I never edit invisible - but as others have said, I find chat almost useless. Whenever I have looked at it, I see multiple conversations going on simultaneously, and things scroll off the screen before I can even digest what is being said. Maybe it's just my slow thought process, but I find the whole thing a buzzing confusion and can't stand to look at it, much less try to use it to communicate. Slack works better, with its contained selection of members - and forum discussion is even more my speed. I am R2...

if you turn on WME, you see the chat box is very big cover the right bottom corner of the display...and the "Go Inivible" is directly seen.
my suggestion just Remove "Go Invisible" from this box..

the issue with new editor who are invisible and do mesh thing. specially first thing what they are do is, closed UR which are in progress, or UR where we are waiting for some responds from the reporter...and ussually they close more than 50 UR at one same time.

this is very annoying..I tried many time to communicated through the closed NI/Solved UR, by the chat box..but never got any answer from the person who is invisible.
they are maybe to affraid being Visible or answer.

if the Invisible is not remove...so there must be a better way to comunicate with the Invisible Editor.

I agree that this should be disallowed for at least 1/2's.

I came into the WME Features Request forum today to specifically post a request to remove the 'Invisible' option from rank 1 & 2 editors and saw this thread which is similar. I don't feel new editors should be able to edit in invisible mode and must earn this option much like the increase in rank. Waze map editing is part of a trust network and if everyone can't be seen and somewhat moderated, the trust network is destroyed.

Doesn't mean another editor hasn't tried to get in touch with you before via WME Chat but the main point of the request here is for newer editors to not have the invisible option, not whether they would use the chat feature.

What's the point of being invisible while editing?

I guess I should have worded it better. I'm there but the window is never open. With a 10 inch screen, it takes up too much real estate. ;)

No sorry: the invisible mode allow managers to check what users are doing, particularly bad users ;)
Never remove it.

I do not send map chats, and have never received any. That said, if there are issues with specific editors, I suggest that the concerns be raised to the appropriate people.
