Move the chat box up under the map with a refresh button.

Postby Robert The Red on Fri Jun 15, 2012 7:13 pm

I think the chat box shouldf be moved to under the map, in its current situation there is a need to scroll down to see it and it can be missed when playing in a hurry, plus newbies often dont use it. Also a refresh button on the box so chat can take place faster as at the moment you have to scroll to the top to refresh game to refresh the chat (unless i am doing something wrong.

Doesn't the chat update when the screen auto-recycles? If so, then there's no need for a refresh button for it.

It seems to take a long time to recycle, and in the heat of a battle every second counts. plus i guess they recycle speed could depend on you your internet conection.

Hi thanks for the info on chatglove but can not get it to download. any ideas on the best place to download it from?

Also still think it would be a good idea to move the chat box up under the game so you can observe it easier when playing a game plus the newbies are more likely to take notice of it.

The chat does auto-refresh with the game, however auto-refresh is only active during speed games, and it's set at 10 seconds.

Can't all users refresh the map and chat by hitting "r."

Also, if you don't like the location the alternative to chatglove is BOB (also for FF and greasemonkey) which has an option to put it at the top.

Since I use those plug-ins, I'm all for them being implemented into the site. I think the Tools and Enhancements forum and the T&E themselves sort of provide a semi-official beta testing grounds for this stuff anyway. Not sure what the relationship between Suggestions and T&E is.

Thanks for response, I have recently discovered Bob and chatglove and they are both brilliant, love having the chat window at the top of the page. recommend both those apps.
