Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

In chat, as well as showing the unread count in the page (i.e. browser tab) title, also show an indication that you were refereed to (@name) in one of those unread messages.

(5) Chat Feedback

could become

(5#) Chat Feedback

Updated: as Marc noted, 5+ is likely to be interpreted as >5.

I like the idea of an asterisk or an exclamation mark instead of a plus sign. Great idea.

I like that. I suspect "5+" is a bit misleading, perhaps (I imagine lots of queries: does that mean "more than 5?") - but interesting idea.

You could use an asterisk, octothorpe, or caret instead of the plus sign. – waiwai933 Aug 3 '10 at 22:44
Good point, # would be better. – Richard Aug 4 '10 at 8:46
How about @, wouldn't that be more understandable? – Benjol Aug 10 '10 at 9:10
