Re: Chat in beta test


Thanks for the "cool addition" bit, freesprite, but I'm sure there must be something that would make you moan. For instance, I was on a different website yesterday and kept trying to scroll to the top, but it kept jumping back down to the bottom so I couldn't click on a link to go anywhere else on their site without typing in a direct URL. emoticon

It can be moved to the other side, Pat. You need to open the box, then click on the 4 way directional arrows and drag it.

Re: Chat in beta test


True, but once you minimize it again, it goes right back to the bottom right corner. For those who have opted not to use the "Friends" feature we came out with last year, and who still choose not to use it now that we have this new feature, I can understand why they wouldn't want the chat tab on their screen all the time.

Re:


But it's minimised small. It would only be in the way if forum width defaulted to screen size.

Re: Chat in beta test


True, we did make it as small as possible while still serving its purpose, although it might also help if we move it away from the scrollbar a bit, to prevent clicking on it accidentally. That hasn't happened to me, but I like to use my mouse wheel, or when I want to scroll quickly, I click on the track of the scrollbar instead of the arrows.

Edit: I guess the main point here is that different people like to use the internet in different ways, and while I would like to provide many features for people to use, I also don't want to force them on people who don't want them. Some people love the new feature, some may hate it, and others may be indifferent, or appreciate having a quick way to contact someone in the event of an emergency. It certainly came in handy when I was away for the day while staff were testing it and PR needed to contact a global admin to help one of our members, and it could help many board owners in this respect, too. emoticon

Re:


Pat: Would it help if the chat would minimize on the left side of the window so it doesn't interfere with the scrollbar? I totally understand that you would like to opt out of the chat function, but on the other hand, it's very handy to use as quick connection with people.
