I know the chat is only in beta, but the people in the chat happen to log out all the time due to lag of the chat and we're not on the bottom end. o_o. Can some one fix it?

This place is getting a lot of negative press lately. Something like this should be dealt with behind closed doors rather than dealt with in the public. Since it is only the staff that can deal with this, it should be discussed among you and them.

Suggestions

Or add your thoughts to one of the many, many threads that already exist on this matter.

I think we need to remember that it is one thing at a time. Chat is functionable. Focus on the positives.

Timing people out who are not active for a bit prevents a constant pinging of the server from your machine.

If you're activily chatting...it's a non-issue.

Umm, not usre if Mav was just saying in general we need a new
chat system, or that there actually is a current problem with the
chat, that is it shows everyone logged in at the top, than a bunch
of convo and you cant post anything.

Yeah it is.. sometimes you "timeout" while talking and it freezes.

Also, chat isnt working at all right now.. you cant type or see people or anything..

Also.. sometimes you enter the room and all the names are white and you cant see people..

Also, you cannot PM more then one person..

Ok im done complaining sorry haha.

Oooh, an admin posted. Well it's that when I was in the middle of PMing Asala about chat info the chat force quit me so then I had to reopen the PM. Fortunately none of the data was lost, but certainly, the chat made me quit so I had to restart it.

I suppose that is true, but some of the people I talk to get quitted on and don't come back because they quit the chat due to the timing out phase.

Well that's a good question, and I shall clarify what i meant. The problem I am talking about is with the system log which logs everything in then it can also log people out and that is not good.

Wow, looks like it is on the fritz again. I bet SO and the others who fix these things are about to toss their computers out the window about now......I know I would, but thats the Irish temper in me hehe. So, I'm not complaining, just giving my 2 cents just incase it is helpfull, also, its getting hard to get on the ATS website itself. Have to log in everytime and its just acting weird.

Good luck guys

I'm going to keep a chat log on MSword so that I can U2U a person who helps with the chat when there are problems with the chat. I hope SO and the other admins get the chat fixed right away.

Yea I time out all the time mid conservation. Sometimes Ill be mid convo and get the time out of doom where I just get repeatedly timed out till I shut the chat down completely and reboot.

The single time out happens at least twice when Im in chat. I spent an hour or two in chat one time and remember getting 4-6 time outs mid conversation and a timeout of doom once that night. Those ultimate timeouts happen like every other day Im in chat.

Very aggervating to have to shut chat down mid conversations. Couple time I just left because I couldnt even close the chat. Reason being is when the chat starts to do that time out of doom my entire PC starts to run very slow. To the point its like a race against time to hit the close button before it hits the next time out and the X button no longer works. Fustrating? You bet.

Anyway, I miss the doorbell..hahaha.

The chat has been neglected for a long time and is suppose to be a priveledge for 200+ posts users contribute with, however under these circumstances and the ignorance of its developement leads to poor imbalance with the overall process of project Dark Matter.

that has absolutely nothing to do with the topic that I said. the chat has always worked for me and I plan on using the chat. The chat, however, apparently seems to be dealing with some bandwith issues, and I hope that an admin or moderator looks into the problem shortly. Being ignorant like you are has nothing to do with the problem.

... It's a Beta version if you haven't noticed. And has been for a very long time. Its functionality is very poor, which leads to neglegence. A lot of resources apparently is for the forum and unnessesary eye candy.

yeah im having problems with the chat too, you could allways add me on msn (TheBladeRunner@hotmail.co.uk) so we can talk about mullets of doom on a one to one basis, allthough we could invite other ATS people, and it could serve as a temp ATS chat i guess.





mullets for the WIN!

Everyone, I know you're antsy but we'll get it fixed.

I sent out a distress call. It will be handled as soon as possible.

Yes, "time-out" and "lag" definitely are issues with Chat. I used to regularly visit but ever since the new Chat made its' appearance, I find that I simply don't want to deal with the annoyance. Still, I am hopeful. After all, as "7 Ayreon" pointed out, the Chat appears to be a "beta" version.

Personally, however, I find the most annoying aspect of Chat to be the character limits. That is, user-names are limited to fifteen letters! What about guys like me -- benevolent tyrant? As it is, I usually have to endure one of of lysergic's poignantly erudite taunts about my name appearing as "benevolent tyra" every time I log on! ARRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!

The version of this chat replaced a Flash Chat which had been experiencing technical difficultys when I was eligable to use it. Project Dark Matter came into affect several months later and gave way to ATS Chat Beta 0.2. As I recall, there has been an unofficial announcement of it being updated, however it has been several months and as I have noticed, a lot has been put to other areas of ATS other than this applet. It doesn't really hold any Dark Matter characteristics, looks as though it were quickly coded to only work with minimal functionality. I must assume that if Project Dark Matter is so amazing, why does it appear this is neglected. I'm not flaming anyone just pointing out the obvious. It's been a long time and finally now someone sent a distress call to which should have been several months ago than now.
