Happy Easter folks!! If you're not a believer in the Easter holiday, then have a happy weekend regardless.
Anywhere from 3am and 3:30am, there was a power outage at the web host which caused Chatropolis to go down. Admittedly there were some really bad thunderstorms that passed through with heavy winds, a few tornado watches in several counties, and heavy rains. However, what caused the UPS not to back up power I have no idea and is waiting on the web host to respond as to why. I will let you know when I find out more. In the mean time, the upstairs chat rooms are down at present due to network issues and I'll work on that later this morning. It is 20 after 6am and I need rest.
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.
