Hi all!

After many updates, changes, and different chat programs,  we finally have a new working chat content type. While it is still not quite perfect, in a week or so  we will be adding sounds when new people enter the room, and we want it to eventually have some fun things like smilies It is now working and available to use.

Yeah, we ended up going through two other third-party components for the chat room, neither of which scaled under heavy user load.  One of them apparently thought it needed to maintain state for every person online, whether they were in chat or not, bogging down everything.  Ended up writing our own.

The more "fun" features like emoticons and sounds will be added like Sandy said, but they have to come secondary to support tickets and nailing down the last quirky bits of the editor.

Thanks for your patience over the past few days.
Aaron Lewis,

Is there a way that we can turn this off?

I DON'T want this up for my guild.    In my experience I have found them to be disruptive, and take away from people actually being IN the game.

An option to include this or not would be very handy.
