Note from the devs

This is on a limited 2 week trial run, after which we will evaluate all feedback, positive AND negative, and act appropriately.
There are features that can be implemented to improve it, some of it is set in stone, but all of it depends on your feedback.


Quackers are a typing indicator, these are a small bubble (or three dots) above your head indicating whether or not you are typing.
