Update for Chat Rooms

As recently requested by ‘yshanti’ and ‘Australia’ there is now currently only one chat room open.

http://www.chatinvato.com/chat-room/main-chat/

As the site grows, we will continue to unlock the other chats for the specific marketplaces, and the Off-Topic chat.

^ that’s a good idea!
I second the suggestion of a time stamp to see when something was written.

I’ve just added timestamps! Not sure how well they work though…

I still don’t quite understand what the added value is to build a custom solution over an existing protocol (cough IRC cough), but oh well, I’ll give it a whirl :P

I did notice you started to include a timestamp in the input field. Perhaps it’s worth considering to just timestamp the messages after they’ve been inputted? It would guarantee consistency (and it would allow you to display them in a smaller / gray / right-aligned / different format if you wanted to).

Thanks for the time stamps!

+1 tho :) Edit Is it possible to get the time from my time zone? It says 5:28AM now, when it’s 14:54PM for me. I think it’s a bit confussling since I’d like know when the last comment was typed as I enter the chat, to know basically if it’s worth replying still. But now that it’s just some time from somewhere on earth it doesn’t help me much :(

Keep up the great work!

Edit

I just changed my display name from iHelp to Mel and it’s still iHelp in the Chat. I don’t know if that’s intentional, so I want to let you know.

That’s strange – I’ve got your temporary account here but it’s not gone through because of the email link not arriving. Please send me a message so I can sort it out.

Why wordpress ? Check this out -> AJAX Chat. It`s a complete chat solution and it works pretty nice on decent servers.

I know exactly what you mean. I did it really quickly just so that people could have some sort of reference.
