Live Chat is here

Postby admin » Sun Jul 27, 2008 3:44 pm

As promised, the forum upgrades were far from complete... here's another BIG one. There's a link at the top of the page to a "Live Chat" where you can post and have real time conversations.

When you open the live chat page at the top you'll see a list of most recent posts - this will update periodically, so you'll know whenever other's post on the forum. Just below that you'll see a list of who's viewing the chat page (and is available to chat with) and below that you'll see a place where you can type a message and submit. Your message will be displayed within seconds for other to read and respond to.

NOTE the chat is not for use to discuss anything worthwhile, it's more for an "I'm bored entertain me" type of communication. For example this is not the place to post wedding related questions that may benefit others. Why? Simple those posts are VERY temporary and will disappear within 25 chat posts, so as soon as they expire, no one else can benefit from their information - not to mention the fact that chat's aren't searchable. Basically the chat is where you sit around chatting out of boredom. You'll get updates on the chat page when new posts are added to the forum, so it's not a substitute for the forum, merely a place for you to communicate in real-time about things you won't care about 5 minutes later ;)

ENJOY!

LOL - I figured people would start to like the new forum. Change is always met with opposition, but in this case, it really is a big improvement (if you're willing to give it a try) ;)

FYI - depending on how the server copes with the traffic, we may have to disable the chat during certain peak hours. We'll have to play it by ear, so don't panic if the chat is closed randomly.
