In our constant efforts to improve and update the PlanetPOV site, we are trying out a new chat system which we debuted on last week’s Vox Populi.
It has some very good features but some members have had trouble joining the chat room it or viewing it properly.
So we are opening it for full time use to the membership this week for all to give it a test drive and help us identify the issues that come up.
What would help us greatly is if members try to access the Vox chat room from time to time through the bar in the lower right corner (click here to view full instructions on how to use the bars and chat room: http://planetpov.com/2014/08/22/try-the-new-vox-populi-tonight-live-chat-about-the-weeks-events/
Please leave a comment and feel free to chat with any fellow members there.
If you have any issues using the chat room, please post a comment here listing the following:
a. Are you using a PC or Mac?
b. If a PC, what version of Windows? If a Mac, what version OS?
c. What web browser are you using (Explorer, Firefox, Safari, etc.)
d. What happened when you tried to use the chat bar to enter the chat room (please give us complete details).
Your help with this will be greatly appreciated and if you find a fellow member or two in the chat room it could be fun too!
Ad, I liked having the Vox Populi on during the trial period. I liked the bit that let me see who was on while I was and being able to talk to one of my friends real time.
Any chance we can have it there all the time?
Second the Motion!
PPO, it was nice to chat with you and get to know you better.
Did you see that you could click on the lower right and see who was on the Planet at that time? I like that feature too.
Thanks for the second!
Yes, Nirek, worked my way through all of the features. I like the Minimize button for the Bllurp sound!
I very much enjoyed sharing with you as well, and hopefully we can continue. In the meantime, I’m just off to bed, but will comment tomorrow on your soul-searing article on Vietnam and your feelings.
Still using old Windows XP Pro, but success teaming with Google Chrome, which I don’t like! But I love Vox, so will suffer in silence!
HI adlib this is cool if you have Mozilla and windows 7
I am having major issues when I post a comment on O/T. I click Reply and it goes back to 2013 comments. It’s very confusing.Thank you. Also , I am trying to subscribe now and be a permanent donor…..Your site takes me to an entire different blog.But what pisses me the most is, not being able to reply to O/T comments.CHEERS.
Seem to be having trouble ;when I try to comment won’t let me do so. glad you are opening this new comment section and am sure you will get it straightened out Dbos
Dbos, so what happens when you try to comment? Are you able to type in your comment? Does it disappear or just not post? It will help me more to have as much detail as possible.
Can’t get on at Firefox at all.
I get the small screen with the names of whose there but no big chat screen in Safari.
Google Chrome Next.
Mozilla is the only one helping me here.Even with donations….
Ad, I clicked the button and got a blank page. Using a PC, windows 7 maybe. Not so sure.
