Chat Commands   Chat

Started Mar-6 by Kakes2; 165 views.

Hi, I'm not sure if this ever came up before, but it happened to me just last week.
Chatter name is not real for this message.

On 3/4 I put a chatter on Bozo ......   XXXXX95

On 3/5 the chatter came into the Chat room with a "tail"  ......  XXXXX95_3  which must have been cause by Delphi.
this person was able to post to the Chat room and their name was not crossed out.

I also did  a search for this name under Reports and it said " Sorry no record of XXXXX95_3 exists for Seniors Hideaway"  So I was unable to Bozo this name also.

My question , when you apply a Chat command to a name , shouldn't the command follow the Core name and apply to a "tail" generated by the system?   These tails occur for several reasons that I know of , and others may be able to add to the list.  If a person uses 2 different browsers and logs into two different chat rooms the second room will result with a the Core name and a "tail"   e.g  _2   ............... or if Delphi does a dump and someone bounces back into the room too quickly the system provides a "tail"  e.g.  _2   etc.  I'm sure there are other examples.

My point is, if I Bozo someone I do not want the see them back in the room having the ability to post on screen. 
Please help.  Thank You.

The names with added numbers wouldn't show in any search, is staff in the room able to gag or bozo them in Zeta chat?

I do see the problem as you descibe it, will check to see what can be done about it.

The Staff are aware of the problem and will Bozo if they see the name again with a  "tail".  Thank you for looking into this further.  I appreciate it.  Thank you.
