Loading Skin...
« on: January 25, 2010, 01:15:30 PM »
Just looked at the chat room.

Looks very impressive. Sound effects and everything. For a moment, I thought I had accessed a naughty site by accident as it claimed it was "Loading Skin"...Oh well, I guess I learned another useful web term today  :)

JC a couple of questions:

1) have you fixed the chatroom problems (basically the lag and automatic booting)
2) do you know how long it'll take to get all 700 odd members put up on here, we've got 450 odd at the moment

I believe that I qualify as an "odd" member. Glad to see the new site.

1) the lag issue is something to do with the database access so there will allways be a delay however, I've added some caching so the delay should be less. FulhamUSA use the same software and they have far less of a delay than we had/have.
2)all 700 members have been added however, there are currently 261 members awaiting activation

Loading skin refers to the special site the slimmers go to. They claim it is not fat and they are losing weight. Hence loading skin.

hmm, it's telling me only 1 member is awaiting activation. also how old is the databse, I know it's a couple of weeks old but not 100% sure exactly how old, so can you put up a note saying members registered after xx.xx.xxxx have to reregister?
