BOAG - maybe try updating your Safari for me? Please?

Ok, I've seen it broken - using my blackberry. It's on the top and has this checkered green background, really awful. I don't care to fix it for blackberry but I'd like to know what is causing this and hopefully fix it generally.. but this is a pretty advanced problem, hopefully others have had this problem, I'm sure they have.

I should also add whoever coded the MOD, it's still a beta and is being worked on, so there are improvements to come, I will keep an eye on it's development.

Note you can also turn it off.. user control panel->Social Networking

There has been a period of general lag on the server late at night the past two days. I will look into it today. It's not a bandwidth issue. Nor an issue of the new chat vs the old.

Nevermind the wait and my last rant.. there's no doubt - Instant Messaging + Chat = Server Overload. (And it's not just the new chat, the old chat was doing the same thing.)

I will try and find a solution in Apache settings, ask for help from the author, but for now it's temporarily disabled.

With it disabled, I have utterly failed to overload the chat (get it to lag.)

A probable solution would be removing the IM when chatting. Got to do some custom coding to do it.

Ok, I disabled the IM on the chat page, and this appears to be a temporary fix for the problem. IM is re-enabled, just not in chat.

Instant messaging isn't in this thread So Cal, and I can't provide a link to it. It's in the lower-right, as was disabled when you wrote those posts.

Ahhhhh. I was wondering why I got 17 friend requests!!

So does the Instant Message thing mean I can chat with ONLY the people I wanna chat with?? And that ONLY they can see what I'm writing?

What's the different between Chat and Instant Messaging? I'm an idiot and don't know.



i only got 2 .. nobody loves Bug! :(

I'm going to leave the overloaded friends system off, it's lame. You can manage your availability on IM in easy enough ways (setting yourself offline, being hidden, turning it off..)

And I got 3..

Aww :kiss:

The IM system is still a major resource hog, but it isn't causing anything catastrophic when it's deactivated in chat.

Why not add a chat feature as well if the capability is already there?
