Default Chat problems

I know my password well enough, my username is right. But I can't log into chat! Any reason why?

Have you tried logging in under a new nickname without a password?
Does/did that work?

I dunno what was wrong, I finally just logged out, requested a new password, changed that one with the proper one. I mustv'e misspelled it. But I did, eventually, get in.

Yup, glad it was solved.

Should we celebrate this, our first digichat like (solved) complaint, Cheryl?

On a couple of computers I've tried, chat won't load.

Where did you try? Many workplaces and libraries have java disabled on their computers, and you need the proper java version for the chat app to work.

Ok, I got a really weird problem with chat.
I can log in, hear the disembodied 'welcome', sometimes get a few words off, and then the whole thing crashes. I'm using Mozilla Firefox v1.0.7 . Chat will (I think) work with IE.

Any ideas?

Mine used to work just fine with Firefox 1.5.0.1, but after I upgraded my java version it just jams on the first screen. However, I play java games more than I chat, and with the old version a lot of games had problems with sound, so I can live with it.

Maybe it didn't work because it was an older computer (mine, I mean)

Couple of chat questions
Why, when you bring up "Who's Chatting" are some names underlined
I know the bold names are mods - but what about the underlined

The panel from where you access the Chat Room has a number after it to show who is in the room. This is not always accurate. I've seen 0 when there is actually 5 chatting, and other wrong numbers at times

Underlined means the person signed in with their MoM name and password (and if you click on them you will see their profile here).

The number that shows in the nav bar is supposed to update once a minute, but I've noticed this isn't always the case -- sometimes you have to do a refresh. And while you're actually in chat it doesn't update that number (and if you relaod the page you'll fall out of chat).

Course, you don't need to look at the number when you can see who's in chat with you...
