*New Chat - Must Register*

Post by Frank_Wx on Wed Oct 05, 2016 2:58 pm

Dear Members,

As you know during big storms, I like to do 1 or 2 chats at the bottom of this website. I do not like the formatting of the chatbox this forum platform provides so I decided to look into others on the Web. Dunnzoo found one that I think could work. You must register at the link below in order to participate when I hold chats in the future.

Please note: when you create your account it asks for full name. I put "FrankWx" (my user name here) and it works. So you can choose to use your real name or your user name that you have on this forum. How this works is I will create a "room" and there will be a link for you to join the room. I created a room yesterday with staff. I called it NJstrongweather (see screenshot). Click the room name and you are brought into a live chat session. I think I can choose to even use my Webcam so that could be pretty neat.




Link to register:

https://njstrongweather.hipchat.com/invite/636466/4262d04c36c9b34ead9dcea889983ab5


Let me know if you run into any issues. Post your issue in this thread cause someone else may be experiencing the same thing.

Best,

Frank

I just went in. I have a concern. Whats happens when there are 50+ members signed on? I feel like it may get diff to keep up with conversation. Esp on mobile devices.

The first time we do this will be a good test to see what works and does not. When there were 50+ members on the old chat it was still difficult to follow. Combine that with all the people "timing" out it became very annoying and not pleasurable to read. I know with this you can expand your screen so you're not looking at a small chat box. We will also have the ability to attach pictures which I think is neat. There are cool features, but it is hard to answer your question right now. We'll find out when we put it to use!

Paisan - since it's not my website I can't do anything. Try clicking on 'forgot password' and see if they can send it to you. Or care a new account with a different email address.

Oldtimer, the same thing happened to me. They are telling me I already have an account. The site showed me the password but I still couldn't log in.

Agree I really can't with my job as a teacher - we have been warned in meetings and written by our admin and school attorney.
