    Default Getting kicked from chat due to inactivity ==> LAME.

    Please stop kicking people from chat due to inactivity.

    People want to have the chat up so you can see what others are saying, even though you don't take part in the conversation yourself. Then later, you can scroll back through all of it, see who came in or left and what they said.

    It's called "idling". It's part of any chat that has regular people coming in there who can't be active all the time. How are we supposed to be active on there for hours on end?

    I also think that we should have irc chat if at all possible, with a flash chat option on the website. That way we can use our own clients to connect to it and have the chat look the way we want. We can also close firefox or whatever if we're having problems with it, and also log the chats.

    Why would you do that? If your in the chat room chat....if not going to talk leave. It's not called a watch-other-people-chat room :P

    Idling? Try spying. You should draw up the stalkers charter, I think you sit, hobbit like, waiting for all the gossip. Inactivity log out indeed.

    I am a regular chatter and use the chatrooom often,,I am not a big fan of the new room but one function I support without reserve is to kick ppl out for inactivity...this was discussed by me and many regular chatters before the changes where made..see there is nothing more off putting when engaged in a discussion than seeing there are lurkers just sitting there not contributing...just listening.... creepy i would say ..the clue is in the name... "chatroom"...however I do take your point..but like all laws that are created to deal with miscreants there will be some collateral damage to those genuine users who are just away for a little while..just one of the inconveniencies we have to suffer to make this place better for all......

    hmmmmmmm why would u want an irc????????what would be useful for??????
    all this thread and request to not get kick out when u are a lurker is sooooo sarcastic and absolute nonsense.........

    there u have few tips and by the way u do not have to thank me for being useful and helpful....

    inactivity=indicates absence of action, indisposition to activity, or cessation of activity an inactive compound

    chatroom=place where users have group discussions by electronic mail, typically about one subject,
    " " =a branch of a computer network in which participants CAN engage in real-time discussions with one another

    lurkers=people that read or observe an ongoing discussion without participating in it, as in an Internet newsgroup....

    hope this makes sense and gave you the answer over why ppl that aren't participating on the chat are kicked out........

    I agree that an inactive user should be booted out. It's especially handy if you're browsing other web pages and forget that you're logged in.
