I tried to visit the PHP room today on the Stackoverflow chat page and normally when I do so it will load for 2 to 3 seconds and then it loads. Just now I tried to enter it except that it keeps loading, it's trying to load for about 10 minutes now. The loading message is as follows:
Loading [channel] Just a second...
I tried to check if the question was already posted or if a certain channel gets closed if there are no users in it but I couldn't find anything concrete. Not on Meta or Stackoverflow.
So I have a few questions:
- Does the channel close if there are less than x amount of users? If so I would like a notification that the channel is currently closed to avoid confusion. Will these rooms last forever
- Does the client require any special plugins for the chat room to load? For example: Flashplayer/Silverlight. They don't, no need for plugins.
