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!

Badger has made some good wishes

second them. Has been kinda frustrating-some of us spent parts of last weekend having a conversation after the other guys were already offline-as we kept missing each other, due to slow posts, or the "in the chatroom" list not showing accurately who had actually already exited the chat room, or other such wacky things.

phew

the chatroom is becoming a bit of test of patience right now. Its just me and the dog for the next 3 weeks and its fun to keep an eye out for buddies in the chat room while working on reports and such. but

You get kicked if you do not post every 2 minutes or so (but cheeky experiments today show that you can cuss as much as you like :-)...(you know who you are ;-)...)

Also no one knows who is in the chatroom without going there so we all keep missing each other..but cannot stay in there without being booted.

Any chance of a 'who's in the chat room' list in the sidebar or even better a pop up window so we can chat and do other stuff too?

How that happens is way beyond my tech understanding so I have no idea if such things are feasible and practical. But if they are then it would be nice ...

Ah HA

Just noticed that "misbehaving" also can mean being quiet for too long. Got kicked out twice when I went to the restroom-so must be some sort of timer thing.

Grey Type Syndrome

I think that this happens when a certain amount of time has passed since anyone has posted anything new to the chat. It may also be a clue that there really isn't anyone else there, despite who's listed. Likewise, posts from other users appearing in black are probably relatively recent. Anything that you post should be able to be seen by anyone else who goes there. I believe that each user's posts appear in red only to them.

Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

Have a couple of questions

Sometimes when I enter the chat room, the type of the ongoing conversation is grey-very faint, and sometimes is black like here in the threads. Does anybody know why this is? Also people seem to be signed into chatroom who are not there-for example I logged out about an hour ago, logged back in-checked the chatroom, and am no showing as visiting there twice. Again anybody know why? And last question is that when I type a message when type is grey-is this visible to the others, as I can see my words in red, but nobody answers.
