I love the toolbar thingy chat (cometchat?) Would it be easy to put that toolbar on all of the site, not just the chat page. If it's too much of a bother than don't worry. Though, it would be nice to be able to chat and review at the same time without having to switch between tabs.
Though I am loving the new chat. I'll miss the fonts and colours, but I'll adjust to the cooler stuff.

Ummm...
The new chat :3
It could be my computer, but when I enter chat, it sends my messages, but I have to reload it to see new messages including my own....
Is there something I need to do to make it work?
It works on my iTouch, but not my computer...

Sorry to be a bother, but I was just wondering.

Noninjaspresent ->> I was thinking about extending the Cometchat bar to the entire site, but ultimately decided against it. It's nice having just one area of the site for chatting.

okay, thanks Nate! I'll do that :3

*Edit*
I feel like such a bother, but I updated chrome and relaunched it and all that and it's still not working.

:/

Saving money = win!
Also, new chat is very nice. I like the avatars and the simplicity of it, much better than the previous chat. Thank you, Nate. :)

Spark - dunno if this'd work, but maybe try and clear the cache? Or check that javascript is enabled.

Or switch browser/computer ;P

My list of things to do for the week of Feb. 20:

- Implement friends / following system
- Extend chatbar to entire site
- Improve browse page
- Reinstate points and complete the review system
- Complete profiles (this includes portfolios btw)
- Make a real front page
- Bring back clubs (this one may not happen this week)

By the way, there will be a grand re-opening on March 4th. More details to come.

We should all have a huge party on chat during March 4th! And have everyone get a free gift of points or something (I miss points so much). I hope your troubles are few and far between now and then!

Can't wait to see the shinies! Good work!
