O.P. [Suggestion] Nickname feature, why not everywhere?
The nickname is an useful feature but is not available in all areas, for unknown reasons:

  • we need a Contact:Nickname method to get nickname via code (see poll on italian forum);

  • the nickname does not available for the Tabbed Chats feature, to be more precise, in Tab Captions option (Preferences > Conversations > Tab Bar Settings).
ps: it's proved that the nickname was born from the need to replace the inconvenient-long-anonymous nicks. It's a useful feature, why can't be fully exploited?

RE: [Suggestion] Nickname feature, why not everywhere?
This has already been discussed and asked for many times already. Unfortunately it is not possible for Messenger Plus to access the nicknames that WLM uses. Patchou has given some technical reason for this before, and therefore will not be added into Plus.

Sorry.
