Maybe it’s just me…but I find it annoying that I never know when someone has PM’ed me or responded to me in chat at all until I decide at some point (usually well after they’ve done so) to go and manually examine the chat window to see if there are responses.
Can there at least be an option for one or more of the following:
~ Toggle on/off a subtle (not annoying) audio cue that alerts you to chat messages (or at least to PMs)
+ maybe sub options for this that let you choose what messages you want “alerts” for - PMs, Guild chat, world chat, new global channels (each one separately), etc.
~ always-visible/not-always-visible option for the chat box on your screen.
+ sub option - instead of the whole chat box always visible, keep most recent new messages on the screen until you’ve clicked/entered the chat box (showing you’ve seen them) OR at least a small number/icon in the corner of your screen that just lets you know there are new messages to be read?
Any or all of these could be good options.
I do understand why some others don’t want to be annoyed by the chat box all the time or at all or whatever - but for me, I’d really like to know when a message comes in for me.
Right now the chat box is kind of clunky and provides almost no notifications (the very brief, faded out flash of new message text almost never manages to alert me if I’m busy with something, and I swear it just flat out doesn’t happen at all at least half of the time).
Anyhow, just my 2 cents. I don’t want these things to be forced on anyone, but having the options to be a little better notified if you want them would be nice.
thank you! <3 the game!
