Steam Chat History?

I'm pretty sure there is no way to find the history of your steam chat with a friend, which would be SO HELPFUL especially when your friend says something important, you close the chat, but forget it later.

Also possibly include the feature of having the last message sent from the last chat? (a bit like MSN)


Hopefully Valve will take this in consideration.

(P.S - I of course might be super noob, and there might actually be a super secret ninja area to access history, so by chance there is a method, do tell )

Would help with proving someone a scammer.
Also,did your friend really say something important or did he just he's gay through a joke and you want to make fun of him(just kidding)

I don't think such logs might be considered as proof of anything, unless they're stored on Valve's servers - and I can't imagine the sheer amount of disk space those could occupy.

That said, a local .xml/.txt file per friend (like MSN does) could be handy, though.

Also since Facebook has that recent 'this person has looked at this message' would be useful.
Steam chat just needs to be more user-friendly.

Also we need the feature to send offline messages.

And a chat history, yes.
