    That feature is still there. And you're not the only one.:rolleyes:

    Addressing a few PM's this morning:

    This was a big step backwards.
    -it's still in beta but so far 5-6 have contacted me who could never get the old room to load and they can now use the new chat, i'd say that's better so far. One member was very pleased that it was not constantly crashing on him like the old one. One was pleased that messages he typed did not take up to one minute to appear on screen, etc. The old room was VERY buggy, it either worked or gave grief to many people. Please keep in mind there are barely any options for chats that integrate fully into vbulletin forum systems. It was either we use the previous buggy chat, a system called 'flashchat' which is just a webpage that refreshes every second, "phpmychat" which is also just a webpage that refreshes every second, possibly a hacked up IRC system but I hear integrating that into vb is worse than our previous chat, etc. Volano.com is the chat we are now using which is a high end high availability system running locally on the apug server + integrated to the user database (that's also being improved a great deal)

    Three windows to be open? No way.
    -a much better integration is being developed that is only one window, until then we'll just need to minimise a few windows during chatting.

    No emoticons. No fun.
    -I'm looking into that but hardly think it's extremely vital, I may post a graphic of text emoticons for people to reference in the header until graphic ones are back. for example :) =smiley

    Links either not available or apearing automatically? If one has this turned on, someone could type anything as a url and it appears on your monitor.
    -I have completely disabled this

    This is really dissapointing.
    -Not for those who had constant problems with the old chat. It will improve, a better integration is being developed and Volanochat V3 is on the horizon which is a major upgrade including dozens of new bells and whistles. My main concern is that most everyone can access the new room and it's stable..

    I tried it on my laptop, and like it quite well. In fact, it is much better than the old one. I can't run it on my desktop, but that is a different issue. Thanks Sean, this is a good product.

    Please, no emoticons, or at least let those of us who hate them just turn them off.

    One thing I notice about the chatroom. The link up top currently says there are 3 people in the chatroom, but I'm the only one. So, we know the count isn't always accurate.

    I think it must be showing 3 connections, it's possible if someone has not closed out of the rooms fully it will leave a connection showing. Will see if I can enhance that..

    I noticed the thing with the count. I think it's showing the number of people in the "lobby", including those not actually in the chatroom.
