    Nice job on the "All" and "World Chat" panes/tabs.   Can you put in a way to turn them off now?  .  Oh and maybe fix Alliance blast too.

    Another example for thing, nobody needs. Take the different colors out of the chat, that is not readable. And ALL means only: scroll so fast you cannot follow. All chat was okay for me before, except the dark letter color. No need for ALL or World chat. And no need to differen colors in one row.

    ALL is just a filter that allows you personally to see the messages you're receiving or sending in your various chats. What you post in alliance chat is not visible to world chat. 
    ahhh he so good with words :smiley: i could not say it better

    Click the little hyphen on the left-hand sidebar of the chat box.  It minimizes chat.

    The worldwide chat doesn't include alliance.  Alliance is still right there, in the button with the muscular men.  The ALL chat includes every channel you see.  World chat is only your world (alpha, beta, gamma, delta), but not your alliance EDIT: and not your sector-only chat.

    Just...just click on sector or alliance?  That seems like it should fix this problem for you.

    ^^^^ nothing wrong with this post from jayhawk57.

    I just find it amusing considering how long it's taken to implement global chat and within moments of going live the "I don't like it" posts begin.

    The forum can be a very funny place at times.   ;)

    I "like" or "dislike" your posts based on their merit not on who you are. If I don't give it a "like" or "dislike" it just means I don't agree with all of it, or more likely, I haven't seen it.  ;)

    Yes, because "All" includes EVERYTHING that you can see.  It's a way to see all of the communications inbound.  If you want to see only alliance, click the Alliance chat.

    Other users cannot see your All Chat window and cannot see your alliance chat if they are not in your alliance.

    NEW CHAT IMPROVEMENTS

    • [Chat] World Chat added. Find World Chat by clicking on the once-defunct International Sector Chat icon.

    • [Chat] ‘ALL’ tab added in chat. This is a live stream of all incoming chats you are receiving from World, Sector, Alliance, or Private Message. The messages are different colors depending on where they originate from. You can respond to specific channels from the ALL tab by using:

      • /g for Global/World (example: /g hello, friends in my World!)

      • /s for Sector (example: /s hello, Sector friends!)

      • /a for Alliance (example: /a hello, Alliance friends!)

      • /w [User ID] for Private Message (example: /w 5071196 hello, friend!)

        • When in the chat window, typing /r populates the ID of the last person you sent a private message to and/or received a private message from, saving you from having to re-type the ID.

      • When in the unique windows for these chats, you do not need to use these commands, however you still can if you’d like (for example, you can send a message to alliance chat from sector chat using the /a command before your message)

      • Conversely, you cannot send a message in the ALL channel without one of these commands present.

      • /help contains this list of commands if reference is needed.

      • The functionality of ignoring users, sending private messages by clicking on someone’s base, and interacting with private messages via the envelope icon and Private Message menu all retained.

      • The functionality of sending base coordinates via /base is retained, but will require channel specification if in the ALL chat.

    • [Chat] Hitting the tab key on your keyboard now switches between chat channels.

    • [Chat] Mouse wheel scrolling in chat window now supported at full screen.

    May your shipyards never be idle.

    It IS private.  That's why it's a different color.

    What you see in ALL is the communications that YOU  can see, not what everyone else can see.  If something is typed in your alliance chat (i.e. it is green), then non-alliance members cannot see it in their own ALL windows.

    Think of ALL as being a constant stream of all data that you are subscribed to.
