    Aahhhh. Yeah. That's definitely not right. That's what I'm getting too. And I doubt they're all "Not Available". Thanks, James, for the verification.

    Re: New chat tutorial

    Maybe we need to set up a specific time and ask everyone who's on TAT to NOT be unavailable. I think this is going to be something difficult to test.

    Maybe the others are not considered available because they are on the mobile phones.

    Oh! That's a thought. I do have the chat system turned off for mobile phone users.

    LOL. The important steps:

    1. Click on "Chatrooms" at the bottom left.
    2. Click on "Popout" at the top.
    3. Click on "TATChat.

    Re: New chat tutorial

    I may start a thread for this...

    It's been discovered (thanks, James ) that the "Currently Active Users" at the bottom of the main forum page is not correctly reflecting who's on TAT. The "Friends Online" list of the new chat bar does appear to be correct. So the problem is with the forum, not the new chat bar.

    As Kirkus I quit my browser without logging out. Watching it from a different browser (as minikirkus), the chat bar correctly updated showing Kirkus as being logged out. However, Kirkus remained in the "Currently Active Users" list at the bottom of the main forum page.

    It wasn't until I actually logged out of TAT, by clicking the "Log Out" link at the top, did the "Currently Active Users" remove my name from it's list.

    How many years has this been going on? How many times have you sent someone a PM (because according to the "Currently Active Users" list they were still on TAT) only to not have them reply until the following day?

    So, again, it appears as though the new chat bar's Friends Online list is more reliable than the Currently Active Users list at the bottom of the forum's main page. I'll look into this.

    Re: New chat tutorial

    I've never actually logged out. I just come in through a favorite places link and go to another site when I'm done. I wonder if that means I'm always showing up in the "Currently Active Users". Someone else would have to check, of course, since the only way for me to check is to actually be currently active.

    Nope. You're fine. That's how I think most of us do it. That's how I do it. I never log out unless I need to log in under a different account to test something or other. Usually I just go to another website, or quit my browser, and come back later... already logged in.

    The problem with the "Currently Active Users" was 100% my fault. I've had it set up wrong.

    You're doing nothing wrong at all.
    Oh Grigor. You silly man.

    Re: New chat tutorial

    I played a game of 4 In A Row this afternoon with another TAT member. It was fun. It seemed to work fine. There was a blinking ad in the window (blinky-moving ads bug the hell out of me), but still, it was fun!!
    Oh Grigor. You silly man.

    Re: New chat tutorial

    We were having problems with some avatars not showing up in the Friends Available list. I had the developer look into the problem and I think they have it fixed.

    Not sure if anyone has used chat yet. Just started a chat room called "Backgammon Slutz." That's just a joke. Come chat everybody!
