Lost Topic Open for Testing

Okay, I just opened Lost Topic for testing.

I've found a few bugs in it, but all-in-all it seems pretty stable.

The only thing is after you have more than 2 people in it, it gets really, really laggy.

It's a completely AJAX based chatroom, meaning no refreshing, and no java applets (all dynamic html and javascript).

I've tested it with a variety of browsers, but had mixed results.

I'm thinking if this test doesn't go very well I scrap it, but we'll see what happens.

Enjoy.

I noticed when you change the topic it posts the thread link after hitting the "New posts" button. Well when you change the topic in lost topic, and that creats a new link in the "New posts" search, would the old Lost topic thread stay ? If so, what happens when you click the link of the old topic... Hope I'm making sense here.

^^I had the same question

edit: okay, I looked at it for a little longer and get the idea now. This is pretty cool since you don't have to refresh all the time. It should also help to keep junk out of important threads

Yeah, it's kinda laggy when lots of people get in. I gotta work that bug out. And also there's a bug where the inactivity window comes up randomly after you've been in the chat for over 10 minutes. I should probably also make it so Lost Topic threads/posts don't show up on the New Posts page.

My question is, however, do you feel this feature has enough potential for me to spend the time fixing it, or do you think it's kinda a waste (honestly)? Should I spend time fixing this, or should we scrap Lost Topic and I spend my time working on United Garage instead?

Its great to be able to talk to ppl real time and not having to refresh the thread keep working on it, it will be a success

And the thing I'm thinking is nice about it, giving it an advantage over all other chat rooms on car forums online, is it uses vBulletin as a backend, logging every message as a seperate post, so search engines can read through chatlogs and when someone is looking for information talked about in there, it's indexable, and not just gone like in most chats.... if that makes any sense.
