two rows of tabs for chat channels

#1 - 2017-05-06 00:35:19 UTC  |  Edited by: Amarak Valerii
i'm not really sure how to phrase this so i'll use images

from this ------ to this

basically i'm asking for chat channels to be able to compress their tabs into multiple rows of tabs for the following reasons
-it makes navigating through channels way easier especially for the majority of us that have a lot of channels open
-it saves valuable screen real estate
-it also makes it easier to spot when and which channel is blinking

Think for yourself. Don't be sheep!

So, chat tab headers automatically splitting into multiple lines for readability instead of overflowing the box as they currently do? Neat idea, +1. (Could let me close one or two of the four chat windows i currently have open.)

yeah this can be a good thing and CCP and always make it a optional thing and not force it on to all,
and then i don't have to rename the game to "chat windows-online" :P hehe

This is by the far on the best suggestions I've seen in a while. Really like it.

CCplease do it x2

Great idea. I would still split my chat windows, since some of them I need to keep open at all times, but this would help to keep things a bit more tidy.

Make it idiot-proof and someone will make a better idiot.

This is the first time I've seen an idea so embraced on the forum.

I'm tempted to try to find something bad to say about it just to keep tradition alive... but I can't. It's a good idea.

Can't and won't happen.

1) Legacy Code prevents them.

2) CCP would sell it as a DLC for $5.99

hardened vet knee-jerk response to anything new. It had to be brought to the table sooner or later so i did it and you're welcome!

Knowing CCP they will dedicate one row to "plex chat".

Tradition aside, this is brilliant, simple and very useful feature.

I like this idea
