Currently chat displays a login message until a user enters a Name and Email.
The problem I see with this is it just comes across as another opt-in screen which could be misconstrued as an attempt to get an email address.
What would be great is if the full chat of what's happening now was displayed but when the user goes to type or wants to join in they are prompted to login themselves as per normal.
This would significantly increase initial participation and greatly reduce people using dummy emails through lack of trust.
Is this possible?
One would assume that the option: Chat Messages and User Lists. (default) would have done the trick but when I select this all I see is my welcome line and a blank canvas beneath. It's also considerably hard to find the login form through the settings button.
