Hey guys,

The update earlier was the installation of a little beta test of mine. http://swviii.swrpgs.net/forums/privmsg.php?mode=post

If you type in the To field, it will attempt to automatically complete it with the name of an existing user. This works for all existing accounts on (I'm pretty sure) all the major browsers. However, your existing browser form memory may overshadow it, so disable that if you want to see it work.

However, there are still a few bugs and unanswered questions - namely how costly this is to efficiency. Other bugs are how if you type too fast (in Firefox), sometimes it won't process your typing (you can correct this by waiting a few seconds and just typing a space character) fixed, and a few problems with IE. also fixed The other bug which I know about is that it butchers most of Alex's characters :p (try typing "Palla"). Fixed!

Give me feedback if you love it or hate it. :D This also eliminates the really crappy phpBB "Find a Username" feature.

These are some indicators that are used to help me diagnose what's going on, and they should also be helpful to you. In the completed version, I'll probably remove the first one.

- Inactive (you aren't doing anything yet)
- Observing (it knows you're typing, but is waiting until a good moment)
- Waiting on response
- Response received, no match
- Response received, look to the left :p

Note: I've tested this in FF and IE7.

So, when that orange light is next to Ams Jendob that means he is being lazy or just hasn't had the time to respond to my last PM? :P

No, it's only for sending PMs. ;) It has no relevance on reading PMs.

Alright, update: as far as I know, there are no more bugs. Let me know if you find any. New indicator light is up, check the main post. :)

You shouldn't be seeing the waiting one for more than a second unless the server is operating incorrectly.
