Seniors hideaway - yes I just successfully changed it to Loray and confused the other chatter in the room.
It's not that the system won't let her - it's the fact her cursor disappears
and she cannot get it back to type unless she does a chatroom refresh. Editing to say - I got this part wrong
No idea why it would only effect Surface tablets but she said the problem started with the recent Edge update which was most likely received during the last system update, and also occurs (for her) using Firefox on her Surface.
Any of you on staff have one?
I need more devices lol

Now, every time I try to type in a chat room, I have to click first to see my cursor. I have never had to do that before. This is only when I'm using my surface tablet.
Ahhh hang on - I was rereading everything and this is also how it behaves on both my iPhone and my 8 inch Samsung tablet I hit enter and the keyboard and cursor both disappear until I tap on that field again. I think it has always been like that. I am wondering if it is a "responsive" behaviour where previously the system here saw your device as a computer and now sees it as a mobile device.
Sorry Gunter - I should have reread sooner :)
My account is Plus, Yes, and has been for a long time.
I do not use Zeta unless I absolutely have to. So I view all in Classic, including Seniors Hideaway.
The Surface is a windows based computer. It's not like a phone and it's larger then a tablet.
No, it has not always been like this as far as the cursor disappearing. At most, I think it's been the last two weeks and is very annoying.
Oh and last night after about a half hour in chat, my cursor again disappeared even though I was chatting as xjayjx so I didn't have to change my nick.
the Loray nick is just a basic account. xjayjx is the plus account.
And as far as it not changing my nick (even though I have it set different in my preferences) must just not work in chats. strange for sure
Sorry this is so frustration. And for all my questions... You are chatting with the default chat and not Java?
correct. I have not asked for java for ages.
I guess it's one of those things I just have to live with. I'm not smart enough to figure it out. but Thanks for trying.
What I have found is that eventually after a future operating system update - things fix themselves. That happens a lot with mobile and my iPhone.
