it's nice, a lot like MSN, it's a bit annoyingly colorful tough
also it's faded with the background like the embedded youtube videos of SC2

in Opera: http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif

the solo window is fine tough

at least you can write messages longer than 5 words.

i have for now following suggestion: i will include the second chatbox into the portal and if there is a need for it i can do an additional html-page where i could put the flash chat into. i could also make a button for the NavBar that leads to the chat page.

the reason i dont want the flash chat into the portal are quite simple.

a) the main menu in portal (the mid-section) will have several pictures and buttons to load once its ready - together with the flash there would be too much bandwidth loss for one single page. several users - especially those without DSL - would suffer from that.
b) the flash-chat takes too much space to fit the left column entirely and without scrolling Wink

would that be ok with you?

Actually I didn't have any plans on having that replace the front one. Though it would be nice. Its up to you to decide anyway. I just though it was a fun thing. Though the problem with yours is that it can only store up to like 5 messages. So I'd rather stick with the old one.

oh, sorry then. as the discussion about replacing the current one started some time ago, i thought you made a suggestion ^^

but it still stands. if you want, i can make a page for chatting... (although the button in the navbar will be visible for guests as well - but that will probably change if the Tech-Crew decides in their next update to make it possible to hide them).

what do you mean with only 5 messages btw?

Never mind my brain isn't what it used to be. Its not good to grow up under a zombie invasion.

I like blue more but I think red fits in better than blue.

i think the same. i initially choosed the red one because it fits into the rest of the page well. but the blue one seems to be better arranged overall...
