in reply to FullPage Chatterbox ... link?

Yes, the documentation seems to be going out of date. I just typed in Chatterbox Clients and bam, just like that, I got the list of chatterbox clients. But fullpage chat is not listed there. A little more searching brings up Other CB Clients, which does list fullpage chat. The two lists differ in a couple ways as well.

On a completelty related matter, why isn't the documentation kept as up-to-date as possible? If the answer is 'because there is too much to keep track of updating', then that tells me that the information isn't organized well-enough :) Considering that some information is posted in more than one place and each version is different leads to some disappointment...

    Part of the problem is that the people working on the documentation aren't the same people making the code changes (for the most part). Then there's also the fact that a lot of documentation is somewhat duplicated, and it requires that a member of the documentation clan see a change and remember which documentation it will affect, and then change it all. So far as I know there is no general outline of all documentation--something I'd especially like to see written (but note that I've been inactive for the last couple of months due to moving).

    Therefore, the best thing to do when you note some documentation which is out of date is to mention it to the site documentation clan. If you find that you're doing this a lot, you could request to join sdc.
