test the chat when you can.. me and erik are here but it doesnt show anyone in chat on the main page (caching issue) so try just in case. if you are alone, just let it sit till you leave. we need feedback. thanks.
when you say "that didnt work" can you elaborate? when you click on it, does nothing happen or does a color palet pop up? or do you get an error message? if you PM me your email address I will send you screen shots of what it normally looks like and what to do. im sure we can figure this out. (i may reply later though but ill get to it)
I just talked to myself a bit and it worked wonderfully. Had no problems with colors, emoticons, audio emotes, increasing/decreasing text, and leaving. Works way better than the old chat, but I guess I should try it with others in the room to see if it does anything nasty.
The only real problem I have had is the chat won't change the text colors, but Erik says it's because I need to download a new version of Java. I can't do that at work, and I got an error when I tried to download Java at home and kind of gave up at that point. It's not too big of a deal though.
