I have a permalink to a comment:
It takes you to a chat room / transcript with the particular message highlighted.
That ok, but what I had really wanted was to reference that comment _within_ the context of it's associated Q & A.
Yes, at the top of the chat room / transcript there is a link to the question:
[Can't add, or even create, many tags for new question](https://topanswers.xyz/databases?q=1114)
However, while clicking on that does take you to the associated question, the comment that I was linking to is no longer highlighted on the right. 😿
We are working on a fairly big change to chat that will mean this problem goes away.
The plan is to replace the chat scroll bar with a minimap of all the messages ever posted in the room, and have infinite scroll in both directions: the transcript and chat will then effectively be amalgamated.
Another couple of things this will make easier:
* replying from the 'transcript'
* seeing at a glance where messages fit into the overall history of a room
I'll update this post when we release the changes.
