What happed to the "x users are in chat" thing? It's gone for me.
Its a bug that appeared during the latest forum upgrade . . . spent like 2 hours trying to figure it out, gave up, and decided to fix the other 20 bugs first. I'll look at it again soon.

Good question . . . mostly you just need to hang around until other people join.

90% of users are in the US and Europe time zones, so I guess from 4pm to 11pm Eastern US timezone.

For me its a sunday morning ;D
Anyway, on to my point. Recently i have seen near to no people in the chat, usually just the new guy in the forum :-\
Does anyone still use the chat at all?

i know, i think the thing is we look to see who is in the chat room and when we see no names we do not bother going in and waiting, i'll go in if i have time and or there is 1 or more people in there.

I have found a bug thats kinda annoying. You can never log out of the forums or the chat. All it does is reload the page. I am using Mozilla FireFox the newest version if that is any help. To leave the chat you have to close the tab/window. That is when people see "username had timeout." because they did not log out properly and the chat system just checks if that person still have a connection with it.

Any fix? By the way the ChatBot is really smart :P

Yea its a bug that I somehow added in and never bothered to fix because I'm always too busy with other stuff. I'll probably never end up fixing it lol :P

I'll probably make chatbot smarter in the coming months, when I hopefully have more time!

Not being able to log out other than just 'disappearing' all of a sudden seems like a pretty big deal to me.

Sorry guys . . .

I tried really really hard to reintegrate chat, but it just doesn't work. Probably code version conflicts in the forum core files, I dunno . . .

I'll try again when I upgrade the forum to SMF v2.0 when it comes out . . . probably this summer.

That said, I did a really ugly code hack and got the AJAX chat to work fast as it should. I gave up trying to fix the php bug :-X

An update . . . SMF 2.0 hasn't come out yet. And I'd probably need 1-2 months after that to get it all working and rewriting the code.

So probably not till this winter the earliest I'd have it back up.

. . . well, actually its still working and usable, but its dysfunctional by my standards.

The chat is pretty good!
How about the ability to play a game of chess with chatbot,
if really lucky and i learn JS i could do it...
That would be cool...

I hope not.
And a way of turning off chatbot's question answering would be nice...

And it was good.

I think it would be fun for the Chatbot to interact a little more. Like if someone says something like "hello, ChatBot" or "hey ChatBot", it will respond to you saying "hello, (name)". Same with "Goodbye ChatBot" or "bye ChatBot", it'll respond saying "Bye, (name)" or "Goodbye, (name)".

I know it's been forever, but I finally got the SoR Chat working again. You can find the link in the top menu bar.

Our favorite Chatbot isn't 'thinking intelligently' yet, and the colors/theme is all ugly and not fixed, but hey I'm only one person here :P

I've given many of you 'old' members moderator access.

If anyone has any trouble with chat, let me know. It might have bugs . . .

ps - Chat is for social purposes. Forum is for robotics help.

Hi,

Nice to see it back!

How about adding either Swatch time or some other means of countering time zone differences?
Regards,
Søren

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?

Hi everybody! I'm a recently-discovered robot enthusiast! Could you hobbyists out there tell me which companies to purchase robotics from? I'm interested in researching!
