      Description

      Make normal chat more accessible, so people can navigate easily between different sections.

      Original description
      Most chat rooms have the place to post the message at the bottom of the screen and the chat history runs in reverse order. This implementation works just fine, but it might be confusing to users who are used to the more traditional method. We could consider changing the orientation of the messages and the location of the message box.
