I love the idea of Google Hangout. I'm using it on a daily bases to help / collaborate with editors. Those who opt in to use their Google username is great or add their Waze username as an alias to their Google name to keep their Google info private.

Why is Chat has to be fixed in one spot... Why can't we move it or resize it? I know, I had to minimize an bring it up many times while editing. Too much wasted efforts when you think about all the editors.

+1

it would also be nice if you can choose whether the message can be viewed publicly in the room or only peer to peer.......ability to group editors in chat by the State/Region they are editing in.

It appears this topic has been posted in multiple places here is the LINK to the other thread.
I PM'ed @Alanoftheberg regarding this.

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.

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.

There should be an option to switch countries, especially if you open it in Chrome's incognito only to find out if always starts you in England. If you switch to Australia but open chat too quickly it connects to United Kingdom and the only way to change is to reload the page.

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'?

You just have to work with a second browser tab. ;) This works fine for me.
