One more question which has to do with the order that the chat rooms are displayed in.

Don't recall this coming up before and don't know of a way to sort them in the forum. They look to be showing with the last room created on top.

The chat listing on our front page orders the various rooms by the number of chatters.

If I delete the Animal Trivia chat room then will my main chat room revert back to the top?

I've always had the main chat room as the first choice for 19 years now and I have had people clicking the wrong room all evening.

Uggg It seems silly to me that you can't change the order of the rooms and the only way to fix it is to start completely over with everything simply so the rooms show up in the correct location.

This is a pain in the behind.

To be clear Sassy is referring to the list of rooms on her forum.

I think they list alphabetically, I changed the name of the new room in Zeta view so it was *Hearts* Trivia-Animals but it did not immediately resort. I deleted it for now and if Sassy gives the OK I'll try again when they are not holding an active chat (and let you know if that's the ticket)

Doesn't look like alphabetical in forums where I'm checking.

And on her start page too - where are you seeing haphazardness? I may have set these all up in Zeta...

The posts are held for my approval, until they are given voice~ there is no set time for them to be released until I apporoved them~ they are held in moderation until then. I don't see where you are showing me these other setting Cstar are they in the controls for my forum or where?

chat is closed now and will not be re-opened until 7:00PM Eastern time tomorrow evening. I posted  to you in the staff folder at *Hearts*. I do not think it is alphabetical but of course I am always wrong! LOL I really wanted the Animal Trivia with a bot to log it but not at the expense of re-doing all the chat rooms that are already finished and being used for many years now in the order that they are currently in. I don't want to ask anyone to redo everything for just the Animal Trivia Chat so the rooms don't change their positions. ( I don't care if the 2 games rooms are under each other however ) as long as the rest of the chat rooms remain in their current positions if that makes any sense? LOL

Love ya, (((love&hugs)))
