Now that we have a shiny new top bar, have there been any changes in plans to make it visible in the chat rooms? The responses in old threads I've found seem to defer or decline the option due to issues which may have been resolved by now, completely side-step the problem, or refer to third-party solutions.
- Some third-party solutions and a non-answer that addresses the chat index, but not chat rooms.
- Acceptance of the general concept seems unconfirmed. "It has come up before, though, and was deferred. I'll ask around, to see if that has changed..." Based on that same answer, it appears this request was rejected because the suggested refresh rate was too often. The new top bar automatically updates, so this should no longer be an issue.
I'm interested to find out what the current status is with regards to implementing this directly on the SE chatrooms, without the need for client-side plugins or scripts.
