We made more updates to the chat to improve the mobile experience and a few other things.

- Dynamic font size for mobile. Smaller font so more can appear on the screen.
- Mobile user list popup box. Instead of scrolling to the top to access this list, you can click a button to view it, then hide it again to quickly switch chats
- "Back to the Top" of the page button added so users can quickly scroll to the top via mobile.
- Email notification update to prevent email spam each time you get a new message. New Chat settings page to control email notifications (https://www.epicnpc.com/account/chat)
- Last reply indicator has been added to the user list so you can quickly see if you were the last reply.
- Chats can be marked as 'unread' in case you want to read the chat, but are not ready to reply


July 17
We made some updates to the chat today, mostly style updates and the canned reply buttons are back.

- The dot no longer indicates a new message. Instead the dot indicates whether or not a user is online.
- A new bar on the right side indicates new messages.

We're still working on a bunch of changes to the chat so you'll be seeing more updates next week.

Maybe move the green dot right next to the username?

@EpicNPC I assume this is not intended, but I think I have a bug IDK when it started though if it was this update or last but noticed it today. If I reply to a group conversation (for instance the one we have going for middlemen) Everytime I respond it boots me from conversation I am in and back to the main chat screen.

I noticed that when I click on the edit button for any forum post, it takes me to a new page for editing, instead of letting me edit it right away like before. Unrelated to the chat but I think it started after this chat update.

Could you add some indication whether the last reply to the message was from you or from the other party? Currently there's no way to know whether you replied without opening the conversation.

Before the chat update, the icon of the message would be the avatar of the person who replied last, but now the icon always shows the other person's avatar. This was a very useful feature, especially when you click on the chat button on the sidebar for a quick view of the previous messages.

This was caused by something else we're working in. It's been fixed.

I'm unable to replicate this. Is it still happening?

Yes, we'll add an indicator so members can quickly see if they are the last reply or not.

I think a better solution would be to add an "unread" option. This way if you read a chat, but don't want to reply right away, you can set it back to unread for later.

We made a minor change. If you're account is online, you won't get the emails anymore. If you're online, you should see the notifications in the top right so there's really no reason to also get an email.

That's a really bad change. Please revert or add an option to always receive them.

I'm not sure why anyone would want to get email alerts when you're already online.

For chat replies or for new chats?

You can be chatting with someone for 20-30 mins and you'll end up with 100 emails. Why would you want that?

Emails should arrive for all new messages and replies apart from the one that you already have open. Like how it was before the chat update.

My email client gives me much better notifications than the site, with a permanent icon in the taskbar.

Online status on the forum lingers for 15-20 min and it's not a good indication whether you're actually online.

Idle time is currently 15 mins, so you'll appear online for this long after you leave.

What about if we add a "Mark as Away" status option? User's can manually update their status to "Away" then during these 15 mins, you'll start to get email alerts for new messages.

That would work, as long as it only affects email notifications.

No, sorry 1-1 messages can't add other members because that would convert it to a group chat. You have to create a new group chat with all the members you want to include.

I see that an "Away" option is added but I always get an error when trying to activate it. Is this a bug or is it not yet fully implemented?
