I was able to star my own message by pinning it and unpinning it. Pinning a message adds a star, even to your own messages, but when the pin is removed, the star remains.

    As a chatroom owner you are awesome and you know it. status-bydesign I'd say. – Bart Dec 6 '12 at 20:18
  • "Pinning a message adds a star, even to your own messages, but when the pin is removed, the star remains." -- huh. I never noticed that. – Adam Lear Dec 6 '12 at 20:30
  • Well, a pin kind of has to have an implied star, because a pin has a custom icon. If the pin isn't an implied star, then the first person who stars the pinned message will visually have no effect, because it doesn't add a number next to it for only having one star. There would be no visual difference between a pin with 0 stars and a pin with 1 star. – animuson Dec 6 '12 at 20:40

Yeah, you can. But have no fear, Jeff said it was okay.

As such, this is currently – although at the time balpha seemed willing to entertain reasons why the behaviour should be changed, if you have a compelling reason.
