Is there any way of having a box on the homepage telling us who is on the chatbox?

Is the chatbox at the bottom of the forums page not sufficient?

There isn't really such a thing as "who's online" on the chatbox, every member of the forum is automatically logged on in the chatbox.

I didn't realise that everyone was automatically logged in. My thoughts were that you were only logged into the chatbox when you accessed it.

Ignore my thoughts then, stupid me.

Let me go home and play with my dogs instead of trying to be intelligent.

No Problem, you simply have to type something into the chatbox and press enter, the chatbox knows who you are.

Dober man you don't really have to be "in" the chatbox because its part of the site etc. Also the messages are not really "live", if you leave a message and no1 else does, it will still be there next week or whatever. And by then you wont really be in the chatbox anymore...

I suppose it is more of a ShoutBox than a ChatBox really

We have been trying out a new chatbox the last couple of days, it seems a lot better than the old one, I will probably launch it this afternoon.

It's only slow because there's nobody in it. Perhaps it would be an idea to start a thread if you want to have a chat session at a particular day and time. Let me know if you do then I will make it instant like MSN/Skype etc.

Hi KiwiKid - are you perhaps using a proxy server of sorts to access MASA? (and the chatbox?)
Perhaps close and restart FireFox.... also test using (argh) Internet Explorer.... If this works, it must be your copy of Firefox.

It also always helps to restart your PC - see if this works?
AND, lastly - you can always also re-connect your internet connection (had this issue before too)....

Good luck!
