Is there a way to view our chat log?

If there is such feature, how do I go about activating it or seeing my log?

Update: The chat message history list that I'm looking for should look something like the "answers"/"questions" tabs found in our profile; listing the messages that each of us have posted and also the respective chat room in which they were posted.

I don't understand why I am down-voted. Please at least state the reason or leave a comment. –  SMTBF Aug 12 '12 at 5:51

Welcome to Meta Stack Overflow! See the faq; votes on MSO are different from the regular Stack Exchange websites. –  Martijn Pieters Aug 12 '12 at 8:03
    
voting is often used to express agreement or disagreement, not to point out a lack of quality or helpfulness It is still weird, I'm not suggesting a new feature but asking if there is such a feature at the moment, hoping for a yes or no. Does this mean they are disagreeing with me trying to view my own chat log? –  SMTBF Aug 12 '12 at 10:19
    
This is like receiving a yellow card right when you have just stepped onto a soccer field. –  SMTBF Aug 12 '12 at 10:21

I suspect the downvotes are because your question was initially somewhat unclear; this feature shouldn't be controversial. –  Jeremy Banks Aug 13 '12 at 6:52

There's no way to view your individual chat transcript from the existing chat UI. I believe there's an existing question asking for this, I can't find a reference to that though

The number of messages is shown in the lower right corner. Clicking it will take you to the chat log.

Hello, thanks for helping out. But erm, I'm actually looking for a list of only our own chat messages, like a chat history or something. –  SMTBF Aug 12 '12 at 6:13
    
Who do you mean by "our"? –  Brad Mace Aug 12 '12 at 6:25

It's about time I got featured in a screenshot. –  animuson Aug 12 '12 at 6:27
    
The "our" refers to each individual user. The chat message history list that I'm looking for should look something like the "answers"/"questions" tabs found in our profile; listing the messages that each of us have posted and also the respective chat room in which they were posted. –  SMTBF Aug 12 '12 at 6:30
