Hi everyone,

is it just a feeling or does it so happen that more and more chat is simply being deleted?

I thought the idea of deleting chat was to get rid of very abusing chat only.

It seems this option is being abused though and now even used on rather neutral or friendly chat. What can there be done?

I agree,

Thib perhaps might have programmed in such a way to delete chat which is something like spam, but unfortunately all crucial chats are being deleted.

I am being pissed off more because, i often get back to the chat which took place between me and Scottie on 23rd August.... I posted about my win vs. Mark (Rybkaforum), and that got deleted too..

It needs to be rectified instantly !!

On a little variation of this subject. Thib, I was wondering if you could have the chat refresh each time the page does. Sometimes people reply or challenge or whatever and unless we manually refresh or we get a move we don't see the chat until it is to late.

It happened yet again.

Somebody, please wake up Thib, he needs to correct this before people run crazy after this :(

I just woke up ;) Okay, I'll fix this soon.

If I'm right, chat messages are deleted by clicking on the triangle to the left. I have no idea whether this is some kind of standard practice, but I must admit that once (long ago) I wondered "What happens if I click on this? Oh dear, I seem to have deleted it" I feel sure that others must have done the same.

So, Thibault, you have to work around the ignorance of people like me.

It's probably a hard thing to do but only the moderator and the person who posted the chat should be able to delete it. That's how most chats work.

Hi Philip, it is true that the interface is not so easy at the beginning... the mouse over the pics tell what's the click's effect. I don't know how to improve it yet but suggestions are welcome :)

Don, it wouldn't be a problem to do that but as the chat bar is available on all public pages as well, I prefer that everyone be able to moderate it quickly if necessary... I'll update it so that the posts be deleted when at least 2 or 3 persons click the arrows, then we will see...

The chat should just occur in the forums. I've never understood the need for the chat bar in the first place. Just have your conversations in the forums.
