Testing Theme Park Review Chat Mod

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!


I'm in the process of seeing which of several 'chat mods' could work for having a live chat on the boards. I've set up a test mod right now, which should work if you click on this link:




I'm looking for the following feedback:


Does this chat mod lag?

How is it effecting the rest of the boards?

What errors are you having?

Do you like this mod and the idea of having a live chat?


Ok, so far that's it...see you in the chat room and please give us as much feecback as possible. If this chat mod sucks, please tell us!!!

Great to see the Chatroom up. I'm surprised you didn't go for a java type chatroom, this type there is a bit of a delay when you post a message since the webpage keeps refreshing. Other then that, it's fine.


Dial Up users might have difficulties since the webpage needs to refresh everytime

Ok, so I've just updated the version of the chat to a Java chat room. There is a link Above (look up) that says "chat".




Let us know what you think.

This chat mod will also allow you to see who is chatting.


On the front page under "Who is Online" you can get a list of everyone chatting.


While you are in the chatroom you can also invite people by using this command:


/invite robbalvey


That will send a PM to username "robbalvey" to come in and join that chat.


What do you all think?

^ Hmm...not sure if it's a personal option or not, but I know when I get a PM, I get a little window that says "You have a PM...do you want to read it in this window?"


Although I know if I have my pop-up blocker on, I don't get those.

Yay!!! no Pop ups!! I hate pop ups and I like how you decided not to have any on this site. I wish more people would do the same. But the chat room looks cool man! Too bad the only computer i have access to is at work, and they dont exactly like people doing other things like that with the computer. Thats why I havent been posting in a while!

I'm not sure if I helped test of the old or new chat mod. It bugged me that it has a timeout feature if you don't say anything for, I think, 20 minutes. Then again it helps keep trolls and lurkers out. In my case I couldn't add anything to the conversation so that's why I timed out.

Ok everyone,


So for the most part, the chat room is DONE!!!


I've updated the color scheme to match the fourms as close as possible. I've updated the Information and About screens.


I've changed some of the smiley codes to make them easier to use.


Anything else?


Please give me as much feedback as possible...so unles anyone has any negative feedback...the chat room is OPEN!!!!!
