New RP Shoutbox

Post by MichaelM » Tue 15th Feb 2011

Artificial Asian suggested that we add a second shoutbox to the forum, purely for RPing. That way if you want to RP quickly, you can, while everyone else can still use the main shoutbox for chatting normally. :)

So if you want to go try it out, head over to the Roleplay board.

MiM dear, the logs are overlapping. I've said things that should be on the second and they show up on both, then it vanishes from RP and only appears on main >.> Mind having a look for the spanner in the works?

Did you have both shoutboxes open in tabs at the same time? Have a feeling that could be to do with it (The AJAX updates get mixed up. Same reason if you ever have just the forum homepage open in two different tabs, it messes up there too :( )

Yeah, at times. *sighs* I do hope it won't keep happening or I can't keep an eye on the user's properly.

Sorry, but it probably will keep happening. It's a bug in the script :(

You could get around it though by loading up 2 different browsers. Then you can have the RP open in the other browser, if you really want to keep a watch on both like that :)

Michael, the bug is worse than I thought. It occurs whenever anyone views both at once, switching the logs for everyone. And its anoying because my flood of advice switched shoutboxes and I didn't know until I refreshed.

That does seem to happen sometimes - I think you have to be careful with which tabs you have open??? (like not having the main page and the rpsb page open at the same time.)
Or it might just be a bug.
