Chatmail Change (in Changelog)
:) Can't believe I'm the first to mention this.
CM's displayed on the home page now show "Sent" in the message and "Replied" at the end, when you reply to one.
December 15 2005 3:14 AM EST
I cannot now reply to CM's from my homepage.
December 15 2005 3:41 AM EST
or course, the "constructive criticism" begins:
could chatmail not be sent if preceded by "SENT:"? that seems like the logical path to follow, given the current change...
December 15 2005 3:58 AM EST
Works for me now.
I had to refresh the page.
One comment. Keep clicking reply after the first and it keeps sending with an additional SENT: attached to the start of the message...
December 15 2005 4:25 AM EST
Let's have GL reset for spamming!
And I didn't need to spam to test it, just click an additional one or two times...
December 15 2005 4:56 AM EST
I dont see it working? Or perhaps nobody cares to send me CMs anymore :p
still don't see any changes...
You can see when the message was sent and when it was delivered..I don't much like the change as people will think your rude if you don't reply to their message instantly...=/ I usually take my time with such things...donno, it's probably just me...=)
December 15 2005 8:54 AM EST
you've always been able to see that
December 15 2005 9:00 AM EST
I get a popup: "error submitting data" when I click on the "reply" button. Pushing 'enter' (as before) still sends the chatmail.
December 15 2005 9:05 AM EST
same thing mael
December 15 2005 9:16 AM EST
you probably just need to refresh, like Ranger
December 15 2005 9:23 AM EST
it was supposed to be active when I logged in, but I've refreshed anyway, so someone send me a CM ... not too many people, though ;)
December 15 2005 9:28 AM EST
Thanks Ranger. Still got the error, though.
December 15 2005 9:35 AM EST
no, you need to do a complete refresh

December 15 2005 9:36 AM EST
... and you can send yourself a chatmail to test, you know
December 15 2005 9:37 AM EST
Awesome change Jon, thank you! No more replying to a chatmail, going back, replying to another, going back.... :O)
December 15 2005 9:39 AM EST
Nope, full refresh didn't work, nor did restarting browser. The computer's been on for a few days, so I'll try a reboot...
And it didn't occur to me to send myself a CM. Kind of depressing to have to do that, isn't it? ;)
December 15 2005 9:46 AM EST
well, good luck
it's definitely on your end; works in FF and IE
December 15 2005 9:57 AM EST
Nope, still not working after a reboot. It works in IE, though. What's wrong with my Firefox? :(
(And I just noticed that the item drop-downs on the home page are the "normal" size in IE, since NW was added. They're still taller in FF.)
December 15 2005 10:03 AM EST
Naturally, the problem was that Firefox wasn't up to date. Just got version 1.5, and the the chatmail stuff works. ;)
December 15 2005 10:08 AM EST
Ahh no wonder: i have Firefox 1.0.7 here also...
December 15 2005 10:32 AM EST
Still go to the page:
Carnage Blender => Mail sent
Chat Mail has been queued for later delivery.
Back to WildEagle's page Chat Mail Home
December 15 2005 1:33 PM EST
Neither does it work in IE for me...
note: I won't go whining over this because I find the way it used to work good enough and if it keeps working this way for me it's also ok.
December 15 2005 3:34 PM EST
I downloaded portablefirefox 1.07. Works fine for me.
send yourself a chatmail. reply to it with the new button.
December 15 2005 3:40 PM EST
I do get some errors: most of them have to do with the cb.css and some with the sidebar.tcl
but i dont even see a new button at all, sorry...
December 15 2005 4:07 PM EST
got the thing why it isn't working
hitting enter after typing the CM will make it go to the other page
clicking send after typing will make it note (sent)
December 15 2005 4:14 PM EST
I thought people were complaining about a bug :P
December 15 2005 5:05 PM EST
okay, enter will now perform the async submit.
Verifex thinks this might fix the error messages some people were getting. I'll cross my fingers since I never did manage to reproduce that.
December 15 2005 5:17 PM EST
works perfectly here :) thanks jon
What should I try to do to fix it? On chatmails that appear on top of the page, typing a message then hitting enter, or hitting Reply, gives a pop up error submitting page. Refresh and restart haven't helped.
December 15 2005 5:27 PM EST
Get the latest version of your browser.
Good deal, thanks for the advice. It's weird, Firefox wasn't finding any updates, yet there was a new version online. Ah well. Everything works now. I guess CM only works with the newest version of FF now? Should there be a note of this somewhere for new users to find?
December 15 2005 6:05 PM EST
Chatmail continues to work as usual, when you let it deliver in chat (it's called chatmail for a reason...).
December 15 2005 6:05 PM EST
CM still works with FF 1.0.
December 16 2005 10:51 AM EST
I have FF 1.07, but it is still giving me the error submitting popup....is there another update I missed or something? =\
December 16 2005 10:59 AM EST

are you sure your browser is loading the most recent version of MochiKit.js? It should be version 1.1.
December 16 2005 12:32 PM EST
I can't check right now what version of MochiKit.js that browser had loaded, but I do know is that that PC was powered on just today (and it wasn't used at all since Wednesday morning), and I did refresh the entire page before doing my tests.
What's odd is that on my computer at home it works as advertised in FF 1.0.7 (same Debian package, but at home I'm running unstable, at work testing).
December 16 2005 4:54 PM EST
to rule it out whacky solar winds causing you to get broken code, please email me the html for a page on which you can reproduce the problem.
December 16 2005 5:04 PM EST
First encounter with that PC will be next Wednesday...
December 16 2005 5:13 PM EST
works for me :)
(although I extend the offer to anyone who can reliably reproduce the problem, not just bartjan)
December 22 2005 12:10 PM EST
from the lack of emails I've received I'm going to conclude that this is working for everyone now.
