Title: The Chat Room
Post by: WonderlandAlli on December 04, 2009, 11:18:54 pm
If you experience technical difficulties of any kind with the chat, please post them here. Please be detailed if possible. I'd like to keep chat related problems in one place so that if we find a post a solution it can be read by others that may have the same problem.

Wonky Badger notes:
If you experience any more problems with the chat, please also state the approximate time (and time zone), so that I know where to look in the logs timewise when troubleshooting.

I kept losing my internet connection tonight. I don't know what was going on but I heard a lot of sirens during that time so I can only think someone hit a pole somewhere and messed it up. (We have unusually icy roads tonight).

I noticed that people's names no longer showed up when I logged in, and after I sat there for a few minutes assuming I must be alone now (people like Fig and Monkey Mind had been in previously) I got a random message that Monkey Mind had timed out. I don't know if he actually left or if I was just not seeing him anymore, but I thought it was strange I'd get a time out message. If he left I shouldn't have had such a thing so I can only wonder if our connections weren't meeting up.

Just posting this because it was so odd, we'll see if others have similar experiences with not seeing anyone in the room but then seeing that someone timed out, when previously they did see someone present.

If you close the browser without clicking on "Log Out" button, I think your shadow is left in the chat room...

PS I took the liberty to copy Wonky's post content into the first topic post, so that it's the first topic everyone reads.

This might be a function of when I am logging in, but it seems to me like there is a lot less traffic in the Chat. When is the chat most lively/ populated?
