Re: Chat News!

Thanks. If you wouldn't mind checking again in a week or so, I'd appreciate it. Getting booted/banned from chat is at the profile level so if turning it off isn't permanent, booting you should be. Although, I don't know what the difference is between getting booted and getting banned but neither kick you out of the forum, just chat.

Re: Chat News!

I was able to test it this morning, and chat is still disabled on my work computer, just as it was yesterday.

Re: Chat News!

Thank you Jim. I doubt it has to do with your profile so if you log in on another computer, you'd find it like you did. Let me know and if not you can be my experiment.

Re: Chat News!

I logged in on another computer, and chat came up. So, if there is a profile setting that should be preventing it from coming on, that isn't working. I'll let you know tomorrow/later today if chat comes back on the computer on which I originally turned it off.

Ha! You weren't one of the two I booted. You have to be in the chat for me to boot you out. It's gone from my iPad as well.

Re: Chat News!

Ever since the chat was brought back, I've not seen the icon on my ipad at all. Whichnis fine by me.

I did turn it off on my PC at home, but I'm on the road till Fri, then on the boat till Mon. It will be a while until I see it again. In the past, chat would reappear after a week or two, not at every reboot or anything easiy identifiable.

Re: Chat News!

About a month ago I was putzing around with the moderator functions in chat and booted two people. I didn't give it another thought because not all the functions are active. A week later one PMed me and asked if I knew when chat was going to be brought back because he hadn't been able to get in for a week. Oops!

So that was going to be my plan for those who wanted it to go away: bring them into the chat and boot them. They still have full access to the forum but no chat.

To get them back I had to drag their icon into the chat window to "invite" them back. Let me know, Ron, if you want in.

Re: Chat News!

I turned it off some time back and haven't seen it since.. in fact I don't see anywhere to turn it back on?? There used to be a minimized 'power button' icon remaining...

Re: Chat News!

Donna, just to give you feedback, I followed your instructions above and it has stayed off for me. I have shut down and rebooted; haven't tried clearing my browser cache yet.

I didn't find it annoying or a distraction, but just wanted to try turning it off.
