2. autocomplete user names

The user can see that a message is directly for him, because the name will display colored, but many usernames (nicknames) are much complicated, so you get problems to write them right.

To write a username right you can use the Vision autocomplete fuction. Thats realy easy, write the first letter/s of the username and press the TAB key of your keyboard.
