NOVEMBER 26: We've reverted to FM Chatbox (at bottom of forum index) due to hosting. Please bear with us...
-Site Staff[/color]
======================================

Will I need a new login?

Sadly, yes. Our database here is unable to connect to the chat database, so you will have to request a new login. PM Suzaku or a staff member for one. Smile No login is actually required, as logins are only needed for mods/admins.

What is the URL to the new chat?

It is located here: New SM Chat. You may also click "Chat" on the top of the page, as we know this URL may be hard to remember.

What is the timeout on this chat?

30 minutes, yes 30 minutes! This allows you to go AFK for longer without worrying about automatically logging off.

Who is sponsoring the chat hosting?

Simmania user Suzaku, who on the chat goes by Duncan. It costs us only $5 a month to host it, and Suzaku has asked not to send donations, as he has it covered. Wink

Will the chat have any downtime (like the Simtropolis chat does sometimes)?

Unless there's an emergency or planned downtime on the SemoWeb servers ( our host is a budget VPS at http://semoweb.com ), it shouldn't. If there is, I ask the admins PM me ASAP, so I can find out if it's on the host end or our end.

Mod Edit: Edited chat link so it does not display actual address. Guests cannot click on hyperlinks, so this way we don't have unwanted guests in chat.

Thanks for hosting this, Suzaku! We are extremely grateful for being willing to do this, and I don't know how to thank you for it.

OK, so I've gotten the software configured, and, as the config was done from start to finish in just one week, we'll likely need to change some things. I plan on making a second version of the software to release in a couple weeks to fix any bugs that we catch. Please let me know if there is anything you would like to see changed, and we can factor that in.

Thanks for your work Blake, and to suzaku for providing the hosting. Smile


Just a note to Suzaku: I edited your opening post so the direct address is not displayed, this way guests can't find the chat. Wink

Yes, the banner link is only available to members here. I'm gonna edit the link out of mine too. If anyone can't find the chat, it's on the banner. Smile
