How does the chat work?
I clicked on 'Chat Options' but what's supposed to happen?
I see Set message and status, what in the heck does that mean?

I'm obviously a dinosaur when it comes the chat, chat rooms, chat lines or whatever they are called.

Is it something like twitter or facebook?

When in trouble or in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout

I'm beginning to wonder the same thing. I haven't had a person talk to me yet 🙁

So is it going to be a keeper?

That makes sense. I thought somebody wanted to talk to me 🙁 I work alone all day, I am so lonely 😉

That chime is telling you that another member/user has come on line. I think.
On my screen anyway, the bottom right has a little box that says 'Online users. Click that box and it shows a list of users now online.

Not sure if this has anything to do with the new chat program, but I keep hearing a chime sound on my computer when I am logged in to this forum. The chime sounds exactly like the one you hear when you go to chat options and push the test audio button. I hear it every few minutes or so. Not always consistent. Nothing on my screen indicates that someone is trying to chat with me.

Hey Whip,

I really like the new chat - you're so awesome and we really do that you for keeping this forum up and running for us... I guess I probably had better send you something to help with the cost of keeping it going :cheer:

Later,
David

I didn't change the quick reply, but I did clear the cache. Possibly it was never working correctly before?

Looks somehow like Facebook.
You also changed the Quick reply option a bit, right?

You should see a new chat bar at the bottom of your screen. Let me know how it works. There are some formatting issues, but I want to make sure it's a keeper before I dig into the code and fix it.
