    Is it my imagination or has the new chatroom killed chat ? Hard to explain but as much fun as I have had there( old chatroom ) ....I really don't care for the new room.....It's lost its luster .....the cams are great but thats about all its gained .....IDK ?

    I think you are right Inc, I have. noticed that I chat a lot. less now that we have the new version. I know I cam A lot less because it screws with my connection speed. Perhaps it is just all the fun times in the old chat room; or possibly that I an getting older.

    The new may be fancy, it may be a cam watchers wet dream; but for those mmbers who acrually chat in the room, time and i hope upgrades will tell what version was better

    I don't think it's the chat room changeover which has caused a degradation, I often find that a lot of people in there don't actually write anything and just lurk. When folks are in there who do actually chat (such as you two fine fellas above me) it's business as usual.

    I agree that NEW version stinks with possibly the exception of the video. Takes two hands to use and that sucks cause it means my solo performance suffers too.

    Why fix it if it works?

    Does the chat room work for tablet computers? I tried logging on and couldn't.

    I think it must take a lot more memory, My lap top is slower than slow i type a word and wait for it to appear before I cant type another word , So far less chatting going on , and then you get bored and leave ..... I guess its time to upgrade the lap top now ..

    I'm afraid I have to agree with the general concensus. :frown1:

    In the beginning, during the 1st beta phase, I thought it was going to be great. The appearance was a big improvement on the existing chat. I loved the improved cams.

    However, now after using it I can definitley see the speed issues. Another aspect that is discouraging is that if someone clicks your cam while you are typing, the "permission window" pops up, and interrupts your typing. For those of us, who are not professional typers :redface:, and look at the keyboard while typing, it really sucks to look up and find that the 2nd half of your sentence never made it to the computer. :mad:

    I know Rob is trying to give us the best he can. Just some feedback

    Could not have said I better myself. I find it frustrating especially in the in room. Typing can be soo slow. If I reduc my screen size the I can speed things up.

    This is my view, also. Altho - maybe there are more lurkers due to the amount of cams on offer?

    I've had quite a bit of quality chat in both the old and the new versions. :D
    Both of which were all the better for having FlameBoy, Ronin and Incs in there. ;)

    I went from a regular to a visitor of chat. Maybe its me, maybe its the new format, maybe its the surplus of new faces/opinions.... but I've found myself growing distant.

    You might want to clean up your hard disc. I had issues like that a week ago. I ended having to start up in safe mode, and then repairing my hard disc, and doing a defrag, and a few other things before it clear up. You might have a virus, so do a virus check too. Now I type and I don't have the lag I used too.
