Ad Astra Chat now available

17 posts in this topic

Thanks largely to the awesomeness that is Stormerider, we now have a chat using his code. StormChat is set up at:

http://forums.adastr...ndex.php?/chat/

Please use your FORUM username/password, not your archive user/pass. It's tied to the forums, and should have your avatar from the forums show up, as well.

We have one public room, and you can open private chat rooms at your leisure. If you run into any bugs, please open up a ticket at the support site (http://support.adastrafanfic.com).

Thanks!

Some people are reporting that they're not seeing any response from the server.  That seems to be a one-time thing, as the cookies are being delivered.  Log out, close the browser window/tab, and then log back in and see if that doesn't fix it.

If it doesn't, let me know by opening a ticket at the support site.

The Forum Updates topic seemed to be locked, so I thought I'd mention it here since I can't really find a better place...

Just wanted to say I really appreciate the upgrade to the latest software.  Reason being, I was REALLY having a lot of trouble in the previous version with Ctrl + I messing up my browser and opening unwanted windows instead of actually doing what it was supposed to.  Now it works properly, which really speeds up my typing. :D

Oh, I didn't even know this was an issue.  No one raised a support ticket for it.  The update had been out for over three months.  Had I known, I would've moved it up earlier.

I had assumed there was nothing that could be done about it, so I didn't bother because I didn't want to seem like I was harping over things that no one could help. ;)

For stuff like that, always report it.  I'm a charter member for Simple Machines and I can file bugs on our behalf so they can fix them in a later release.

We've had the chat available now for over a week.  Have you guys had a chance to take a look and get a feel for it?

Let me know if you have any problems.

Weird.  I can see you chatting.  I saw both 'heys.'

Yeah, but I don't see what I type when I log on, only after I quit and log back in.

That sounds like a cookie issue.  It's discussed at the support site.

Chat server is showing errors since our upgrade.  I've reported it to the developer.

Since we've moved over to the IPB software, our chat room looks a little different. There are quite a few changes:

- No more word wars.

- No more chat transcripts.

- No more ability to post large blocks of texts for snippets.
