Sharing single public charging station (it had a long cord): I was going to leave a note saying "if green light flashing unplug me and help yourself", but realized the alarm would go off.

Workaround?

There's an option to disable that, it's some where in the vehicle options menu. I don't remember exactly where.

Also you want the note to say "If the green light is steady I'm charged. Unplug me and help yourself."

On the Gen 1, the full charge indicator is a flashing light.

OK Chevy - get your act together and set a standard for all your EVs.

It seems like they were trying to change the standard because people were confused by the Gen 1's lights. Of course, now there's even more confusion...

Not gonna happen now. Some EVs (like Tesla and BMW I3) don't even indicate charging status after some time passes (unless owner/keyfob) is nearby. All public charging stations should have their own charging indicators, and it is best to use them to determine whether a vehicle is charging or not.

I like the charge magnets, but wish they came in the form of a sticker for the inside of the charge port door. That way, they would be visible while charging without having to mount them each time.

Just make one. get a blank sticker (a "Hello, my name is...." works), tape it to a 8x11 piece of paper, send it through the printer, add a layer of packing tape for weather resistance, snip with some scissors, and BAM!!! You've got a sticker.
