Avatar to the left of each message in Chat
Similar to other chat message systems, include the user's avatar on the first line of each chat message. Obviously this should not be passed to anyone using an IRC client with flowdock. When in flows with several users talking rapidly, it's hard for the eye to keep track without the avatars.

My team has a Jennifer and a Jenniffer and at a glance it's easy to miss which of them is talking. Avatars would mitigate that difficulty.
It already exists in the conversation threads. Why not just adding it to the normal chat? Would be a quick task.
need it yesterday. Please make it happen. Thank you.
Have to agree, would be really helpful.
Totally would like to see that as an option! :)

It'd be great to be able to have this as a preference. Some folks like avatars some folks like to just see names.

I would really love to see this functionality implemented. Also, allowing spaces in usernames would be awesome, with a 100+ people in we have had to resort to firstname.lastname naming policy just to make sense of who is who (plenty of Mikkos and Villes here...). Would be so much better to have Firstname Lastname with the avatar.

This is definitely an issue in larger chats, for example we as a company have tens (if not hundreds) of people called Mikko.
