    Yadda yadda yadda.

    Thanks for getting the new chat room set up Ralle. Since the format is cross-browser compatible, everyone should be able to log in. We may be able to help more users in this environment and maybe have a little fun on the side!

    Sometimes when using certain browsers there is a log in failure. Try to reload the site, check the box "Remember Me" and then log in again. As a last resort clear your browser cache and cookies then try again.

    I love it. It's great for quickly helping someone troubleshoot in WE, for example, or for discussing projects.
    I suggest that we get different channels set up, and maybe have it so that people can create a separate room, if they wanted to discuss something with someone.

    Looks awsome, although with 6 people in nobody was responding. Maybe its just my internet explore or whatever.

    I think this not much faster. It takes some time to my message reach the chat.

    But, anyways, it was a good idea =D

    I dont have much people on my msn. I can go to chat here.

    I'm impressed with the continued development of our chat room.

    A complete description of The Hive's chat room may be found here.

    The Avatars linking to a user's information page are based on one's user/moderator/administrator/reputation status.

    A script has been added that introduces users as they enter or leave the chat.

    A hyperlink for the chat room has been added to the main THW tool bar.

    An "address" feature has been implemented. If one clicks on a /nick the selected user's name(s) are placed in the chat input field.

    A "whisper" feature has been added. Double clicking on a user's name allows private messages to be sent.

    An "announcement" function is present: this allows admins to display important messages.

    An "ignore" command has been implemented. By typing: /ignore username a particular user's chat messages will not be displayed until the /ignore command is used again.

    The addition of the various emoticons really dresses up the chat. :) They seem somehow familiar...hmmm.

    A "Status" feature has been added: it adds a postscript ot usernames to show that they are inattentive or just lurking. Type /@ <location> to activate this feature. Type /@ followed by a space to set syatus to normal(none).




    How many emoticons are available and what are the keyboard shortcuts for them? Could a popup menu be added to display the avaliable smilies and allow them to inserted into the chat strings?

    Could sounds be added so that when users enters a message a subtle sound is played?

    Could more channels be added: one for off-topic, one for Warcraft III discussion, one for WE help and assistance, etc?

    Could the navigation bar for Forums/Maps/Models be moved BELOW the chat window so that the window hugs the top of the page?

    Could the page itself be renamed from "The Hive Workshop Chat" to " Chat - The Hive Workshop" so that one can easily distinguish which window/tab is the chat when multiple windows/tabs are open at the same time?

    Could a topic be set by admins/moderators and displayed at the top (or above) the chat window?

    Could an /afk or /away feature be added that would change a user's name color to show that they are inattentive or just lurking?

    Not really a bug, but it needs to be fixed.

    If you are on the Resources page, there's a link to the Chat which does not work yet.

    Nice Chat, good improvments so far.

    The chat is great.

    Only thing I do not really like is icon system since im not a great fan of orcs.
    Maybe make it unlockable icons that can be opened by rep and posts.
    Sort of like the battlenet system but for the chat function.
