okay, what happens is, if you leave the chat window/tab open then the shouts stick around, unless you hit the chat button as a way of refreshing. if you come into the room anew, you only get the last 20 messages.

i wish that weren't the case but it's not a big deal.
-just because replies haven't been thick n fast in the affirmative to your theorizing , doesn't necessaily mean no-one here cares or understands you , or even that they're asleep because they're not arguing your point the way you see the world and how each paradigm fits into that. I've read so many wondefully worded and DEEP shit on sab over the years, that it rivals published works in some cases.....bloody not as dry that's for shiz. Personally, i'd say, some people here know what you are saying, have probably explored the presented ideas in their own time previously but naturally, would rather, skip, run, twirl and dance to the beat of their own drum when it comes to these matters. So just because someone for example, does not want to fill in a space on your dance card, does not mean that you should stop airing your views for discussion. How many times does a thread metamorphosize like some organic creature flapping it's wings for the first time here in sabland.... and in the end -the seeker finds at the very least- some answers to their question. Alot of the time you need to knead that dough thoroughly before it's ready for the oven tin. -quote from etherealdrifter

ahhh that makes sense TI

So the server still keeps the messages but they're effectively inaccessable to us if we've timed out after 10 mins.

hmm i'm not sure it would be a good thing to change it.

i think its good like that. If people wanna chat its not hard to keep a window open with chat in it.

I understand what you mean as some times 1 convo can be spaced out over the whole day with people replying slowly but still i think its better if people arent actively chatting then only the last 20 msgs are available.

OK, I've got this all wrong.
Chat archive is kept for 24h, which only I [and possibly mods] have access to.
Content in the chat window is limited to 20 posts at the moment. This seemed plenty when there was almost no activity, but now 20 is barely enough to make sense of the current conversation. I am setting it to 40 and may increase if needed. There is only 20 posts per page, so I think you will need to find a second page link somewhere to see the older ones.

Dont know about other chat pages, but does anyone else think that the design is a inconvenient to have new messges posted at the top, but needing to scroll down to the text cell to post ? It woul make more sense to have new entries fed at the bottom, and feeding u the page.

What phone?

Mobile styles are minimalist & they remove a lot of the heavy features like the chat box.

If you go to "My Prefs" (Three buttons to the right of "Shout") there is an option "Enter Key Acts As 'Shout' Button?". Mine is default to "yes" anyway, but if it's not on yours, then that's how to change it.


this still doesn't work and I don't like using the tab method as it takes the cursor of the page any fix available for this???

^ I downloaded a keyboard software thing for my Samsung phone and was able to 'shout' but not scroll and still had no functions in the full chat feature. So going by that little test , I would say its to do with the phones generic keyboard maybe. ?!

Agreed. This inverse scrolling design feature/flaw is the single most annoying thing about this chat. I can't imagine why the designers broke convention like that.

Torsten, is there a config option to change this?

much better.

Is anyone else having trouble with their 'Enter' button not shouting when the option to do so enabled? I'm using the Chrome browser on Ubuntu 12.04

Hey T this isn't really a huge issue but I was just wondering if in the next site update or if there is an option for the chat feature to have a sound played to notify you when a shout has been made? as whenever I am on the chat I will usually browsing the forum or on other sites and its hard to know when someone has replied...

 

Also the four buttons at the bottom of the shout-box do not display what they are for

 

Thanks

would guess that the feature you ask for would only work up until the point that your browser and the chat feature have decided they are no longer keeping in touch with each other, until you return to the chat tab and say "lets see what's happening here". 

 

this interaction could be more accurately described thus:

 

dark box:  dark box?

 

jwerta:  affirmative dark box.  i click you.  "dark box" it is.
