Currently, the only way to cancel stars in a chat transcript is when the chat-message is visible in the chatroom's sidebar.

cancel stars dialog box

However, in a fast-moving, multi-star chatroom, the window of opportunity to cancel can be short, and rapid changes in starring can quickly make this impossible to do in a timely way.

We use stars as markers in moderator chat events (where the Community managers disseminate important information to the moderator teams) as well as for town halls during elections.

Feature request: Allow mods/room owners to cancel stars from the chat message menu box, including in the transcript.

Yes! I was trying to clear some stars earlier and failed miserably because of this. –  ChrisF Feb 5 '13 at 20:32
this would be most useful. –  voretaq7 Feb 5 '13 at 20:44
What? I think you mean that every chat item should get it's own star: clicking on it increases the size and color intensity. Also they should be animated to sparkle. And we should rename chatroom to galaxy. (Seriously, your idea is better. ;-) –  Jon Ericson Feb 5 '13 at 20:48
@JonEricson No no, Chat Katamari! Screw all other ideas and implement Chat Katamari immediately –  Ben Brocka Feb 5 '13 at 21:06
@BenBrocka shockingly, there are already 331 Google results for "Chatamari Damacy." –  Pops Feb 5 '13 at 21:14
@PopularDemand I get 882. Popularity is through the roof –  Ben Brocka Feb 5 '13 at 21:16

Still no answer or action? –  MysticMagicϡ Jan 8 '14 at 4:52
This would be very very useful, and I can't imagine it's very difficult to implement... –  David Z Sep 10 '14 at 0:35
