Question HamChat

Well, it's been a while since the new chat was installed into the site. What do you think? Personally, I didn't like it much as first, but it is much easier to notice and easier to talk then the old chat.

I don't like not being able to have multiple hamumu pages open without the chat getting messed up. And it lacks smilies.
Other than that, I like it.

Hm, let's see... I can't open it in a pop-up window like the old chat, it kicks me at random times or when I switch tabs, there's a rather short character limit, the font randomly changes, there are no smilies, no alerts when my name is typed, chat-unrelated messages that can't be turned off and make the same sound as new chat messages, no text colours to tell people apart, no ignore function, no special symbols (not even a degrees symbol or euro sign), text is very hard to copy as ctrl+something combinations de-highlight it instead of doing anything, there's no way to tell if someone is actually using the chat as everyone who only logs in for other purposes also appears on it (or sometimes doesn't, as it seems to randomly decide whether or not to display someone who entered), and there's also this thing about messages not appearing at the precise time they are sent if multiple are sent close to one another, but all of those messages appearing at the same time, with some delay and a very loud noise; especially noticable when there's some more activity going on. And speaking of loud noises, mass zombie-dying when a single person leaves due to lag :| That said, I currently unfortunately don't see any way in which this HamChat is any sort of advantage over the old one :\ The /roll functions are fun, but that's about it.

roflol, SP. what both of them said. also: you can't use the forum and chat at the same time. and it seems that not every member whos here is displayed on there for an odd reason.

You don't really need to sign in, that's just it's generic "An error happened" message, which really ought to be more specific.

I like the hamchat, it's just a bit featureless, not to mention the notorious signing-into-your-dumb-account-to-chat-ing. I've said this countless times, but I liked how with the old chats, if someone joined, it was because they wanted to chat.

I like this chat because it lets me talk to my hamumu friends. Sure, the last one had more funky features, but this does its job. Should I remind you of the mass chatcides? The only thing I do not like is how it is on all pages and not on a separate window, and that still is okay when you get used to it.

I think it's good in theory - a chat that you're always in, to make people talk more. But in practice, yeah, too buggy.

I was thinking a couple of days ago, it could work if there was a 'Pop out' button on it, which opens chat in a separate window, and stops chat appearing on regular pages. Don't know how easy that would be to add in, but it would solve some of the problems.
