Personal chat feature

Earlier today when I was at MakeICT, I sent a message via personal chat for the first time. This feature was activated for my account only a couple of days ago, but I didn’t notice the speech bubble icon next to the search icon in the browser app until today. It has since disappeared. Does anyone know why?



Uh, that was my fault. :sweat_smile: After I updated the forum software this morning I enabled a new chat feature to poke around and test it. I thought it was only available to users with staff roles, but I realized later that it was available to regular users, so I fixed that. I don’t know if we’ll end up using it. You can still send personal messages as normal.


It’s a good thing I didn’t write the next Great American Novel in that message, or there would be hell to pay. :laughing:

(Also, thanks for moving this topic to the correct sub-forum. I didn’t scroll down far enough to find #site-feedback.)


Yeah, hopefully there weren’t too many people that noticed while it was up. I’m sure the message exists somewhere in the database and will pop back into existence if we re-enable the feature.
