We've got an upgrade to our chat system and some new features:

o Avatar Support
o Avatar Library
o Recent Room History
o Expandable User/Room List
o Removable Toolbar
o Who's Typing Notification
o Status Selector/Away Message
o Double-byte Character Support
o Supports Java 1.1 to Java 1.5
o Clear Text from Chat Window Option
o Expanded Emoticon Library
o Expanded Sounds Library
o Message Separator Option


The avatar feature doesn't let you use your board icon, or upload your own, but you can pick a picture to represent yourself, which I think is nice. There's some new sounds to mess around with, but I think the best thing about this upgrade is that you don't need to learn anything, you can just go about chatting as you had in the past.

Have Fun!

The upgrade kicks ass! I love all of the new options and the fonts make everything so much easier to read. I got a big kick out of all of the sounds too.

When the chat rooms re-open tonight, you'll notice we have new room names based on the shows we chat about. You'll still enter through the Lobby, and you can still open your own room for off-topic conversations.

We're supposed to have a more accurate display of "Who's in Chat" (chatter's names) so you can look for your friends without entering. The regular, rarley accurate display, remains at the bottom of the forum index. So far, the new display is only on the main chat page at: TV Chat This new fature hasn't been tested yet, if it works I'll add it to the forum page too.

Another feature change you may notice is that if you don't say anything for 15 minutes, you'll be logged out. This is automatic, not a moderator option.

Here's our chat schedule:

Monday: The Apprentice
Tuesday: Idol Chatter
Wednesday: The Amazing Race / More Idol Chatter / Then Get Lost
Thursday: Survivor
Friday, Saturday & Sunday: Beyond Reality Weekends. Watch Desperate Housewives with other fans, Dish the Decorators on Trading Spaces and Extreme Makeover

Just a reminder, if you use our chat annex, the folks at Chatway have their own moderators, and I agreed to consider all their descions as final.
