factor Arts

If I'm using both, I'd like to have RECIPIENT1 - Nybbles2 and RECIPIENT2 - Factor Arts. This way when I have 2 AIMs running it is easier to tell which account you have the IM window pointing to.

But anyways, this has been requested before, so I'll leave it at no more than, this would be nice to have.

I just never understand why people go on two names and talk to people on both of them, anyway...

Because there is a limit of 200 buddies that you can have on a list...

Personally, I use the cloning feature so that both my girlfriend and I can be online at the same time. Sometimes there are old chat windows left open ... it's easy enough to look at the text to see who the window belongs to, but adding the screenname to the top of the IM windows would not be a bad thing :).
