OGS could remember top few most commonly used phrases (hi, gg, ty, hf, etc.) and let use the mouse to send one of them.
If we’re being honest, how hard is it to type two letters? I think this is a solution in search of a problem. I vote let’s not clutter up the UI.
Well, knowing that there are people who have problems using a keyboard, I can understand such a wish.
Since I’m a crochety old man, I would like a “Hey you kids get off my lawn!” button I can use to reply to two letter greetings.
LOL, yes, I’d also think that IF we’d ever have buttons or a menu for such then they’d be written out
(and of course there would be a filter that would expand every “LOL” to “laughing out loud”.)
While I agree that it’s not necessary to have shortcuts for simple two-letter acronyms, which are easy to type and probably already widely understood across different languages, it may be useful to have a set of stock phrases that can be auto-translated into the display language of other users that see the chat.
