#1292 closed Enhancement (Invalid)

Description

Could you guys take a few minutes and add a checkbox or something so people can enable such wonderful things as "Show Notices as Direct Chat" without having to spend a bunch of time Googling around (if they even bother doing that- how would the average user even know you had hidden preferences)?

The hidden preference to show notices as direct chat have references to them going back to March of 2006, so its rather frustrating to see that something that's clearly desired by many people is already there, just not in a way that is immediately usable by a number of people.

  • Keywords defaults added

There is actually already a checkbox for this option at the bottom of the Interface Tab in Preferences.

The Hidden Preferences list can be found here:

Things that are 'Hidden' are either there because they are not ready for primetime or simply used by a smaller focus group of people that it doesn't warrant a checkbox that add confusion to the interface.
