Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

When connectivity is lost using the mobile chat, a modal box politely indicates this. The issue is, while the box is dismiss-able, it will immediately reappear if connectivity has not been reestablished.

This is problematic when I know I have no connection (elevator, basement, bomb-shelter) but intend on reading the conversation up to the point of connection loss, as the modal box is quite intrusive.

I'm proposing a fix to temporarily disable connectivity notifications that could be reset when connectivity has been reestablished.

A workaround I frequently use: If you dismiss it and then scroll back up really fast it appears out of the way of the bit you've probably already read. – Flexo Jun 15 '13 at 19:49
@Flexo That's the workaround I use too; despite the fun in the test of dexterity, I think we can do without the mini-game ;) – Northborn Design Jun 15 '13 at 21:32
