I've made a bunch of improvements to the chat feature. The most visible changes are:

There were also a bunch of minor changes or bug fixes or things that only affect certain administrative groups.

Note also that some things were intentionally not "fixed":

Previously I had made but not announced a fix that prevents an unclosed <!-- from hiding subsequent items.

    Cool. And while I realize I could write or customize a client to handle this case for myself, I'm interested in knowing how many people get bitten by "/msg belg4mit, what about foo?"

    Hi Tye, Is this code available? I know that everydevel.com has nodeballs available, one of which is the ChatterBox nodeball (as emessage, I believe).

    Are you going to sync your new changes to their nodeball?

    And more generally, is there some sort of community of people sharing nodeballs? I'm interested in getting a site together running Everything, but most of the work I would do is already done by perlmonks.org. Do I have to reimplement all of that, or is available in some way?

    Thanks, loosifer (yep, I'm a newbie here)

      No, I am not synching any changes with any other stuff. Perl Monks was already out of sync with Everything else. There are some who hope to resync, but I'm not working on it (though I am documenting what I do in hopes that will help them).

      I hear E2 has a hugely revamped messaging system and key E2 developers have access to all of Perl Monks' code. So others are free to do those things. (:
