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
