    Looks like a great add-on so far. Props. Plan on donating / tweeting a thank you to you after we have a chance to actually give it a run and make sure it fulfills our needs (team hasn't gotten up yet heh). Update - Unfortunately the reason I have not submitted a 5 for the review is because there isn't (or I can't find) some sort of a universal chat function so that there is essentially a spot for a site-wide chat that anyone could see the latest history for and contribute to whenever they were online, allowing ongoing discussions of things that my not yet have materialized into a specific Space or topic etc. Nice work, though, I am sure it is very beneficial for other teams' needs. ;-)

    A wonderful free plugin, very easy to use. Seeing which users are online is a great sanity check for a Confluence administrator. Very simple method to provide in-app support as well as collaboration functionality. I hope that people will support free software and donate to the author (how much did you spend on beer last month?) so that support can continue to be provided and new features developed.

    Vendor response

    The first Donator ever - and the addon is live since two years ;) If somebody is searching for the donate button - you can find them in chat configuration page :). In previous times, Atlassian shows such links in the plugin listing too ;-)
