Was it so necessary to disable the chat yet Montana :?: I used it. That push server would be good in my opinion

I pretty much always like new features, but glad to see Matt taking a step to lower SP resource on the server. :)

Not sure how much this would help, but if the chat was brought back, it should be on a separate page something like http://www.summitpost.org/chat . Then have a link on the bottom of SP called "Chat" so that people could find this making it less "forceful" but still usable. 8)

So Matt, does the chat require another authenication for the login? (like phpbb) The reason I ask is because I wonder if it's possible to create another database for the chat system so that it hardly effects the main SP site. I've seen chat software set up so that it doesn't log you into the chat "user" until you login to the chat section.

I didn't use the chat but I liked the notification system about changes to pages (the little red icon on the right). Not complainin' tho'...it's all good.

No, it wasn't absolutely necessary. There were a very few people that were using it and only a handful of messages were sent every day. If there is a bit of demand, we can foot the bill to set it up on a push server.

Would it be possible to reinstate it :?: What do we have to express our demand :?:

Some changes may take place on SP soon. However there are bigger priorities at stake right now. Perhaps try asking again in a month or so.

Via what nonexistent mechanism?
