More a suggestion than a bug.

Hello,

I guess most people noticed but the chat function is very 'japanese'. I don't know how many japanese fits in the typing bar but I bet it's more than English. I often have to cut sentence in 2 or sometimes 3 parts. I hope this will be changed because it can get pretty annoying. (I'd like to be able to push enter to enter the text as well but that doesn't really matter much.)

I hope this is the right forum for this, couldn't think of any. (As far as I know there is not really a 'general alteil discussion' forum)

Agree with this, especially your point about hitting enter to send the text.

I know what you mean.
Before the alpha and beta, we actually asked Japanese staff if they could change the number of characters you can type in chat.
And they said that it's not impossible, but it would be very difficult.

I understand that it could be very frustrating to break up a sentence while chatting, BUT surprisingly the number of characters you can enter is exactly same as the number in Japanese Alteil chat... which is 50 characters. (that includes spaces and commas) I logged in on Japanese Alteil, and counted this. :)
But because Japanese doesn't need a space after each word, and you can use kanji to make the length of one sentence shorter, it seems like you can type a lot more in Japanese.

About entering the text, hit enter twice to enter the text.
I think this is also because this chat system is based on Japanese chat system.(in Japanese chat, enter once to change hiragana to kanji, and enter again to actually enter the text)

After bugs and glitches are fixed, we will ask everyone for suggestions or advice so we can improve Alteil.
Even if they said that it would be difficult to increase the max number of characters in chat, if many users feel that it should be more, they may give it a thought again. who knows... ;)

Ah, that double enter will feel like a gift from heaven from now on.

I agree with you both.
All topics are about questions, bugs, strategy, announcements, rules, etc... and everything else is off-topic.
I'll ask Logress about general Alteil discussion thread.

Until then, anyone who wants to give us a suggestion can post here. (I'll move this topic later when the general Alteil discussion thread is made)
