I'm not sure the mini-chat is a good idea, 1. it means more scrolling and 2. I think it'll be used to spam the forum and it seems to have zero moderation tools applied to the mini-chat!

Hmm, I'll take a look Sagi. :wavey:

I'll disable for now until we've ironed out some of the moderation issues (like myownalias spamming!). :wink:

OK, it no longer converts to an A link but it still remains as text... will mods have power to edit/delete as necessary, or will that be admin only?

Try refreshing the page - ctrl+F5. I had the same issue before I refreshed.

Agreed. Btw, want to try and get that pool integrated into this website properly now? :thumbup:

OK, I think the simplest way would be to have something like pool.forumula1.com setup and give me FTP access to that directory to maintain the pool. We need a phpBB2 install as that's how it works. There are a lot of hard coded elements in the pool so I need FTP access, I didn't write the code and I don't have time to rewrite the code for phpBB3.

You read my mind. MOA - I'm happy to code this if you're happy for me to do so.
