Petition ID 5619: TimeOut Notice triggered by inactivity in either chat.
Submitted Fri, 07 Apr 23 18:11:37 +0000

The problem: Both Story and Banter are displayed. Banter is active but Story is paused. Inactivity in the Story channel causes a TimeOut in both channels. The new TimeOut Notice is pretty conspicuous UNLESS one is on a touchscreen, in which case the Notice is hidden behind the keyboard. To the user this looks like Banter has just gone quiet, no updates. But posting a comment in either channel, then, fails to clear the TimeOut, and the new comment is not visible. One can end up waiting a long time before realizing everything's timed out.

Suggestion: Make the TimeOut trigger only if both channels are inactive.
