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

I have a new suggestion for Chat, I would like to see chat always open while I am editing so I can glace over and respond to a message if need be. You can still fully edit the map without the chat window getting in the way but yet see all messages in the chat as well. When you click on a segment, the chat window would still remain in place however segment details would be available on top of it (you would have to scroll down to see the chat again), then it would move back up within view after you no longer have any segments selected. Here is a concept idea that I think would work and look great, it makes use of the white space on the left side below your editing level & points.

I agree and like it. We initially suggested, movability and resizeable window. Docking it in one spot and taking up a lot of space from the map isn't really good.

Are the on-map editor icons part of the chat function?
I'm seeing a rather high number of editors' icons right where I am... coincidence, or bug?

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 appears this topic has been posted in multiple places, here is the LINK to the other thread.
