Since it's a 10 minute difference and not a timezone difference, more than likely the time on your web server is incorrect as this is where the time would be pulled from.

You'll need to contact whoever you have web hosting with and ask them to fix the time.

I can't get it to display the smilies, they are replaced with nothing. However in the archive, they display as they should of in the main chat window. So... sorry I can't help ya, but.. there might be some issues in that area anyway.

suggestion

Hi guys,

I have a suggestion .

Is there any way to let the chat display an announcement each XX minutes ?
It's like an advertising shows on a Bold or just like the words written with (/me) command.

It will be good if you could considered it in your future adding list.

Thanks for the great Chat.
