Ok folks. We have our very own chat room now. This chat room is integrated into the site software. This means that you DO NOT have to download any software for it. Just click on the CHAT ROOM link found at the top/right on the tool bar. Just click on that and it will load (if your on dial up it may take a bit) and sign you in as who ever you are on Yesfans. So that means you must be a member of the site to get in.
You do have to be logged into the site before you try to go in, so I am told anyways.
At this point I have not seen any issues with the chat room. I do not know if it works on Webtv or not. I would assume you have to have a pretty up to date browser also.
Let me know if you have any issues.

This is so kool! Am trying it right now. I've always thought that AOL chat is too much hassle. This way everybody can chat and no additional software is needed to be installed. Thanx Tim!

Right now it is ONLY avail via the style set#7. I will load it into the others sometime today. To get to style set #7, go to the bottom of the site pages, lower left, there is a small drop down box. Click on that and selete #7. Then it will appears on the tool bar at the top. The old AOLHELL will go away soon if all goes well with this chat room.

I loaded it and just got a blank screen with blue sky-cloudery background. Looks like a Macromedia flash thing. Clicked 'refresh' with same results. But then, I have dial up here at home. Will try it at work today w/hi speed connection. But wow thanks for the change! Can't wait to try it out.

I am on dial up at home and I get the blue sceen for a few minutes then it comes up. When you first click on the link you should see a screen that says LOADING this and loading that. Then it will flip over to a screen. Again on dial up this all can take a good 3-4 min to get in.

Had a nice chat this morning from work with someone from Down Under. I will try from home to see if it works too.

I see one more reason to be distracted from my daily work. My boss won't like it.

I don't think the posts will drop altogether..this is new right now, so everyone was checking it out...I prefer message boards, to chat though, I can think through and keep up better...it is also better for thos of us who has some short-term memory loss to be able to go back & look at things...I have no clue why I have short them memory loss though...I may have at one time, but I forgot...lol :bonghitte

The chat room is now avail from ANY style set. So you can go back to what ever one you liked using. The old chat link is gone. All sched chats, Weds at 8:30 pm eastern standard time, USA, and Sat at 10 am est time are still the same.

All I'm seeing is a blue splash screen. I don't know what it is with me and the Yesfans chat rooms not working right. I even shut down zone alarm with no help.
Oh well, great addition to the site Tim.

Yup, that happens sometimes. I've also experienced getting automatically logged out from the chatroom AND Yesfans.

That's what the exterminatorss always say!

Bugs will be bugs. It worked pretty well while I was there, jut the PM thing was a problem.

It's nice though Tim, good work!

Ok chat is back. The program did not die. The database that it was partly in, DIED! I found it and ran a repair on it and now it is working for me. For how long? Who the hell knows. This is just part of computers. The fancier it gets, the easier it comes down. Sorry folks! I will be late for work again tommorrow, it's LATE!

Well, I just tried it out - could see 17 people there, but didn't see anything THEY were saying, just what I typed.

Apparently there's still some problem somewhere, either the software isn't working properly, or there's something on my end that's necessary for successful running.

Any clues, Tim?

LOL I was in chat yesterday evening and then I logged out and went to sleep. Today I wanted to log in the chat but it said another member with the same ID and password is already there and I can't get in. Umgy, if you're reading this, get out of the chatroom already so I could join! :lmao:

The anti-do-anything-not-work-related software stops me from visiting now that there is a chat integrated in the site. Drag for me, I reckon.

After a few hours poking I found the issues with the chat. When the database went down it wiped out some code I kept over looking.

1yesfan
11-27-2004, 12:43 AM
Please keep in mind that you have seen DATABASE ERROR mess here before, and when the site gets slow and shuts off till the resources it is requesting of the server have been processed, 97% of the time those do not hurt the site. It's the other 3% that could! These said issue will not go away until we are on a dedicated server!

It did the same with me Umgy. Last time I staid in the room for 20 mn, it kicked me out 3 times.

I've been on from home and work, all with no problems.

I have a pop up blocker Gary. I don't know if it's the same thing that you are referring to. But mine is turned off, FWIW.

I think that most of the time many folks have issues at this site because of the way their connection is set up, what security features may be enabled on them.

The new YF chat is the only chat program that I could use at work. The other ones (AIM, Java, Yahoo Messenger) are blocked by our firewall. Of course at home I could install any software. I hope my sysadmin at work won't discover this little loophole in their firewall system hehehe.
