Stupid old messages in chat.
If I send a message to someone and close the chat, then open the chat again, the old message comes up. That's bad, I don't want all of yesturdays convesations filling up the chat, I hope they go away if you turn off your PC.

Only the most recent few lines show up when opening a chat window.

Oh, yeah, only the last two. Thanks XD.

It's more than two for me. I think it depends on how quickly they've been entered in relation to eachother. I just wish there was an option to turn this off.

I understand the reasoning since they added offline messages, but a chat log you can't turn off is silly. I don't want to see the logs, my conversations aren't worth rereading. I'm not that clever. Don't get why they wouldn't just give you the option to see previous chats.

I can't do offline messages? But options are always good! :)

Huh? This is an awesome feature.
Don't want to read the old chat messages? DON'T READ THEM.
Easy.

Jeez.

Next thing we need is a chat logs folder to store Steam chats for those of us who want them.
This discussion exist because you simply can't please everybody. Add a UI to disable chat logs then you have people complaining about the existence of the UI feature.

I can almost guarantee that you would get almost no complaints if you added an option to turn on and off chat logs. Who would complain about a setting you would only see if you were looking for it?

Just saying, I don't need to have a log of my conversations. I understand some people want the feature, which is why I just think it would be an easy fix to just add the option.

As truth as this might be, haveing such a feature and not a way to disable it is either a MAJOR slip from the devs, or plain laziness. Logs are fine by me, but you should be able to turn them off, at least in the chat window proper.

No one in this thread has really been that whiny about it, other than the antagonistic thread title. I think it's clunky rather than awesome. Nothing wrong with options to have it or disable it.

Same here, how do you remove the old steam chats?
Matt Feb 14, 2013 @ 5:21pm 
It only saves and shows your most recent discussion. After showing it once that same chat won't display again. So to answer your question, the old chats remove themselves after viewing one time.

i viewed it a few times & its still there.
