Whatta y'all think?
Tell me what you like, dont like, etc and I'll see what we can hack into it.

Have already gotten requests for file transfers, and more colors...oh, and more smilies.

I'm open to color schemes too, as it seems the lighter text colors don't show up very well on the defaults.


More goodies being rolled out shortly!

:asian:
 
I love it

I wish you were there.

You are missing out.

:) :asian:



Add more colors and smiles, and maybe allow the same names from MT.

Name length is restricted.

:)
 
- Fix error messages so if you are missing a paramter to a command it tells you that instead of "This is not a valid command!"

- *Less* colors that burn the eyes

- I don't think this is feasible but it would be nice if there was a way to autocomplete names (like presssing tab in mIRC). Comunicaton goes better if we spell those nicknames right

- Is there a difference between:

/quit [message]
/exit [message]
/bye [message]

- I don't supose its possible to auto register when you log into the fourms?

- Can you connect to the chat in any way besides a browser web app?
 
Also, if any of you are having trouble using the chat feature, let us know here or in the MT Support forum.

One thing I'd like to see:

A button from the forum linking to the chatroom that will open it up in a new window.

Unless it's already set there and I'm just friggin' blind. :)

I'm going to work on a new button layout, and will have the 'Chat' link in there.

Will look into this....

I am looking into how to darken the background. I think that will open up more colors for use.

I'll see if theres a hack to do that. You can click on the name on the right to direct a public message, or click on a name in the 'chat' area to target a private message.

- Is there a difference between:

/quit [message]
/exit [message]
/bye [message]
I dont believe so.

- I don't supose its possible to auto register when you log into the fourms?
Not in the current configuration. I'm still looking into ways to tie it into the forum user database directly. Havent found a 'safe' way yet.

- Can you connect to the chat in any way besides a browser web app?
No. This chat room is a clientside application writen in php that links to a mysql backend. Its only accessible thru a web browser. I looked into running a private ICR chanel here, and it was too severe on the server. (IRC tends to be a server hog, AFAIK)

Add more colors and smiles, and maybe allow the same names from MT.
More smilies will be added slowly. Maybe a couple a week as I have time.

Name length is restricted.
We will look into that and see if we cant increase it....

It's a great feature Kaith, I've enjoyed using it.

BUT .........

I'd like to see a larger font, much too small for this nearsited person.

:)
 
If you are using Internet Explorer:
VIEW - Text Size - pick a bigger one. :)

I tried your suggestion. It makes no difference.

and it's an updated program.

:wah:
 
ok, youre right, and Im wrong. I just ran some tests and it seems 'locked' to a certain size.
What resolution are you running your system at?
I think its a CSS issue in the code, but I'll look into it.
 
- Some way to indicated away status. like Elfan|away or something like that.
 
Okay call me stupid but how do you get the damn thing to work! I go to the place, type in my name and password, press just chat and then it goes to a blank page with the time at the bottom before going straigh back to the password screen! what do I do :confused:
 
After running several tests, we have determined that due to proprietary coding, the AOL 'browser' is incompatable with the chatroom software. This is due to known issues with CSS and javascripts not working in AOLs browsers.

Please note - The problem lies with AOL, not the chatroom software.

In order to get access to the chatroom, please use one of the following browsers:

Supported Browsers:
Internet Explorer 4.x or greater (comes bundled with all windows pcs)

Netscape 6.x or greater. http://netscape.com

Mozilla 1.13 or greater. http://www.mozilla.org

Opera 5.x or greater. http://www.opera.com


We do not support the following:
AOL web browser
Compuserve web browser
Netscape 4.x or earlier
Internet Explorer 3.x or earlier

I apologize for the inconvenience.
:asian:
 
Note, you should be able to use any one of those browsers while using the AOL service, and they are available for free. There should be no cost to implement this work-around.

Since i very close to being almost completely computer illiterate, I will say, "Me like chatroom, very easy to work!"
 
Who's Chatting? feature is a no-go at this time. I tried for a few hours to get it to work, and each time it would crash both the forum and the chatroom. I'm going to do more research and try again later.
