I'm with JP on this one, just bang it on the table.

What browser are you using? Mobile vs desktop? Can you try some other devices for me? Need to know if it's your browser or account

Matt, I don't know if you saw the suggestion xsuzix made in Chat, with regards to the 'flap', the other day?

So putting it out there for your consideration (personally I thought was was a great idea, don't know about everyone else) ....

What if the 'flap' could flash when someone is posting?

My suggestion is even if it was only when chat hadn't been used for a period of time. Rather than constantly when conversation is taking place, just have it flash intermittently

It is so unobtrusive that I no longer notice it when in the forums.

Don't know if it possible or indeed whether you/others would want it to?

Great idea💡 xsuzix

It is possible... but don't you think that people would just NEVER go in again if they didn't see it flashing?
People would see the blue and associate it (after some time) as being empty. They'd never open it and it would stagnate again.

Now at least you have to open, post something and hope to get a chat going.

With a flashing icon, which is possible and I'm not ruling it out, we would have to rely on some members going into it and starting a conversation knowing nobody was using it.

ADDED! ChatFlap will now flash (fade in and out). The faster it pulses the busier the chatroom is.

What do you think? If we don't like it I can remove it.

It's worth a try!

Although on my android phone it seems to fade dark grey to pale grey ... Not a problem for me, but I don't know where the 'blue' you refer to above is... P'raps my phone is just being a bit glum!

But the fading draws the eye, as said previously it was so unobtrusive that I after I got used to it I never noticed it.

Fingers crossed eh? 😉

Hello all.........not really into chat room forum's but I'd thought I'd give it a go seeing as Matt and his team have worked so hard at upgrading the site. My name is Glenn (Grizzly) and I'm in Richmond North Yorkshire.

Regards & best wishes to one and all.

Hey Lindsay, thank you. I'm not the quickest with these things, lol, bit of a techno biff with computers, lol. Been with Biker Match for a couple of years now and jumping into the Forum is a first.

How come when I post in the chatroom I press send and post disappears, cant see any of them and have no idea whether its on or not. Cant get involved in chats if I cant see my own posts.
