Summary
For some reason it is impossible to copy/paste parts from the ingame messages. This really is not a very acceptable situation in this day and age.

Motivation
Many times with ingame messages to FS members one may want to quote only part to keep the text down to reasonable length.
This is not possible in the present system and is incredibly annoying. Especially when talking to people in different languages it might be useful to copy part and have translate it.

Messages also are stored only a relative short time, so one has to bump messages regularly if you want them saved, otherwise they get automatically deleted. And the whole point of saying things in an ingame message is to save the text and not have it disappear like the chat texts
Secondly:
Give players an additional folder where they can store up to 25 messages that will never be automatically deleted. That way players can decide for themselves which messages will be saved without having to scroll down and bump them to keep them recent.
The amount of space will need to be limited to x-number of messages to prevent players from storing every message forever.


Possible downsides.
None,except the programming time

Possible advantages
Better communication within the game

+1 this is another idea that has been needed for a long time. I would like to see it show a link as well so we could send fellowship members to helpful forum links.

anyway there is a trick:
- double-click on the text to copy (nothing happens until the next step)
- right-click > settings > close the flash player window. Now the text is highlighted and it is possible to use Ctrl+c and Ctrl+v to copy and past ;)

Thanks for the tip...but I really, really would like it if this could just be done the normal way. It's kinda crazy that one has to find ways to go about this in a complicated manner when it should be a basic function
