I have to reply because jackpkmn has been named next to this thread for the past month and every time I come to the Other board, I see his name and it makes me think of Pokémon and it's been really bugging me for some weird reason.  I've finally cracked!





And I'm also wondering what the current status is on this program.
Lol, pokemon.....it was fun but now I think back and realise how much time i have wasted....
I actually have the games on the computer :P

I had a dream about the program, that is REALLY sad.

Don't worry, if it was about Sally it was perfectly normal.

if it was about Ash and Brock or any of the Pokemon in question 'd be worried.

The last time I heard, the program is coming along, but very slowly.

(Lets wait for the Administrators report)

    Actually I like the Idea of a incon at the system tray but the toolbar...
    It would be a really good thing if you could see the latest post on when you just click it and the idea to see if there is a reply is also a good one.
    I think this is going to be a super tray incon.  :D

      The system tray program is a great idea, sounds similar to metacafe's programs. Although, it would be nice to have the live chat with other members that way you won't have to wait as much for a reply and it would instant messenging, way faster to solve problems. Already probably mention here, to have some kind of icon appearing on new posted topics/posts instead of email notification (just like the one on this forum at the top "Show new replies to your posts") but without actually having to click it there would be an icon or a star, something to represent a new post. May be an area or a window for top/most popular topics.

          A number of them from different countries with different time zones will do or language filters I suppose. Also, people on this forum don't look like they would cause trouble since you don't see any happenning on right now.  :-\

          We already have a live support chat, and people can only talk to operators, meaning it's always one on one chat(not for the operator, they may be talking to any number of people) but it's not open to abuse, the admin chooses the operators.
          We used to have an IRC channel instead, but it was closed down because it kept cashing out, as I recall there were too many users across the network so people couldn't join.

          The IRC channel still exists, its just no one uses it anymore ( irc.blitzed.org , #computerhope )
          The current chat room is easier for the client side, its not meant for just chatting.

          I would love to see a recreational chatroom
          (someone could make one, or someone could make a web portal for the chat)

          The developer I had and had planned on working on this has seemed to vanish once again. So not much I can say about the status of this project. However, with the increased popularity of the post maybe it's something I can move up on the to-do list.

          Sorry, not much of an update, but at least a reply.  :-\

          Perhaps members of the community could put parts of it together?
          Or even building an online web application... a lobby type chat is a fairly simple operation
