    Hello! My name is Flavius-Valentin Anton, i'm a first year college student at "Politehnica" University of Bucharest and i attend the Community & Development Labs [1] course held by Rosedu[2]. As announced by the mentors (CCed) a while ago on this list, we intend to do some improvements to Pidgin (using a cloned repo for testing but sending patches via email). This is my first patch so far and it's an enhancement to the "Offline Message Emulation" plugin [3].

Thus, users using protocols that do not support offline messages natively, won't interpret them as live, deliberate messages. Instead, they will see a notification right before each one. Basically, what i've done was to add this text : "(Offline message)" before the actual sender's message, such that both users know that this is an offline message and not a simple pounce.
