I'm looking for the kinda-reverse of the neat "highlight your name in chat" feature. Sometimes I open the chatroom window, drop someone a message and then switch back to what I was doing, expecting to be notified when they reply. The notification never occurs because they were never in the room to begin with.
Is there an existing Pidgin plugin that could be configured so that when I type
somename: what is the velocity of an unladen swallow?, could check the room list and respond (with notification)
somename is not in the room. (Non-prefixed messages would obviously be ignored.)
