Its just an idea, and I am interested in positive contributions only for the first 10 days. After that time, feel free to voice legitimate negative feedback. In other words, think and build, before dismiss and destroy. Thank you.
The top bar of the local chat window has the number of people in chat on the left, spaces for other chat windows in the middle, and on the right a pin button and minimize button.
The bar second from top has two settings buttons on the left and on the right the number of people in local again (redundant?). The middle is blank.
I think it would be nice if that middle space on the second bar had some summarized information in the form of icons already used in local chat…for example if there were a red or yellow flashy in local it would be nice to have that icon at the top of the chat window too because you could see it right away in that space instead of needing to constantly scroll local, maybe over 100 names, to check for something that might not be there. I mean you do know instantly if there are not many people in local, but its the populated systems more likely to have someone gone suspect or criminal, right?
That space could also include personal standings icons to let you know if anyone of particular standings is in local with you.
This would neither increase nor decrease the information available in local but merely give a summary of information already there, so needless scrolling of potentially long local windows could be reduced.
Even better would be if those icons had the count of each icon beside them. That would keep you up to date with changes in numbers.
I had a look but I don’t see that this idea has been posted before. Sorry if I am wrong.
And once again, give it 10 days before getting all negative about it please. Plenty of time for misgivings later.
