Flashchat?

After the 2013 database crash, most new topics were created in a single forum. This is that forum.

If that white square gets put back up, that could be a sign.

There was a white square at the bottom right side of the Board Index page that told who was in the chat-room and when.

It is unlikely. It didn't seem to be used that much anyway, so I think this new chat box should be good enough. I do want to put a chat button in the top navigation bar to show how many people are in the chat and to pop open a floating chat box.

What about an IRC chat?

There was the Absolute Anime chat-room and there was Chatango, Can't you fix Absolute Anime back to normal/back the way it was?

I don't know of any and hadn't had time to research any. Not sure what the advantages and disadvantages would be over the chatango chat.

I could find you a link if you need, but yeah, try out Chatango first. I wanna see how that works.

We used to have the choice between 'FlashChat' and 'Chatango' or both. 'FlashChat' on Absolute Anime went away/dissapearered after the big error on Absolute Anime.

The Chatango chat box used to be in the sidebar navigation area, but you had to scroll down to see it. Not the best placement for a chat box, I admit. Last week I finally got around to making it a floating chat box which seems better. And then I made it the main chat program instead of FlashChat, which I didn't want to install after the crash because I remember it being a big pain the last several times I had to do it.

Sorry to be a pain in the neck, but I don't see it. Is it available on all themes?

Nelly, for me, the Chatngo is at the top of the screen, a semi-transparent black bar that has Home, Anime, Characters, etc. To open Chatngo, you click the quote bubble image, and it opens the chat to the bottom right of the screen.

I've updated the prosilver and subsilver2 themes to have the top navigation bar with the Chatango button.
