NEW CHAT 3-14-11
« on: March 14, 2011, 06:29:57 PM »
I've set up yet another chat room, that maybe more people can use because it runs off Java instead of Flash.
I know only about three of you even know what that is, but  :laf:

Anyway it currently requires a password. Which hopefully keeps some of the off the street riff raff out.

It's not integrated with the forums, but if it flys...later I can set it up so that everyone registers a username and password to get in.
Hows that going to work?
You register to use the chat, it'll take your username, password and email address and build you a profile.
It' emails you a confirmation link to make sure you entered a legitimate address, and once you click the link emailed to you, your account is activated, and your username owned by you.
(Again were not doing this as of yet)

There is NOT currently anything on the forums showing how many or who is chatting.
It is available but I have to up my plan with the company to get that script and some other features. Which runs $15.00 a month. Not a bad price but I'm going to have to see a lot of interest in the thing before I let another forum toy nickle and dime me to death.

The same link out there gets you to the new chat, I just changed it. Or you can click HERE

Again, you need a password right now or you dont get in. Pass is finschat

Check it out, give me some feedback.

I down loaded the latest version of Java then went to chat entered my screen name then went to the chat room then a little window popped up asking for the password I entered it then it looked like a chat room my name on the left but when I typed and entered there were no words  :wo: I took the little pointer thingy put it on the left side of the chat window held the left button down on the mouse and went to the right it slid my name to the left side of the chat window and I could see the words I typed

  Jim, I loved the old chat and can be counted on to help pay for the use of a new chat, but $15/month seems a mite steep.  Will this new one show us when someone is in there?  If not it's pretty much useless.  I managed to get in to this one but without Bills knowledge I'd have been screwed :whew:.

 :alscalls: Ok...first of all it only took me and hour and 15 minutes to figure what in the sam hill you guys were talking about.  :doh2:

But I translated it, and got er. :innocentwhistle: :laf:
Basically the list of users was bigger then actual chat window, so the chat window appeared to be covered.
Bill when you did your little draggy slide thing, you basically expanded the chat window...and thats actually what those little arrows are for  :eyebrownod:

So, I've eliminated the necessity of users customizing the chat panel to your own personal likings by slapping a default size and layout on it. :shrug: That should eliminate any further confusion.
I just thought some of you would like to be able to move things around and adjust it to suit your needs or preferences.


Yes the chat has a script that can be placed on the forums letting people know how many or who is in there chatting at any givin time.
As mentioned in my first post;
There is NOT currently anything on the forums showing how many or who is chatting.
It is available but I have to up my plan with the company to get that script and some other features. Which runs $15.00 a month. Not a bad price but I'm going to have to see a lot of interest in the thing before I let another forum toy nickle and dime me to death.

Well you ain't there now.  Jim did fix the page so I can see my words though.  Will this new chat remember our settings so we don't have to hit options a kabillion times each time we enter. :whew:

As long as you login with the same name yes. If you change your name it doesnt know that you changed your name and therefore it doesnt know who you are or what your settings were.

So that was you!  I kept sitting here at my computer talking back when I would see you post, but you wouldn't answer.  You just kept talking to yourself.
