The 2 personal Chat Boxes do NOT close even when you go to Chat Menu on left and SET them to close, once you go to any other page ... TC DEFAULTS 1 or more personal Chats to the OPEN position, then you go back again to Chat Menu to close it again and still same thing, personal Chat Boxes keep POPPING up on every page even if you tell them to close however you do that.

FIX this D*MN problem TC , this problem has been reported many many many times over 1 1/2 YEARS! by many other people too and it's still NOT FIXED yet! Horrible BUG particularly when trying to Chain. Thanks Elminster PPS Look down for a NICE solution, giving you a hint here.

PPS Solution: Everybody can use IRC for Chat, hence eliminate Chat Boxes entirely
Solution #2: Make Chat Boxes STATIC that do NOT Pop up ... I.E. make a FIELD somewhere on screen where Chat(s) take place, nothing to Pop Up OR Close EVER!

From your previous report on this:

"** I'm updating this here so everybody can see this: **

The current chat system has bugs, like those identified in this thread, and because of the architecture they are very hard to fix. In summary, chat was never originally intended as a P2P system and this has been added in a not terrible brilliant way.

A new version of chat is under early development and will hopefully be released Q3/Q4 2012. We have a 10 page document listing bugs with the current system that need to be fixed, produced with substantial help from staff. It includes this bug.

I am closing this bug simply because there is no point it sitting here; we are working on this however. Sadly this is not a trivial fix.

Thanks for your {understanding,support}.
