Folks, we have had numerous requests, since the last chat room perished, to set up a new one. A new one is under construction at dead.net/chat, and you're cordially invited to use it WITH THE CLEAR UNDERSTANDING that is is under development, not a finished product. If you already have a happy chat home elsewhere, that's great. If you're interested in helping us make one here that works for the people here, as contrasted to doing something just because it exists that way elsewhere, come on down. Tell us what's not working, tell us if there's a feature you'd like; no promises, but we'd like to hear about it anyway as we're certainly not omniscient, and we've already fixed numerous reported issues. Thanks. Again, dead.net/chat is the link.
The lack of a directly clickable link in this post, not to mention the lack of a link anywhere in the nav stack is hindering participation/adoption of this theoretically desired but obviously underutilized new/returning feature... (mollomed)
that copying and pasting a link would be such a challenge. But hey, it's clickable now. Thanks for the heads up.
we don't WANT it in the nav stack till it's finished, which it is certainly not now.
of taking instant gratification for granted, seems like asking anyone to expend any effort whatsoever is too much. I do understand keeping it out of production nav until formal release. And I can report all seems functional in Firefox/Fedora land. So happy to see it's not another flash-based solution. (mollomed)
is to build this pretty much from scratch to run in our environment so we're not at the mercy of things blowing up elsewhere in the universe quite so much. And of course the fine tech guy who's working on this has other demands on his time, but he keeps making incremental improvements based on requests and bug reports so far. We know it needs a good deal of refinement before we put the fanfare out there, but we also figured the people who had most asked for it back after the old one went kablooey were the ones to bang on the new one and tell us what was wrong, more or less, as well. Furthur!
That there is progress on this front. Happy chatting is now on the horizon!
First, I`m SO happy that this is being worked on. If memory serves, the GD Chat room is/was one of the oldest on the net. (not age of members, runtime) I look forward to its return. In Firefox, under winxp (you have money for my new OS, i dont, nor have i the expertise to do linux, same issue on my win7 comp, and in IE), i get a open chat window, with the input screen, and inputs seem to go in, but i dont see ANY chat. Message me if theres a suggestion that might help me. Thanks Gamedad
How about the chat room was in a small window on the main dead.net site, like i`ve seen twitter on some sites.Would that be cool?
Still not working. I know you are doing your best.Keep up the good work~
it sounds like you're typing your posts, they're showing up, but no one else is in the chat room to answer. Or are your posts not showing up in the chat window?
like Gamedad said (started not working as of yesterday)
you get to the chat room? I know, I'm dumb, but I can't find the button for it....
through all of these: Features Shows & Lyrics The Archives The Band Community Forums Store and still don't see a link to the chat room... Shouldn't there be a link to "chat" there? I know it's beta -- is it now available to all who have a user account?
RELEASE WE WILL PUT UP A BUTTON. THIS IS NOT THAT TIME. Use the link in the topic header above. Thank you.
who have a user account and wish to help us refine and debug it. If this is not you, wait till it's formally released. Thank you.
thanks, I just checked it and it's happening for me as well, so it's not an OS/browser issue. I'll pass this along.
In the header. See, told you I was dumb!
just missing it for the moment. Who among us has not done this... But as noted, this is so not ready for prime time yet so there's no point banging the drum for it and annoying people till it's ready.
When I re-arrange my downloads into Playlists, some of the songs e.g. "PLAYING IN THE BAND" do not click on to the next song. They terminate the playlist after completion, and do not move on ? Any ideas :-(
You'll probably have better luck if you ask here: Technical Discussions, because there are people with a lot more accumulated wisdom on this issue than I've got...
I know this is not the correct forum, but I'll bite. Try setting your mp3 player's playmode to queue, as opposed to all, intro, single or folder. I had to do that with my device once.
...chat just went Kablooey! Working one moment, not the next...
chat has yet again lost it's wheel.
...chat is still down.
I`ve missed dead.net chat for some time now, I hope it comes back. Love to all, Gamedad
It is one of several issues being addressed.
