Update 7th Dec 2009: phpBB chat has been replaced with IRC chat!
Join us on:
The chat button is now a Mibbit client for the IRC.
Note for context: the following posts follow the original post where the phpBB chat was added!
Awesome chat app! Thanks Rich
Is there a client anywhere for this Ajax chat thingy? I'd rather not have my browser running constantly.
There's no client other than the popup window, sorry.
Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.
Link isn't there for me because I'm using another skin.
add the chat to the online bar in construct
If you log into chat and find that you're unable to post, that's because of the new spam filter Ash has put on the board. You will need to first make a post on the forum too pass the spam filter.
Go ahead and post in the following thread if you don't have any other posts you need to make right now:
You will only need to pass the spam filter once.
Once? What about people with dynamic IPs, like myself?
Then you will have to suffer under the crushing weight of having to type a word more than one time.
(I wrote that post before I knew you would have to do the confirmation each time your IP changed, sorry )
I know it might be annoying but so far it seems to have stemmed the flow of spambots - so if you don't mind typing in one word from time to time - it's saving us a lot of clean-up work to prevent spambots overrunning the forum!
Um somethings wrong again.
edit nevermind ff pudate must have screwed me
Is it me or does FF just not like the chat?
Edit nope antispam strikes again
Oh well Ill just post here as its the quickest way to get back in
Since the website upgrade the chat has stopped working. (Thanks Aeal for noticing)
I think we may as well get rid of it and use an IRC channel, since the old phpBB chat seemed to burn a lot of server bandwidth and was slow and kept saying 'Error: connection status 0'.
Is anyone already running an IRC chat? I can put links to an "official" channel in the chat window.
