Vox-Populi

Tonight we’re trying out a new live chat software for Vox Populi. If you’ve Voxed before, let us know what you think of it and if you haven’t, give it a test drive, it’s easier than ever!

Vox Populi begins tonight at 7:00 pm PDT. You can access the new Vox Populi chat box from any page. In the bottom right corner of each page you’ll see a power button that looks like this (unless you’ve logged into Vox previously):

Chat Sign on

Click this button and it will log you into the new chat system, changing to look like this:

Vox Chat Bar

If you click on “Vox Populi”, the Vox Populi chat window will pop up:

Vox Chat Box

All you have to do is start typing where it says “Type here…” and you’re off and Voxing!

From this window or from the Vox Populi bar (the 2nd graphic) you can click on the Options button (the icon of four lines in the upper right corner of the window) then click on your username in the window that appears to change your profile including modifying your city as displayed (or making it blank) and adding an avatar (unfortunately this system doesn’t use your existing avatars):

Vox Chat Options

Hope this doesn’t sound complicated, it’s actually a very easy system to use! In any case, we are using this on a trial basis, to get your feedback on it first before making a decision on keeping it. Let us know if you like it as compared to the live chat system we’ve been using.

Hope to see you here tonight!

I guess I was the only one that could get on right away. I had no problem clicking on the chat button, or leaving comments. Could it be because I tried it earlier before 7:00 pm PST?

At any rate, I love the new format. Is there any way you can get the chat box to go full screen? Is there a way we could learn a bit more abut this new software without doing on the job training? 🙂

Great feature AdLib, I’m so happy to see PP progressing. I’m sure you will get the bugs out and soon it will be as simple as it was before the new addition. The members here are really helpful if you can access the feature, those that know how to manage it have no problem explaining what to do, when they know. I had a great time last night, I believe I am going to have to start taking a nap on Friday’s so that I can stay up for VP…It’s wonderful. 🙂

Ad, I think we should try and fix any issues without having to wait until next week to find out if it works. So maybe keep the new Vox Pop article up and Vox Pop alive so we can check periodically and give feedback. I’ll certainly be a guinea-pig, ‘cos I so value VP!
