A successful chat server software update was done last night and this addressed the autoscroll issues which I have witnessed myself as having been fixed. Also, for members, a new chat profile preview pane has been added in the
Home section. This will not only preview your coded avatar string but also will preview the Message Prefix that goes along with it. As soon as you enter your avatar string into the Screen Name field, it will activate the
preview window. For saved chat profiles, as soon as you click on your saved chat profile, it will display a preview of it for you. This is avwelcomed return to functionality from the previous software.
Next up, a new subtitle field that will mirror and replace the workaround called "ghost tags" in order to produce the same effect.
For all room owners that no longer find their room on the Underground Whochat list, for now your room settings have been altered until you provide your most updated and most used contact email address on your entrance page. Your management console is still available for you to go into and update your Entrance HTML. If you decide to go into your management console and re-enable your room without applying this email contact to your entrance page, then your room will most likely be removed until it can be updated. This was apart of the Terms of Conditions when signing up for a UG room so this should not come to a huge shock to most. To those room owners that have applied some sort of email contact, I thank you and your room was not altered in any way.December 31, 2015
A list of open issues at present that are currently being overseen and fixed:

I bet a lot of you have gotten this particular error. This is a simple error with a simple fix. Your chatting in any room is started by a chat session that is created and a session cookie is created for this chat session. However, some times when disconnected abruptly, or upon leaving and reentering too quickly (before the chat session has a chance to end), or just a chat session that gets hung up. The easiest fix for this is merely deleting your cookies. Deleting that chat session cookie will force the server to request the browser to create and store another cookie for that new session. I get this at the Help Desk quite a bit and you all really do need to know what's up with that so you can quickly get back to chatting again.
Did you know as a member you can reserve URLs the same way you can your screen name? Yes you can. You can reserve up to 5 URLs at any one time. Why would I add this feature? Well we all know of impers that snag your favorite avatar URL and make them their own as they impersonate you. Well that comes to an end. You reserve your favorite URLs and that can't happen. I figure 5 URLs for starters "should" be enough as the life cycle of avatars tend to be short before "on to the next one" but I'll consider upping that limit to accommodate if necessary.
