Default Users in chatroom

Is there any way to tell how many people, and perhaps who is in the chatroom, for people slightly anxious of many people it may be nice but also I dont like to pop in late at night and make people who are idle feel they have to chat, would be good to see if chat is already happening.

If it is straight IRC I could probably code something up but there may already be a way? Would anybody else find it useful ? or am I just looking to find something to code for no real reason

Yeah it's straight IRC. I just found this link: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1...out-joining-it

Serenia (the network SAUK chat uses) does what the link mentions, therefore seems it's not possible. I wouldn't find it useful anyway. You can always just go into most chatrooms and say nothing if you want, no-one objects.

I did that a couple of times but when it was empty (or just idles) so it kind of felt like it dragged people in who were idle and felt they had to say hello and welcome me to find I was off again immediately coz nobody was talking, I was just checking who was there really.

Ta for the link, will give it a read.

Don't worry too much about people feeling obligated to start chatting - most people change their names to something like Azi_away or Azi_sleeping when they're really not around/just lurking. I'm guessing there's a number of people all sat there feeling the same as you (nature of the SA beast, unfortunately).

What's the line, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery? Will the real (not so) slim Azi please stand up.

When is chat the busiest? I sometimes go into a chatroom elsewhere, but can't cope if there's only one or two people in

Evenings are busiest although how busy it is varies from day to day

There's certainly some chatting at other times yes, not just in the evening.

Apologies, we had a regular known troll persistently trying to access the chatrooms over the weekend. Trolls tend to use various different names and unfortunately a couple of new users got caught up in ops trying to keep the troll out.

Please do come back and chat.
