Making the chat box easier to spot #862
This refers to #810, one part of a series of enhancements to the chatbox.
Let me know your thoughts if you folks like it, or there's something I missed, etc.
Hey @Mordax thank you for the PR! We have a redesign in the works for the chat area of Hubs (we're going to be repositioning and increasing the priority of the chat box overall) and so we'll take into account this variant you've shown here with the action button background as we determine what style changes to make.
I super appreciate you surfacing this usability issue and I hope we'll be able to get these design changes out soon. I'll close this PR for now -- once the updates are out (likely by late Feb, but not totally sure) then please feel free to resurface further contrast issues or provide additional design suggestions/PRs.
So here's what I'll suggest, which would get us a good step closer to some of the redesign. We'd like the chat box on the bottom to be similar to the one we show in the entry step here:
It should still likely be reduced in opacity when not focused, but the background should become white with black text (basically, the exact same style as the lobby chat box above) when it's focused. I think you can probably do this by either re-using the existing lobby chat box styles (
Thanks again for looking into this, let me know if you think those style changes sound reasonable to try!
