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.

Also, I know that i do not get points by each save if I edit on the same segment, but does those edits count for the edit number (getting cones) or if I edit 4 times the same segment for example I only get credit for 1 edit?

I´ll like to know how to get to 10k edits or more.
I see people in my area getting this crazy amount of point day by day and regardless of te amount of edits I do every day I don t see my points increasing that much.

I think a nice addition to the chat window would be to see the editors rank in parenthesis in the actual chat window, not just on the right-side where you have to scroll up or down.

Sometimes, when seeing advice being given or questions being answered, it would be nice to know the rank of that person and the validity of the information being given.

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

It is a pain because to be able to do any useful editing I am forced to refresh the page [very often] using the permalink thingy.

Every single time I must close that new chat box!

Please, please find some other place for it, where it 'goes away or can be hidden' perhaps with 'full screen toggle'?

Thank you to the person/s who worked to fix this. It is now far more workable.

Now, I dream only if you could speed up page loads from China, then the max I seen so far THREE people editing for this GIANT area might actually be able to get some useful edits done!

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.

I've noticed several times a hard-hat avatar whose name does not appear in the list, at least not the United States list.
