chat

As some of you may know, Digi-Chat is currently down and when it comes back up, who knows how long it will stay there.
In the interim, please use the above link for our temporary chatroom.

Any questions or comments about the "new" chat may be asked in this thread.

Both chatrooms / applications still exist.
The second / newer one is a backup for when Digi-Chat crashes (which was more often then not)
Regular users can create private channels/rooms and have people join said channel. This way, everyone can run games without affecting the other rooms.

errrrrrrrrrrrrrmmmm
what in the name of the unholy happend to the dyce-bot? :badbad: :frust:
No adding up?
No multiplying?
Huh?! :thwak:

Lemme guess; the code corrupted and had to go back to default settings for the site?
IF that is the case; cool, I can dig it.
If not, why the backslide?
It was FINE for years as it was... I do not see why it should have been changed to what it is NOW, UNLESS there was catastrophic failure of the site-code.
Sorry for the nerd rage, but seriously, what the hey?!
I have more than enough workarounds that it's only a minor annoyance (very minor in fact), But I know there are several people who are right now chewing battleship steel plate in frustration and using many words not used in polite company over the unexpected step BACK in user friendlyness.
An answer to them all aside from "It's working" I think would be appreaciated by them all. EXPLAIN why it's been changed.

Nothing has been changed.
There are 2 [two] chatrooms. No code was changed/added. These 2 [two] rooms have been the same for the past couple of years.

Not to be contrary, but...yeah, things have changed. The rooms have been re-named, and the dice-roller function/feature no longer possesses any math skills, nor does it tally the combined result of the dice you roll. So if you only need to make a straight roll of, say, 1d6, you're fine, but say you needed to roll 1d4x10 [a common damage roll in Rifts and other systems], then you would be out of luck, as the dice roller no longer allows you to do it. YES, there are ways around it like rolling 10d4, but that defeats the purpose of using multiplication in the first place, does it not?

Not trying to be rude, just supporting the eyebrows being raised. The chatroom HAS changed.

There are 2, count them "2" CHATROOMS.
Neither one has been altered.
Both may have a different variant of the dicebot from each other, but individually, neither has been altered.
Chatroom Version 1
Chatroom Version 2

It should be back the way it was. I was doing an upgrade that went horribly wrong, and lost all settings.

I'm going to try the upgrade again later, after I get the kinks worked out.

OK.... So no one noticed that I upgraded on 9/12. That's good, as long as folks are still using this version.
