Chatroom-Your Thoughts Please!

As you may have noticed, we've just implemented a much-requested chatroom. It is quite simple and has few fancy features, but for the moment we just want it to work!

 Anyway, have at it, and post your thoughts, feature requests, effusive thanks to the tech team, etc., right here. Thanks!

it can't be that hard

surely all they have to do is to completely remove the routine that does the kicking.

Since it does not punish you for profanity and such anyway why keep it?

Let us chat and self police for a while and see how it goes while they develop a more sophisticated kicking routine if such a thing is needed. They could publish or even make a discussion of the criteria for kicking people.

I want to be on the committee that discusses what and what is not profanity as I am an expert on such things ;-)

So please just turn off the fucking kicking machine!!!!

I agree, folks

I just got booted out twice for misbehaving myself.

Jonathan is trying various things in hopes of resolving this.

what Frankly said

I am not a major whiner, but come on, this is not working. If someone got $ to create a chatroom, they should make it work. Many of us try to do the best at our jobs, it would be nice if the people creating chatroom would or could too.

Is that really asking to much?

If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.

thats assuring..

that we all are in the same boat,but thats the thing anyway(a group of people called deadheads,swimming around life in a ship of fools.remember?)but that chat thing starts getting weird.i am apatient person wheni get the boot 50 times in one hour i try 50 times to get in again.but not everybody does and after going through this mess the third day,im also pretty bored pushing the button,but far more annoyed by the nice conversations that get cut and in the last consequence finished.and thats BAD,because alot of nice discussions were grounded and it ends up that the people dont take that thing for communication,but just for blabla..what else can u do in 30 secs.its a really big problem and i dont understand that the tech guys r not capable of dealing with it.if it continues,it will just slip away...and THAT WOULD BE SAD!

yup, we're all misbehavers on this bus

I just got kicked out for misbehaving myself.

I have conveyed the general discontent to the tech folks. So sorry for the aggravation.

I second that emotion ...

I am sure that there are a lot of technologically gifted Dheads that could offer a shimmer of light about what is going on ...

It was good to see that they fixed the issue about non-registered users entering the chat room. Thank you.

It seems to be an issue with folks that enter the chatroom, say a few words, maybe more, and then have to leave for what ever reason. No wrong or mis-behaving going on here. When they leave it appears that the system thinks they are still part of the chatroom. Which then results in a certain level of in-activity that the system recognizes. Hence, the way to fix the issue is to 'flush the toilet' and kick everyone out.
