Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

This issue appears to happen to any message that is

  • multi-line,

  • long,

  • a response to another message,

  • not (or not necessarily) formatted to use a fixed font,

like this one:

collapsed message view

Although the message is a response, it does not show the nickname of the person it is addressed at, and I know that is fine. What does not seem fine to me is when I do this

collapsed message view with marks

to see the entire message, I get this:

expanded message view with marks

The bit added at the beginning looks very much like a chat message reference, which I am sure it is, except, as I understand, normally it is supposed to be invisible in the message display box, and this appears to be the only case when it shows up like that. By the way, the issue happens only in live chat, it does not affect a transcript.

So, in the end, I did not really have a problem with that, and even if I had, I am sure that would be a really, really minor problem. But I was wondering, maybe that little quirk would not be too difficult to fix?
