If person sends multiple messages in a row, display the username and avatar only once in MediaWikiChat
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

This is similar to how chats like Google Hangouts, Tumblr Messaging, Skype, and I believe Messenger do this. Providing this ability would free up more space so there's less distractions to the viewer and hopefully also be easier to read.
