Mythic Devs (aka idiots) - there is enough wrong with the game that needs fixing that you don't need to create more.
If you've ever worked in software development you know, when you fix one bug, another will undoubtedly pop up.
It's just the nature of the beast.

There is no such thing as a bug free MMO.

change alpha from 0 to 100%, then hit apply
then change 100% to 0% and hit apply again.

Window will now fade UNTIL you zone. As soon as you zone to a new location (eg. entering a wz, new planet, etc), you have to redo these steps..

Not the entire problem. The text still never fades at all. Anyway, apparently they know it's an issue.

"But we play at entirely different times."
"Doesn't matter. Our metrics will show higher populations."

Unlcheck Chat Fade. Hit Apply. Recheck Chat Fade. Hit Apply.

Combined with the above method the Chat window will work as normal again, text and all, at least until you zone.

Hi there folks,

As Blackavaar stated above, the Chat Window forgetting to fade away properly was acknowledged and posted on on the Known Issues first thing yesterday. It's currently slated to be fixed with Game Update 2.2.3.

When is 2.2.3? Next scheduled maintenance? This bug is seriously annoying.

I think we'll all live until it's fixed. Somehow.

Good thing it still has no effect on gameplay what so ever.
