New Chat Function
I have added a new chat function to "all" forums.
You can now chat in all threads. New posts made by other people will automatically pop up on your screen without any need to reload the page. This means that you can keep a thread open and chat with one or more people in it. The thread will check for new posts every 3 seconds and if anyone posted something new it will automatically appear on your screen. Everything posted becomes regular posts and can be viewed at a later time just like any other post you make.
The chat function has a 3 second delay at the moment. This delay might be increased or decreases to optimize prestanda as the times goes by. I chose to set it to 3 seconds to keep a near real time chat feeling while still reducing the server load considerable compared to if there was no delay.
A low number of forums are excempted from this feature including the competition and thoughts and suggestions forum.
Hope you all will enjoy being able to cmmunicate with eachother faster and with more ease.
report any problems you may experince to me.
I am not sure if this feature will work on all mobile devices but I think it should.Do as I say. Not as I do.

Sounds like a fun feature

You are also available to click the
"Click "Reload" to fetch new posts without leaving the page. " button to check for new posts without having to reload the page. This is a lot quicker than reloading the page and can save a lot of hassel on slow connections. To manually click works in all forums.Do as I say. Not as I do.

Text lags behind in new thread/reply windows ...
I've noticed since these changes were made that when I type in a new thread or reply window, I'm always typing faster than it takes the text to appear in the window. It lags a bit behind. Previously, the characters appeared the moment I struck them on the keyboard. Something seems a bit out of synch. Also, when I backspace, it seems to take forever, for the same reason. This is the only forum on which I find this happening, and it began only after the new format came into being. If I type several words rapidly in succession, it can take up to a full second before they appear in the window. It feels like my cursor is just limping along.
Any suggestions on how to correct this?

I will have to look into that but the changes made should not be able to affect that. The letters are put into the window locally on your computer. It is only after you press send it starts interacting with the changes server side. I will look into and see if there might be any setting on the server or in your browser that might be causing it. DO you mind telling me which browser you are using. Also what is your connection speed and how much ram does your computer have.Do as I say. Not as I do.

Curious as to why as of 12:53 pm central time, there's only 1 post listed in the new posts section. Generally there's a page full. Does this have something to do with the latest changes and if so, where can I go to get a list of the most recent posts?

Sorry, there are no new posts to view.
You may search for posts updated during the previous 24 hours, here?
Same message I get every time I come here. I click on the "here" and then get this message: This forum requires that you wait 10 seconds between searches. Please try again in 3 seconds.
I spend more time reading messages than I do posts.
