chatroom - update

What's up with the chat room? When I go in I get a black screen. I know it was white before... and there are text boxes... but the last couple times I have gone in to check it out, it's all black???

Chat Room Fix

we are in the process of testing the chatroom. People who have tried the chat are reportinng that there screens are black in the chatroom. THIS SHOULD NOT HAPPEN IF YOU HAVE NOT TRIED THE CHAT BEFORE!!

Some people have complained that the screen is black. In order to reset your settings for the chat, please follow the following steps:

Use windows explorer and go to the directory called

Documents and Settings

There should be a subdirectory with your name or the name of the ADMIN for your computer.

Below that directory will be a directory called Application Data

then a subdirectory called Macromedia

There will then be a directory called FLASHPLAYER.

Delete any subdirectories that refer to pets.ca

-------------
If you do not see the Folder, it may be Hidden. do the following:

In windows explorer, go to tools, folder options
go to view and select SHOW HIDDEN FILES AND FOLDERS.
now you should be able to find the folder that I was talking about
----------------

This will reset the chat.

Please let us know if this solves your problems.

Dave

I did the same also and it fixed it , however because I have several users on my computer I also had to go one step further.

I did the steps that Dave mentioned and deleted the pets.ca folder it still didn't work so I went through the steps again and noticed after going to the folder for flash player there was a "shared objects" folder that I also had to delete the pets.ca folder for after I did that I was able to see the chat room properly with out the black screen

Okay... I am not able to do what Dave has suggested.
I have no folder called Application Data, so it's probably hidden but here's the prob... when doing what was said about showing hidden folders
Quote:
In windows explorer, go to tools, folder options
I go into Windows explorer, pull down the "tools" menu and there is no folder options choice, only... Map Network Drive - Disconnect Network Drive - And Synchronize... no folder options... now what?

I've also done searches in my computer for pets, pets.ca, shared objects, macromedia, flash, flashplayer with no results.

I've also uninstalled the flash player and redownloaded it, still no help.

Anyone have any suggestions?

I have problems with a black screen again! it seems that everytime I log in I have to delete the files that Dave said....

Why is it that conversations say for so long on the board when the users have exited the room?? Most chat rooms new users cannot see anything that's happened in previous converstations... not that we were discussing anything that we don't want people to see... it's just different, and I'm curious!

Chico, I didn't even see you try and enter the room!? Were we still there??

OH Chico! I'm sorry no one was there! We should start a thread when we want to chat, that way we can get a good conversation going!

So no one knows what I should do..? Marko, Dave?? I can still type and read what people say (as long as their font is anything other than black, black font on a black screen I can't see too well, lol) But typing on black, I can't see it as I type it, waaaayyy too many typos!
Sorry Chico! I saw you in there right after I left, sorry

Probably a stupid question... but hey, I'm new.

Where is this chatroom at? I don't see a button or tab for it anywhere. How do you get in it? I'd love to chat.

Nobody ever chats on it anyway, I do think it's kind of silly people reply back and forth on these threads, but nobody ever chats in the chat room! Just my opinion

Well, it's kind of hard to chat in a chatroom you can't find. Maybe there are others out there unaware of where it is located.

Can anyone provide a link to it, or tell me where to click to access it?

Thanks.

The chat room button was at the top of the page in the blue line along with search, new posts, etc. But I guess it was taken off considering no one uses it?
