New HFNHL Chat open for public test

I have set up a new chatroom for the league, you can check it out here: http://www.hfnhl.com/chattonytest2/ (that URL will be changed when test period is over)

this is an open source program, nothing is installed on your pc, so no worries about spyware.

i have added a simple authentication system and added users and passwords for all GMs. please drop me a mail at tony.kapfenberger@gmail.com to get your username and password. if more people, like assistant gms, want to be added, send a mail to the same email-address and i will add you and reply with your username and password. (please include the term 'HFNHL' in the subject of your mail so it is filtered properly)

i suggest that everyone gives it a try BEFORE the day of the entry draft, so we don't come up with problems when there is not much time left to fix them. also i need to see how the chat performs when more than 2-3 people are active.

a little more info about the chat:
- changing nick names is disabled
- it basically works like a normal IRC
- when you click on another user's name, you can private message him
- the chat features sound-notification of new messages when the browser window/tab is in background or minimized

if there are any problems, just report them in this thread.

bump.

Tony - Hopefully more GMs have contacted you about this. I changed the Chat Room link on the site to point to the 'test' Chat room. When we finalize everything and change the address, I'll change the link.

Our draft is a month away now... hopefully more people are testing this out. I'm going to try and login to the chat room every night around the time I'm simming games.

Come on folks, get off your collective arses.

Alot of work went into this ... heck Tony even helped me get it up and running on my antique PC.

Someone stepped up to help the league solve an issue on their own time for our collective benefit. Not taking five minutes to help in the 'testing' is outright disrespectful IMO.

Do you want to schedule a time for people to be on for testing?

thats actually not a bad idea.
i initially thought that sending out all the passwords would be a matter of days and then there would be enough traffic on the chatroom anyways... i was wrong

i dunno, when it is a good time for all gms. i'd say at least 15-20 should be online at the same time to see if it works without problems...

Yeah. It would be nice to get a large group of GMs together on the chat room. That way we can test it in a more realistic environment and make sure there are no problems with private chats, etc.

Everybody bring your favourite joke, with knock-knocks, a-priest-and-a-rabbi-walk-into-a-bar, guys-with-no-arms-or-legs and dirty limericks preferred.

First we would ask if you have someone you trust to draft for you in the league. Otherwise send it to Matt and if he has too many we'll divy them up on draft day.

I trust all you folks.

I'll send it to Matt once I have compiled it and go from there. Thanks.

I hate to miss the draft..missed last year after that car accident. Vegas is a better reason!

I get a "requested url was not found on this server" error when I log in with the username and password tony gave me.

Might be my work system blocking it - I'll try it at home later.

Interesting... I was just on the chat room about an hour ago, but now I get the same thing as you do.

Tony - any ideas?

EDIT - seems to be working again.....

I enter my information once, and nothing happens - the entry fields just go blank. I enter it again and I get the error.

Curiouser and curiouser, said Alice.


BTW, is anyone else perturbed by the fact that we have a smiley called "clittle"? Seems a bit risque...

Nah, just an idiot user thing. There's a letter "l" in my password that looks for all the world like a number "1" in my email font, so I've just been entering the wrong password.


Working fine now!
