It looks great, but I think something like PMs in chat or an alert for direct messages like MGODLEW suggested would be even greater ;)

I've been trying to use chat in WME but it's not easy mainly for two reasons:
First, if the chat window is minimized to increase working area, the notification for new comments/messages is barely visible, I often miss there's something new unless I'm actively waiting for it and looking at the icon every few minutes.
Second, there are no time stamps, when I finally notice that something happened I can't tell if it was a minute or a hour ago, and if it still make sense sending a reply (normally, when I reply I end up being ignored, probably by the same reason I didn't noticed someone was trying to chat in the first place...)
I think if Waze could improve those two points it would be much easier, at least for me :) , to make a real use of chat.

Seems to be fine. No one is "answering" though.

THE TWO CHAT TOPICS HAVE BEEN MERGED AS OF THIS POST.

(There will likely be some duplicate/odd posts above this due to the merging.)

It's where they are viewing, not necessarily actively editing..

It should be center of the editor's current view.

I believe it only affects chat-list visibility. But some simple tests with other editors would confirm it either way and we can update the wiki.

Been doing that for quite a long time. Didn't know there was an issue for anyone...
