why are the newest messages on the general chat area on the highest page numbers while onthe share chat[ages teh newest are on page 1. Don't really care which it is, just wondered about the inconsistency? thks in advance for a reply
hi buller. the normal share chat where the newest comes on page 1 is sort of like a chat room so people who look at a share consistently can see the newest messages first. whereas as the general chat area is like a forum where newest posts come after the old ones, so you can read the whole thread without losing track of the main post. i think admins got it right. rambo
No problem, I am sure I can get my brain adjusted around it, just got confused first time I saw it. By the way I still think at least for q while it would be useful to put general chat into the entries on the side and the latest entries on share chat alongside the normal share chat just to give the whole new area which I applaud some impetus. Thanks rambo and Admin for your replies
New question for admin - Sometimes there is talk of posters using multiple i.d.'s or of banned posters reappearing under a new name. Do admin have any way of stopping this possibly through ip address? If there is no way of monitoring it then I guess it leaves the site open to corruption.
Hi boredmum. Yes, we monitor the site constantly for multiple ID's and ne'er-do-wells! This stretches to banned posters, but we would obviously rather not disclose how this is undertaken. Thanks for mentioning this and your continued common-sense posting/support.
I have a question for Admin, I know that you are continually looking for ways to improve the site. I have found today that there seems to be lots of traffic on lots of different shares. As we have a filter out function is it possible to have the opposite so that if we have say 20 shares then we could just see chat come up for our portfolio or watch list?
Yes - this is actually something we're looking at doing - certainly at least with the news. However, the idea of doing a combined user home page with news, chat, etc. is quite a nice one - we'll put it on the list.
