I'm not much of a chat person, so maybe this is a me problem. But when I have the chat closed I get this ever-updating icon for every message anybody types into chat. It's not the biggest deal, but it doesn't seem useful and it is a little distracting. If I click "HIDE" at the top, the video window is too large and gets cut off on either the top or bottom of the frame.
Chat Notification Count
I'll also chime in that the chat notification just isn't useful. Reply count is nice but if I have the chat minimized it is because I don't want to deal with chat right now (spoilers, people spending way too long gushing about abusers, etc).
And if/when I do pop back into chat, I am not going to go read all the previous comments. I'll just see what the current topic is.
