    can we have somewhere on the board an indication if people are in the chat? that way if you are browsing the boards and see that people are chatting, you might want to join in. I'm not talking on the home page, I'm talking like a header or something so it shows up on most, if not all pages.

    :)

    Are people still chatting? Every time I have a chance to, I'm all by myself.:(
    I never seem to see anyone in there anymore. Could just be me though. People seem to avoid me. I know I seem smart and unreachable but really I'm just like y'all.:p

    I know I'm only a Jr. member, but I have tried to go into the "Chat Room" and don't have rights. I would much rather have real time conversations. Did I do something wrong in registration?

    Only users with "x" amount of posts or subscribed can get in there. It helps prevent users from signing up and spamming the chat.

    Let it be known that Liz lures people into the chatroom with promises of cupcakes and then she doesn't share.

    You know what the problem is? No one goes IN the chat. lol Think about it. If I look and see no one in there, I don't go in. Most, if not all of us do that. But if one of us doesn't go in there first, and just hangs in there for a few, no one will ever be in there to make others jump in. lol

    I was asked to create a universal chat indicitor on the site that shows the users in the chat somewhere in the header. I will never add that as it isn't really header information. I may add a simple location though that simply states if anyone is in the chat. It won't show names or any of the fancy stuff. Just a "green light" saying the chat is actively being used. That won't be done today, but I may consider adding something like that.

    oooh, green light is good. I don't care to know who is in the chat, just that soemone is in it. And it could be a footer instead. That's always an option.

    I usually open it in a window and let it sit for a bit. Sometimes people come in, sometimes they don't.

    Yeah I sit in there and talk to myself alot....it gets lonely being in there at 11pm PST, everyone else is crashed out.
    On occasion I wander in because someone is in there and they are really off doing laundry or something because tyhey never notice me.

    Ok, I went ahead and added a chat count to the navbar, which is displayed everywhere. Now you and everyone else will know how many users are in chat at any given time. :)

    I don't know your password either. You can reset your password though in the control panel.

    I just tried to get into chat because of all the talk about it, and was informed that my pw or username was invalid. So, I go ahead and put in a request for a new pw, everything goes through, I sign into HC itself and then try the chat again, and I still get the invalid user/pw pop-up...
