    Why is the chat now where it is and also a must be on top function? It blocks the bottom of the screen and when expanding Who's Online covers the bottom portion of this.

    Can we have a way to disable this? Some of us are on small screens and can't afford the real estate.

    Thanks for the feedback. We're in the process of testing this feature and will be making some tweaks.

    Thanks Mikel.
    I agree it is a nice addition to the site, just would like to lose the always on top part of it and possibly put it into the tool bar instead of resting above it.

    For the time being, if you mouse over the "We Are Here" image you can click the "X" near the top right to close that image and regain access to the normal chat bar.

    I am confused... it pops up

    Welcome to Milepoint's live chat help.
    Let us know your name so we can get started.

    Is this meant to be a help function when I have a problem with the site? Or a chat with other members? And why is it asking me for my name -- surely it knows I am logged in and my name is HaveMilesWillTravel?

    The Chat bar has disappeared from my IE9 browser and I feel so... lonely. I think only platinum status will pull me from the depths of my dispair now. :(

    EDIT: It's back, but I'm still only Gold.

    Will it be back when we are all platinum?

    I also suggested to Mikel that members shoud have the option of trading in the arm for other body parts.

    On my Mac Mountain Lion on Chrome I have a lovely little wheel-like flower with "chat options" when I pass over it, which replaced the annoying one. This is really nice now, thanks Mikel. Now I must figure out with whom to chat?
