Our chat developer has made optimizations to the NS chat. Can you please check it out and let me know how it's performing for you and the rest of the community?
I don't notice any changes or anything new... can we get a clue as to what we are looking for ?
Just the speed logging in for that one; however, I am almost finished with the new version we're going to push.
upgrades are that are being worked on and planned to be implemented are. .

If you continue to use Comet Chat for your chat software, no matter what you do it is always going to suck. I am referring to the fact that it is not in the software to allow a user to display a webcam icon next to their name when the person is running one.. forcing the webcam user to constantly having to manually display her 'webcam broadcast link'. This is not a good thing for anyone who runs or views cams. If the provider forgets to advertise her cam, then no one knows to view her. She might also lose potential business because of this.
the old chat .... people loved it there was always 25-30 people in there ... this new one your lucky 3-4 at times
so, those use flash. flash media servers are very expensive, unless you use red5. even when you use that, it has high bandwidth usage and doesn't support mobile at all. you have to use a separate plugin or addition which they charge extra for. red5 for flashcoms isn't even made or supported with the version they have of red5 available. you have to compile binaries which isn't fun and good luck on the config. I've got it going before, but it's a nightmare. Then with AV Chat, that's a great solution, but there's a number of nuances with them too, and it can get expensive. For this site, it doubles in cost of what's being used, and for a free chat server it gets awfully expensive for the fact that what's used does meet in terms of requirements. The only thing that is a bitch and can't be done with av chat is a gifting system. i've talked to the dev on that and it's not really possible since it's using flash and action-script still.
let me know if you hear of any others!

And keep in mind that flash is going away on browsers in a few months...
u cant even see whos in there...
u expect people to come to the chat feature but u cant see whos in there..
so many people pay on this site and stuff aint even right...
u guys need to get ur acts together and figure away that the people that be in the chat room can have a good one to speak to people in...
not to mention its a good spot for us providers to advertise and communicate in there..
completely fixed. told ya it'd be up tonight.
I have no technical background in software so I can't comment on that aspect.
AV chat seemed user friendly. I look at it from the end users standpoint. As far as the expense goes, NS is a pay site that is growing rapidly. It's up to the owners to budget for expansion if they want a vibrant chat room.
Edited to add: It looks like you greatly improved the existing software. Thank You
I see a list of names for private chats but no chat room...
Anybody else see a chat room?
I just see who's online and can not click on a chatroom to enter.....???????
No offense PD buts that's the most pathetic looking chat room I've ever seen
I didn't design it, so not offended at all.
My personal preference is RocketChat, but people get all weird about it because they're lost with new designs and functionality. Learning curves, ehh?
It automatically puts you in the room.
like i said u cant see whos in the chat room..
nevermind I got in. But like Alicia said ... who's in the room and who's online...
PublicDrunkness is still working on the chat issues =(
the only reason he launched it was so he could get payed for doing so...
you guys really need a better chat that is functional for the users of this site...
not some crappy chat room...
thats why i aint payed yet on this site...
I pay $70/ mo
