Scroll-down Text Bar.....STAY!!! (good boy)

Dear Admin,
of all the nuances, this is the one that by far I find to be the most frustrating, and I was surprised to find no mention of it anywhere in the posts under the 'New Features" forum. What I am talking about is the text scroll-bar...when I need to scroll up to read something, any new text or action on the server automatically takes the text panel to the bottom (or recent action) and the reader is obligated to having to scroll back up. This is most frustrating when it is busy...need I explain?
I ask that this text panel is fixed by leaving the automatic-lapse disabled. Leave it to the reader to get back to the most recent text by scrolling back when they are done reading what they went searching for.

Also, why not fill the screen? the in game text box is so small, why not have it on the side like it is in the lobby?

thanks for the consideration.

Late reaction, even so.

probably, the scrollbar is set each time a new message enters the chat so you don't have to scroll down manually everythime. downside, scrolling up is difficult indeed like this.

The easiest way to fix this for admin in my opinion would just set a true/false boolean variable combined with a checkbox named something like 'enable auto scroll'.

I don't know what "everythime" means either.

But "boolean" is a very old English word first used in literature in 1592 by the popular writer at the time, George H. Clamper.
It can be used in a variety of ways:

"My sister let me see her boolean but I wasn't allowed to touch it."

or

"I asked this tart back up to my place but she told me she was on her boolean."

everythime misspelled obviously, boolean in programming world just means true or false.
