    Default New "Pager" system.

    Sort of a cross between an instant messenger, and a pager, we've added the ability to send IM-like messages to members.

    System has a few quirks. It seems to work ok in IE, but is somewhat 'funky' in Firefox for me.
    So, YMMV.

    It will only send to members who are online, who have it enabled (everyone is by default), and who have permission to use it.
    Feature is enabled to all Supporting Members and staff.



    I'm running this as a limited test at the moment, while looking into the various issues and quirks, as well as monitoring how much strain this puts on the server. (Some reports show high server load with this add-in). Any problems, please post them in the support forum.

    Thanks!

    So you just type it in like an IM and then what happens?

    I guess I'll just mess with it.

    I can't use it in FF. It just sits there for me. I'll be doing more testing later.
    You can find links in people profiles, and in their posts (the little talk bubbles next to the post number) to start messages flowing.

    Me too. I was already happy though. Everybody on this board is pretty cool in my book. I enjoy the conversation and learning from every one.

    I have to agree about the loving this forum thread. I have learned a ton of stuff already and anticipate much more. People have been friendly and cordial and the egos are kept to a minimum.

    That's all good stuff.

    I've gotten lots of good ideas and things to think about. I was getting in a rut and this has really been helping me expand my thinking.

    Thanks all.

    I'm loving this pager. Heck, I love the entire forum. Kept me from losing what little sanity I have left.

    I really like this system. I had lots of converations,a nd it worked flawlessly unless you are in the currently active page, when that page refreshes you lose anything you have typed.

    I give up. I've done 12 reinstalls (that being uninstall, delete all left over files, then reinstall FF) and it works fine, until I installed either the Google toolbar or spellbound (spellchecker). After that, it's all screwed up for me. I can neither send nor receive messages. Uninstalling the addins doesn't fix it either, it requires a full rip out and restart.

    Enjoy the feature folks, but if you need me, PM me. I can answer those.
