Plus! Formatting only works for people with plus!, now it works for everybody with msn...

And besides there are enough other things plus! can implement and maybe the msn features aren't as good as patchou's and they stay in plus!

Isn't that what Windows NOT LIVE Messenger is for?

MS didn't steal those ideas. They are given by the users of WLM; the more users request, the more chances of MS implementing them in the future versions.

TBH, if Microsoft is thinking about implementing features into their Messenger that Plus! already has, then it just means Plus! is doing good :D.

If Microsoft aks their users what they want and they didn't come up with any feature that Plus! already has, Patchou might ask himself if he isn't doing the wrong thing.

Indeed, they posted list like this multiple times before, for example [trhread=67592]. A few of those features might make it into the client eventually, but I definitely don't see them adding it all. For example: They talked about skinning last time, now it disappeared from their list.
Finish the problem

* aNILEator imagines...

Introducing in Messenger X you can 'ping' your friends, create emotisound databases, add full formatting to your chats and chat logs including ink picture saving and custom emoticons, we've also added desktop quicklinks feature so you can quickly see if your favourite friend is online or not without opening the contact list!

As we realise the popularity of messenger amongst the more youthful generation, and the need to always be one click away from your friends wherever you are, we've added a unique protection mode to hide messenger from prying eyes we like to call this the stealth mode, you can even add passwords to lock messenger in stealth mode!

Contact Cleaner is a new tool to help see who keeps you on their contact list and who doesn't, with an easy to use optimization tool to help purge your contact list, enabling you to sign in faster!

Now only 32MB Download! It's our best ever build and yet we still find the time to squeeze in all the crap you hate and don't use and our file transfer and message relay systems still fail all the time!

Complete your experience today, The wow REALLY starts now!

hehe

aNILEator, you missed the most important thing of messenger ever, the severe memory leaks that they "try" to get rid of in every build but actually get worse.  And there has to be as many ads as possible, maybe even flash movies as the background of your chats....  Maybe one day.... :tongue:

Well, what I had in mind has been said already.
I'll add one point though :

msgplus! can do fine on it's own with the scripting engine.

This just gives it a reason to install msg plus!, for the scripts, that you can custom create, and use for YOUR own needs.
