Title: Chat Added!
Post by: mattyh on July 30, 2007, 01:20:21 AM
We have just gone live with a chat server at www.swpocketmodels.com/forum/chat/ (http://www.swpocketmodels.com/forum/chat/)! It uses the login information from these forums so if you are logged into the forums already, it will not ask you for a username/password.  Otherwise, use the same username and password you use for these forums.

We are currently working on integrating the chat even further into the forums.  Also, the chat has not yet been changed from the default look, but we hope to give it a star wars theme in the near future (the other features of the site are a higher priority at the moment).


UPDATE 9/16 - There is now a standalone client available in the Downloads (http://www.swpocketmodels.com/downloads.php) section

The chat is awesome!

One weird thing, though.  When it displays the time on any time ending in 8 it replaces the time with the smiley wearing glasses.  This is because when the 8 and ) are next to one another (as at the end of the time display) the chat reads it as 8)

Also I've noticed I've been booted outta chat a couple times...don't know why. Might be my connection but just wanted to make you aware.

Is there a way to use our avatars in the chat?
Title: Re: Chat Added!
Post by: mattyh on July 30, 2007, 07:25:09 PM
I noticed this and it should be fixed now if you relog into the chat client. As for disconnects, I'm not sure, I have yet to be disconnected when I'm using it, but if I hear of it happening repeatedly for multiple people I'll try to trace the issue.

There is no way to use your avatars in the chat at this time.  I'm not sure that it will be possible in the future, either.

Unfortunately, on my Windows ME machine, whenever I bring up the chat I can't use any other browser windows.  So I can't go back and forth between the forums and chat without logging off chat.   :(

Make another room - It's plenty easy :)

Actually, im not sure we need another room. Usually if we get into serious trade talk, we just use the chat's internal private messaging. Otherwise, its all fun and games. yall who dont come in thier, dont know the fun you miss sometimes...lol.

I'm surprised people remember anything these days.  My short term memory works, my longterm memory is hosed.  The only problem with that is my short term memory only lasts for a week!  :o

i think alot of it is how much you party when you were younger. I would get caught off guard when i would go to a MtG tourny, see a bunch of 18-21 year olds on a Saturday night playing Magic. Id thinkm "When i was there age, Saturday night was BUZZ night. I also notice these cards are usually smart....lol.

Dang, sorry to hear that porp. So basically your alot like me. Write notes to yourself? Gotta keep a clean house so things can be found? Gotta put things like, wallet, keys, watch together in a pile someplace where you see it without looking. Sucks man.... :(

Yep. I write tons of stuff down. That and voice memos. I'm still somewhat bachelor-messy (to my wifes chagrine), but that's habit so things tend to wind up in the same places anyways. But wallet, keys, etc... always in a big pile right where I'll hurt myself if I don't intentionally avoid them (like on my pillow, in my shoe, etc). I love message boards, online games, etc because everything is written down infront of me; it's just a matter of finding it. I feel your pain bro. We're buds! We've gotta stay united!
...
United against what, I don't really recall. But we're united none-the-less!

What is up people, if you are just chilling online, come bounce into the chat room for some good discussions or for just hanging around.  GaryL, Greenosaur, myself and sometimes Desdinova, LS100 and others are in there having a blast.  So if you're online, come on down to the chat room

Lets face it! The community has hit a down. We know its cause of the holidays, and the delayed shipping times for GA (delayed 3 times grr! ::)  ), But we want this community to come back alive! So feel free to jump into chat, hit us up for questions, comments, trade offers, whatever!

 Bring Back The Community!!

Git-R-Dun!

Anyone still use the chat?
Title: Re: Chat Added!
Post by: timbo7575 on October 20, 2008, 07:30:12 AM
i occasionally do, but im at work most of the time im online and it calls me away from my desk at the most random of moments, and its hard to do it real time since i work on projects all day.

Some days i could just chill all day on chat, others im swamped... it lends to just not logging in to chat unless there is a big discussion going on with several people involved, where my nonconversing (if i get busy) won't hurt it too much

When Greeny was on here during the summer almost every day, we would shoot the breeze in chat a bit more frequently...

Post by: slightlyiffy on October 20, 2008, 12:03:26 PM

I still occasionally go into chat - partly to shoot the breeze & partly to avoid 50million PM's between me & someone I am trading with - the only problem is that I am usually asleep in bed by the time u guys get onto the internet [+8 hours here :)]
