5 second delay
You do realize it's not 5 seconds after you post...it refreshes every 5 seconds. Huge difference. (and that's as low as I can turn it down)
Every time I post a message, it goes live in a second or two. The old Flashchat didn't seem instant every time either...sometimes there was a couple second delay or so.
I think every aspect about it is better than Flashchat. It archives messages so if you leave and come back they are still there, you can see what everyone has said before you get there, it brings in avatars, it's an instant login, loads quicker, cleaner interface, integrated better on the back end, uses our forum smilies (even the custom ones are available to use) ...etc.
Did you guys even give it a real chance? I only saw a few messages in there from you guys.
I'd like to see how it performs over the course of an entire game with a number of people in there. Do you think you guys can give it a shot tonight?
