I just noticed when looking at a message's details, that chat timestamps only show hh:mm:

enter image description here

Could "seconds" be added to that title?

    Couldn't agree more. – user310756 Dec 11 '15 at 8:52
  • Why? What broke your workflow that you need that kind of precision? – rene Dec 11 '15 at 10:11
  • There were some worries of a user not spending any time reviewing a link a bot posted, before responding to the bot. Seconds in timestamps would have easily resolved that. – Cerbrus Dec 11 '15 at 10:12
  • Did you try raising your doubts with the user involved? This is such a corner-case to spend dev time on. – rene Dec 11 '15 at 12:02
  • Not my doubts. I was trying to explain that the user had plenty of time to review the link. I don't think "Dev time" is a good argument not to implement it. This can't possibly be more than a simple template edit. – Cerbrus Dec 11 '15 at 12:05
  • Ok, I just checked the /events endpoint and the timestamp is there so we could create a userscript until this gets implemented. – rene Dec 11 '15 at 12:16
  • @rene What's the /events endpoint? – muru Dec 23 '15 at 14:06
  • @muru That is this one: http://chat.stackoverflow.com/chats/41570/events where you can POST to with this data since=0&mode=Messages&msgCount=100&fkey=YOUROWNFKEY to get chat message as the response. You can find it working in this script of mine – rene Dec 23 '15 at 14:39
