    I was MIA for a while just curious as to what happened to the chat feature?

    It was taken down temporarily while Steve puts the old system back into place.

    I wonder if the chat plugin was actually the cause or if Steve is simply searching for something better while he goes through this exercise. I get the sense the cause is unknown but that Steve was never completely happy with that plugin... and that while he's at it he might as well find a replacement. Just a suspicion...

    I figured out what the hackers did and how they did it and we are putting steps into place to keep it from happening again.

    We should do a poll on here, what do people like, the current chat system or the old chat system?

    On the new chat system I liked the popout feature, the ability to colour text, the ability to start private chat rooms, and the ability to have individual chats (on the bar ... without starting a separate chat room). I think it hands-down trumped the old chat system except for one thing -- it has a session timeout of some sort that comes into place if you use the chat in pop-out mode and you do not refresh your browser for some time. When it times out you have to refresh a GMTC window to make chat work again ... and you lose the displayed chat history when you do it.

    I think the default chat room is now as empty as it is because the new system doesn't dump people into the default room, anymore.

    X2 on what surreal said that time out drives me up the ******* wall now if we can keep the knew one and all the cool featurs and get rid of the time out then it would be heaven

    Haha...I think it is a sense of accomplishment for them. Almost like they solved the puzzle. I think they do it just to see if they can do it.

    Why does a person climb a mountain? Why do Chevy truck owners run through the puddle , rather than around it? . Does a tree make a sound when falling if there is no one there to hear it? Chicken crossing the road?:rofl:
