Thread: Chat

  1. Default Chat

    Sorry I didn't really know where to put this idea so I'm sticking it here. Is there any place on this forum for a chat, in real time? If so where is it, and if not would it be possible to create one, as I think it would be very beneficial.

    Default You can chat in real time in two ways

    There is a slight delay with the Private Messages system (about 15 seconds) or you can use the public message system -- accessed through your UserCP -- which has a latency of less than 1.5 seconds.

    I'll show you. Stand by

    The simplest way to directly access the Chat function is to:

    1) Click on the member's name you want to chat with
    2) You will see three options:
    a. View public profile
    b. Send private message
    c. Send message by e-mail
    3) click on view public profile and you'll see the real-time chat window

    Default Chat is under-used herein

    With rare exceptions, most members don't spend more than a few moments online at a time, which is why the conversation-form of the chat doesn't really work that well here. The Moderators check in a dozen or more times during their duty-days, but they rarely have time to chat with anyone, such are the demands of keeping this forum performing in the way we have created.

    See the green and blue dots to the right of everyone's name? Green means the person is online.

    You can also "subscribe" to a thread - this will send you an e-mail whenever anyone posts in it.

    Default Look at the bottom of the page....

    At the bottom of the page (under the active threads) you will see the following headings:

    What's Going On?
    Currently Active Users: 56 (5 members and 51 guests)
    And below that are the names of the members online -- you can click on them to reach them directly.
