What is going on with the chat lately? My name is hung in there for almost 2 days now.

It wont let me login to the chat. Could some one get it unstuck for me please.

You need to log off using the red dot, do not just close the window next time! It always hangs that way!

I will remember that for next time. Seems like a couple of others did it too, as I am seeing the same names on my end as I was on Sunday.

Sometimes when people leave the chat window idle for a long time and/or just close the window without clicking the logout button, the sql database doesn't formally close out the connection, which leaves a chatroom 'ghost' behind. Once in awhile one of the system moderators usually pops in and clears out the old ghosts - if you feel that it's been awhile since it got flushed, send ScatDak or one of the other system moderators a PM and we'll try to get it cleaned up.

Unfortunately I haven't found any other good quality chat programs for vBulletin - aside from the ghost issue, I like all of this program's features. Sometime after my tax refund comes back I might bump all the way up to the new vBulletin v4.0, will have to re-evaluate all of the system mods to see if they will port over properly (eg: chat, timeslips, itrader, etc.)
