MattisManzel 2005-09-27 : Nevermind, feature-ideas on the mailing-list vanish into eternity and noone ever reads them again (and a bit it's the same with tickets ;)), better place them here, so they can be developed, also by non programmers and without disappearing from the recent changes. If some idea is nice we can always start a ticket on it. That's step No 2.
There is the locate patictipants function on the right side of the main window. I never used subethaedit and can only guess what it is.
On tings text tends to become pretty chaotic. We even had tings in several languages. When people write a lot and the session goes on for several hours it can be hard to find out where the other participants are writing. By that time we used MoonEdit? and finally finding out that a click on a participant in the list takes you to this person's cursor helped me. But: It would be far nicer it you could see the person, if you could "locate participants". The color shows up to the right where the person's cursor is.
More useful information could be given in this bar to the right. Where has a participant been writing? The line of the last edit in full color, older edits getting more and more pale.
Maybe full width of the bar for cursor localisation and half width for edits?
The windows version of MoonEdit? has an interesting feature of "locate participant". The volume of the typing sound of other participants gets lower and lower the more distant on the page they are from your own cursor.
Well, anyhow having started this page, I can add: I enjoyed the typing-sound feature in MoonEdit? a lot. It creates an extraordinary magnetism to stick to a text and follow its developement. I'd be glad to see it developed for gobby. This is no gimick, I think. Maybe check it out on your sister's win box these days ;) (two typers don't do it. It only starts getting sexy with 4+)
