Chat tab locking

Is there any update coming to lock the chat tabs? Or somehow hide the "x" and "+" button from chat.

    I never knew that this was an issue requiring any update.

    I am a very casual player.

    I'd be lucky to hide that 'X' there, and also to prevent my mini map from changing its size. It happens so often that when I want to pan the visible part of the minimap that I resize it instead. But I guess that won't appear on the todo lists for ANet after prioritizing the issues.

    Praise Joko! And Bangar, we need to talk!

    Always amazed this was never addressed, along with a default setting for when you need to recreate the tab.

    Has been an issue since the beginning, I myself requested this several times, but the devs who don't play as often and extensive as their player base don't seem to acknowledge the problem nor understand the issue. Hence, nothing has been done about it to date.

    Would also want to see a way to lock changing name of tabs by accident when one use the submenu to filter things in log (tab) or when one need to filter out NPC conversation in the general tab (where all map/say and tell is in one place). Too many time during a fight when one want to check something I don't get out of tab mode (for which keep focus on naming a tab) and change name in tab instead of controlling my PC.

    Have you tried setting up additional channels for specific purposes rather than messing around with settings every time?

    If we want ANet to step up their game, then we must step up ours.

    Locking the size of the minimap would be also good, also to swap chat channel tabs.
