There are IRC functions in PHP... but it would create a high stress to the server if the IRC channel would be queried each time the page is loaded...

Maybe some sort of a 10minute cache would do the trick (?)

Not so hard to code...

Might help :)

Or changing the colour of our names in the online listing to signify that we are in the chatroom.

Or even to inform us that someone is in the chatroom and the number of persons there.

a button in somewhere in the page that would change color when someone is in the chatroom and when the button is clicked it would pop-up a window with porn banners... UH... I mean a list of the people in the chatroom ;)

Ok, Im working on it for you, I will try to get it finished tonight depending on sleep status, however, I cannot seem to connect to the AO chat ATM, I wonder if the IRC network is down? Anyone else got the same issues tonight?

Do you mean selespeed people can't use it? Or they don't show up on a list on the forum?

If the latter, then go for it, it's still an improvement on no list at all.

What about those people who have joined the chatroom via real irc client?

@Pasi...

Again, they will not show on our listing because we use username recognition, this way it will only show members that go to the chat, via AO links, so if this feature is to work, we should ask people to use that method.

Where is the chatroom? I've not seen any links or anything on the forum?
Hi Dave G,

The link to the chatroom can be found by paging up to the top of any forum page, on the button menu, you will see a "Quick Links" button/text click it... On that menu you will find the link to the "Chatroom" and many more.

Regards,

AO
