    Hi all,




    I have been investigating a few problems with the chat room and also trying to sort out the issue with lack of usable colours.




    To this end I have upgraded the chat room and I hope this should see an end to our problems. However if you are still having problems signing in or being disconnected please email and let me know.




    Also I thought I'd take some time to cover the registration details -




    1) Your name can be viewed if you do not wish this then enter a fun name.




    2) You MUST enter a valid email address which you check at least once a week. This allows us to send you updates or inform you about events or in unfortunate circumstances we can inform you about problems.




    3) You may tick the box to keep you email address hidden if you wish, it may be advisable if you don't want people to know who you are and your email address contains your real name.




    I will be deleting accounts with false email addresses and I will shortly send out an email which you will be required to reply to in order to keep your account.




    These steps are required because we have over 300 registered users and we need remove old "dead" accounts.




    Cheers

    I'm glad to know that you will be clearing out invalid accounts. Will you also create a way for people to update their user names?

    That facility already exists, just edit your profile and change the name to whatever you want.




    If you have any problems just let me know and I'll change it directly in the database.




    Cheers

    At the login page click "Edit your profile" then enter your username and password as usual. When your profile appears change your username and then click change, a confirmation will appear and you click close.




    Then proceed to login as normal but using your new username. The above process does work(just tested it) but you can't change your username to one thats already taken.




    Cheers

    Why would you want more than one user name?
    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing. But they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
