For long periods I dont stream and still get booted.

That's what I was asking for.  There could be a problem with the newish chat program and streaming using too many of your computer resources, but your answer shows that's not what is happening.

thanks for the details ...

I know how hard it is to get chatters to give details Kakes and you are fab at coming in and reporting for them.

I mimicked edtNZ's set up because one of mine is similar and reported an unexpected problem that occurred outside the chatroom. It's a long shot when something like that happens but it's worth looking into.

The last thing I'd want to do is intrude or upset you or your chatters. Sometimes having a set of eyes inside the room is helpful (plus I had fun chatting) even if no boots occur.

I can do some of my own testing in my own rooms with my various devices and accounts and maybe pick up something.

Hi Kid, please no one is upset about you wanting to help out.  I am thrilled that someone with your knowledge of how Delphi works is willing to take time and test this out for us.  You are always welcome to chat in our room, and are able to ask the right questions that may lead to a solution. So please do not feel you are intruding, because I do not feel that way nor anyone else. Our members are a fun loving group and always enjoy meeting new people.  Maybe someday I will be there too.  Again thank you so much for your help. :)

Ok whew lol I should be able to pop in most evenings this week if the room is open. Not having a lot of luck chatting with myself but I have found two non-chat-related problems so not so not a bad day lol

Sure stop in anytime.  We are there every night most nights starting at 6PM est and 4PM est a few other nights.  Actually, tonight I am starting early and there now.  LOL

HI Gunter,

Yes, no streaming in Seniors Hideaway and still get booted.

And to reiterate the point I also chat in Rockin' at the Dragons Lair, with no streaming and get

booted there as well.

Thank You for your attention to this matter.

Regards edtNZ

OK I am off on another long shot again but do you log in on the Delphi Home page before you got to chat? Or do you have a bookmark that leads elsewhere (if you do, can you check the properties of that bookmark and the exact address please)

Hi Kidmagnet,

I use a bookmark to log on to seniors hideaway and generally have no issues.

Very occasionally this doesnt work and I log on through the delphi home page

Regards edtNZ

Being you are so helpful ed when you have those bumping problems could you maybe note how you came in that day. And if you still have the Delphi Home page up. I think I am chasing a red herring but ya never know.

Live Story and the Home Page event thingy use the chat server. There are some "special characters" on forum names and story titles. The Live Story set up in the forum ignores those characters so they do not appear in links and things. So I don't think they'd make a difference but... they do rotate and that page does not load a different set until the page is refreshed. Which you'd have to do manually.

So if those characters DO affect things it could be affecting those that came to the Home page and clicked the link to their chatroom from there. Every time a special character appeared on the server you are on it would be like someone smacking you on the back of the head. WHAP!

Or not - just a theory.
