Ok I was clear I thought till today... Now I have chats up but a different username then last time, I cleared my cache every night, and delete everything in my history... I did my part Torn now do YOURS and fix this bug coding!!
Edit: OR TURN OFF THE DAMN CHATS UNTIL IT IS FIXED!!
Edit 2: oh so by using caps I am whining? and bitching?? I used caps, to make a bold statement can't help but it's a fact chats should be turned off if they do not work correctly!! Any game owner knows this, and knows when there is glitches in the coding, it can be easily to succumb to people abusing it!! Oh and explanation marks can't be used? Since when can't I end a sentence using such?
Who is actually whining here?
Ahh, come on. Finally I had hoped for some real response from staff, but this is just stupid!
You can't seriously pretend that using mobile to disable chat resolves the issue at hand?????
The issue isn't that the faction chat is being spammed by random'ers and me reading it, it's those random people misusing and in fact gaining access to Faction discussions that should be kept f**kING away from other factions prying eyes.
Staff coming here and telling us to disable chat is seriously one of the most stupid additions I've seen by staff lately. And you wonder why there is so much hatred towards staff in Torn?
Give us status updates. Why is it that an issue that appeared suddenly can't be fixed? It HAS to be caused by some change in either server setup or code at the day it happened. FIX IT! It can't be that f**king hard, unless the entire Torn team and staff is completely incompetent.
Sorry for the words, but the last post was just the throw of the dice.
19/12/12 - Chat issues 2
Chat issues frustratingly still exist. The issues were caused by a huge group of changes made last Tuesday to fix all of the other site issues (I'm sure you notice how smooth the site is now). Unfortunately, the cause is not determined and it's very strange. While we want to completely rewrite the chat system, this system needs to be fixed ASAP so we're going to have to bring in an expert to take a further look.
This is a public post by ched over 2 weeks ago. The problem apparently isn't as easy to fix as you seem to think it is. I was merely giving you an option to temporarily fix the situation to make it easier on yourselves. Do it or not, I'm just trying to help you ease your apparent anxiety and trepidation over a chat issue.
I was also referring to mobile mode from your pc/laptop, not logging in from your phone.
hi im having problems with this as well as my name comes up differnt and im in differnt fractions chats and jobs , most of the time the chat doesnt work for me when my name is nonrmal ive ask the qustion thinking i was band from chat but its not just this problems that most people are have hopeful it will get fix to back to normal thank you
FYI - Following my earlier posts, I wanted to inform staff members that today my Username seems to be back to normal in the chat boxes, and I have experienced no further issues; despite 1 unknown attack!
I don't know if this means that the problem is resolved, so may I please ask out of courtesy, if TC staff will please give us all an update of progress (even if this is to inform us all that there is still 'Work In Progress').
I personally would appreciate & expect this overdue update (and apologise if one has gone out already which I have missed).
Thank you in advance for a response to this request.
PS - still a great game, so not having a go at the staff with this message, just getting a tad frustrated....
09/01/13 - Chat problems fixed
We believe the name changing issue on chat to now be fixed, thanks for your patience. We're also working on a completely new chat system, changing the back-end completely. This will be the base for a huge chat update which allows much more customisation. The base will be complete in around a month, the following updates which will improve chat will follow shortly after this.
Every night(?) just after midnite TC time one of our faction members Jinkali  posts 3 identical messages in the faction chat window. He has no idea this is happening; mostly he is not logged into TORN at this time. Nothing serious - just a little annoying - but it may be indicative to similar chat/sync issues.
