Chat updates

Postby admin » Fri Aug 08, 2008 6:59 am

All, we had a fun chat last night with LOTS of people online all at once.

A few people pointed out that it was hard to track the conversation(s) because so many people were typing all at once. The request was made to move the chat author's name over to the left-hand side of the chat message (even though it is opposite of the rest of the forum) so you could quickly read the poster name followed by what they were saying and not have to jump around with your eyes as much. Also to help further distinguish multiple chat messages all at once, you will now see your own chat messages in bold text. Last I have added the option to let you delete your own chat messages. Although it's important to note that deleting a chat message doesn't remove it from the view of other people who have already viewed/downloaded that message. It just prevents new people who join the chat from seeing the message when they first open the page.

Hopefully this re-organization will help future mega-chats like the one we had last night.

Enjoy! :hi:
