Chat broken? Edit
I don't know if other wikis are having trouble with thier chatrooms, but everytime I try to open it up on the South Park Wiki, it crashes the browser. I've tried with Safari, Firefox, and IE. And it's not just me; other users have also complained about not being able to open it.
Can anybody help me out?08:01, November 2, 2011 (UTC)
- This is an ongoing problem for many wikis. The latest discussion about it can be found at: w:c:community:User blog:Flamefang/Chat: What's killing it?. For future reference, this Help Wiki is where Help documents are stored. It is not the place to seek assistance. In fact, it might have been days or weeks before anyone happened along here to see your request. You should seek assistance at the Community Central forums. — SpikeToronto 23:52, November 2, 2011 (UTC)
Posting in chat Edit
How do I post in chat? The page doesn't say, there are no buttons, and if I press enter my test erases but on the conversation above, my post is not shown. Shinigami CHOP! —This unsigned comment is by Puppy1 (wall • contribs) 00:47, April 24, 2012. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!
- It’d be better, Puppy, to ask this question at w:c:community:Forum:Support Requests, the support forums at the Community Central Wiki.

Okay, thanks. I have it semi-fixed, it works on Internet Explorer for me. Its actually an advantage now, Shinigami CHOP! —This unsigned comment is by Puppy1 (wall • contribs) 23:26, April 29, 2012. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

It is possible for admins to enable or disable chat at Special:WikiFeatures. I would like to know if there is a way to view a history of changes. For example, let's say a bureaucrat enables a chat on his wiki, but one of several people they have appointed as administrators keeps disabling it.
How could the bureaucrat find out who disabled it, and when they did it? Does wikia keep a history of these changes which bureaucrats can view? Otherwise it becomes difficult to keep the chat active and to institute consequences if admins disable it without permission against policies. +Yc 05:41, March 14, 2013 (UTC)
- Enabling and disabling features creates log entries in Special:Log/wikifeatures. (These also show up in Special:RecentChanges.)
Is it possible to add functions to the chat, such as a /me type of feature, bots, change the welcom text, spam filters etc?
