New chat is here!

The new version of the chat has been released, try it out now!

Here's what's new:
- Interface entirely redesigned, more user-friendly and fully re-sizable;
- Separate threads for private messages;
- Members pictures integrated;
- "Ghost" issue fixed;
- Better optimization and reliability;
- Auto-detection of foreign languages in main chatroom;
- Timeout and Sign out statuses have been merged, therefore the Quit button no longer exists;
- Various other fixes and minor improvements.

Note: As this version of the chat is totally new, it is possible you encounter bugs or issues. If you ever notice anything wrong, please contact us!


Thank you people, and keep spreading the word about Penpal-Gate! 001_smile

Re: New chat is here!

Auto-detetection of foreign languages fails a bit. Try typing in "autodetection of foreign langs?" (with question mark included). lol.

It doesn't fail. There are 3 conditions though for it to be active. It only takes effect:
- in main chatroom;
- when there are at least 4 users;
- when the messages are longer than just a couple words.

Re: New chat is here!

You got warning for speaking English? That's odd, the system is based on Google and is very accurate. Anyway, I will monitor script behavior to make sure.
If something wrong happens anyway, you guys don't hesitate to let me know!

This sentence was detected as Afrikaans because of the spelling mistake. I will try to manually improve accuracy. Thanks for the report

Re: New chat is here!

you can always enable/disable the "auto-scroll" function by ticking the small box in the right lower corner

As Remus said, by default it auto-scrolls the different windows. If it doesn't work properly, what web browser do you use?

Users are kicked out of chat after 1 hour being idle. Why? Because if they don't participate in the conversation, then it uses bandwidth and CPU from the server for nothing.
A whole hour is a lot, so it shouldn't be a problem for anyone. This system was already running in the previous version of the chat.

Re: New chat is here!

true but some are disconnected before an hour due to loss of ping packages...and i guess this varies from connection to connection so there's pretty much a problem independent of the penpal-gate server . however if you really want to chat again it's not that hard to enter the room one more time 001_tongue

Re: New chat is here!

Well if it's after a few minutes then I guess it's because of a poor user connection and unfortunately I can't do anything about it. Re-connections are automatic though.

Yo man!!! Why only English? People should be allowed to use the language of their own choice. Please enable other languages too.

You're not the only person using the service. A poll has been set up and the results are clear: the absolute majority of users approve the current rules.

"---We know the auto-detection of languages is sometimes inaccurate. Don't worry, the system is monitored and we constantly improve it whenever it makes a mistake.

so it will be useful to post the exact phrase you received a warning for.

It's not, at least not for inaccurate language detection. However if you ever encounter any other issue it is encouraged to do so.
