I was forced to disable it for the time being. If any of you have a pop-out chat open close it. If you have a shortcut to the chatroom. Please don't use them until I give the go ahead. You'll seriously risk bringing the site down a possible have my host shut down the site again.

I've contacted the support of the creators of this chat software. Waiting to hear back from them. Might have to go with another option if this doesn't work out..

Part of this is we are getting hit with a flux of traffic, which is good. But it's a big strain on a shared hosting plan too.

I know you all love the live chat. I do as well. But for now it needs to be turned off.

A big part of it was we got a lot of traffic the last week. A lot more than usual. But ya, the chat system can't cope with all the traffic on my current host. When you get a 500 error that because there was so many requests that the host shut the site off until it the requests came back down.

Right now the requests are looking pretty good with the chat system off.

No chat sucks.

 

Tosh, is that why the blog was a bit slow last week? And chat response was... well, "not optimal"?

I'm working on solution, just give me some time. I'm not limiting anyone's freedom of speech. You have groups and forums to use in the meantime.

Tweaked some settings, we'll see how it goes today.

Just a FYI I don't think I ever mentioned this. But the chatroom times out after 30 minutes of inactivity. So if your away for a bit, leave the room and come back.

Chat system is live now. But you need 1,000 points to see it right now.

Really ?! hahahah

 

Is that to prevent people who just create users to take part on contests to mess with the bandwidth of the site?

The 1000 points idea was used to keep me at bay, but I'll be there soon. The troll is returning to his favorite bridge.

1,000 points isn't to hard to get if your active on the site. Yes it's also to help with bandwidth/load and to reward those members that are really active on the site.
