Our very own Chatroom.
« on: February 07, 2009, 06:32:35 PM »
This is an announcement to introduce a Chatroom that is soon to be incorporated here, and this is a preview of how it looks and some tips on how to use it.

Some features:
    1. This is for the different channels which can be thought of as "rooms".
    2. This is to change how the room is displayed to you.
    3. This will reflect your own ID and the options available to you and is collapsible.
    4. This is another member's ID and the options you have for them, it is also collapsible by clicking on it.
    5. Clicking this will tell you which channel the member is in (how to find them).
    6. This will show you the commands if you want to enter them by hand.  You need to start with a forward slash immediately followed by the command.
    7. This will show the settings for you to personalise your preferences (it only affects you).
    8. This button shows a list of current members in the chatroom





Here are a couple of other things you may want to take note of:

This one is how you can see how many, if any, people are in the chatroom, and can be found at the top of the page.



and this one shows exactly who is in the chatroom and it is found at the bottom of the mainpage.



This is a big installation and will have to be done in maintenance mode in case it breaks the site.  It will probably be here tomorrow so keep an eye on the menu bar for a new link called "chat".

Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.

There is one important issue that you should all be aware of regarding the chatroom:

At the moment this site is set up so only senior staff can see member's IP addresses, and that is more for peace of mind for some members than it is any kind of security issue (some of us are know from elsewhere..). However, if you choose to chat, all staff will be able to see your IP temporarily.  This shouldn't really matter as it is only another 3 or 4 people and most of us are friends that trust each other anyhow.

But please be aware of this issue.


CMF.  I will attempt to get it integrated about 10am GMT (Sunday) so you should be tucked up in bed then anyhoo.  It should take about 20 minutes if all goes well and it is very quiet at that time so it shouldn't interupt much.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.

Cool, hopes this one doesn't have all the sound effect buttons, I likes buttons and am both easily distracted and easily amused.><

Everything went according to plan and we are now good to go.  Chat away and there is no need now to hijack threads, unless the mood takes you... :)
