    Chatbox

    We have to shut it down until we figure out why it's crashing the server when we are under heavy traffic. Sorry, but with any new additions to the software these things happen.. were working on a solution and we will keep you updated.

    Sorry, i know it sucks. (n)

    If we can't get that to work we will find another alternative.

    I'd give it A+ for idea but a C+ for functionality. It kept not refreshing for me so I'd have to leave and come back to get it to update.

    I wonder how much the posting went down due to the chatbox?

    based on the stats.. which are hard to read because of the growth the last month or so.. i would guestimate about 10-15% drop in posts..

    might want to look into something like this ...

    http://www.jwirc.com/chat.html

    if you look around i'm pretty sure there's a vbulletin-based application that is similar to the above and will default to forum usernames. the biggest advantage is you're no longer double dipping and hitting your server and database as often. but the flip side is you have to deal with running an IRC server.

    don't look for it's return anytime this week. Were looking at whether it's the proper solution for our architecture or if we need to go with something else. It's a bad week to be trying to find software bugs.... sorry, were working on it though.

    Thanks for the suggestion Bly. I'll have to demo it when I get home.
