The Editor Chat is up and running!

Postby amitbena » Mon Dec 30, 2013 12:57 pm

Hey everyone, Chat is here!

The chat can be opened with that little icon you can see in the right bottom corner of the screen, above the newly designed footer.



There are chat rooms for each country - and you will automatically be placed in the room for the country you are currently editing. You can see who is currently online, and see where they're editing - just click their name to focus your center of the screen to theirs.

If you just want to quietly move nodes around in privacy you can always go invisible, but what's the fun in that? :D :D :D

There are some thing we still need to work on - ranks displaying incorrectly, etc.

Please let us know if you see any issues at all! I'll be happy to answer all of your questions.

Happy editing!

Of course you can always go invisible if you'd like...

I'd like to suggest 2 things for chat. An alert for when someone directs a message towards you, for example if someone were to type (@MGODLEW: can you assist with this edit?) or click on their username in the chat window and it would direct a message to them, then they would receive an alert. It would also be nice if you can choose whether the message can be viewed publicly in the room or only peer to peer. The locate icon can still remain where it is and would allow to see where that editor is editing. Secondly, I would like the ability to group editors in chat by the State/Region they are editing in.

Also, it'd be nice to see in the chat area when a person has joined/exited the room so I am not answering questions or trying to talk to someone who has left the room..lol

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

Timestamps, please!

Also, colors to differentiate different chats, especially since countries are all together in one chat. For example, country-wide/general chat text could be black, region chat text (per these regions for the US) could be green, state chats could be purple, and private messages (editor to editor) could be red. Think like text chat in an MMO - world chat, guild chat, party chat, private messages.

1. No history.. chat is erased after each permalink button press or page refresh, so I often miss if someone wrote something.
2. Could show for how long someone been inactive.
3. Cannot copy text out of chat. Is someone sends me a permalink, cannot press it.

EDIT:
4. Timestamps.

In Firefox, you can highlight the link, right click, and choose 'open link in a new tab/window'.

I saw the icon when I entered the editor, but it has since disappeared.
