That sucks, tho' I've no idea what app you're using to get into AW chat or what you're running it on. Sounds like your chat app is what sucks? What if you visited via your Chrome browser using Mibbit?The two main things that bother me about current chat are
a. it kicks me out whenever I switch between apps (I tend to have Chrome and Scrivener open in full screen, and swipe between them — although sometimes it also likes to just kick me out for no reason), and
b. it doesn't show chat history, which makes it harder to follow conversations (or participate in them — especially combined with that first issue). This latter issue is a major one for me, basically the main reason why I'm never actually around in current AW chat.
