Suggestion about chat. (in General)

It's incredibly annoying to have to scroll through every name in the CB chat/pm list because they aren't in alphabetical order. Can this be fixed?

Good suggestion.

Yes, that's one I'd totally support.

This is already the case for the alternative chat client.
For the default one; just type the first (few) letter(s) of the name to zoom to the correct user...

For those of us computer illiterate, can someone show us how to get this "alternative" client?

^^ Plus, not everyone has a name that starts with a letter.

Brackets and such could always go at the front, before A. Not complicated.

Shade is hosting it at his site. You can get it by going to, clicking on Helpful Files and Links, then Carnage Blender Chat Client.

Download it and run the java application. It's easiest to create a batch file in the same directory that does something like:

java ChatClient Ranger <pass> carnage 7007
