    The chat box will now show real time updates of what's happening on the forum. Like new threads, new posts etc.

    Another really bad idea, IMHO.

    There was almost nothing going on and now there is too much information, lol. With all the updates on posts and registrations, etc. any chat between members is lost in the onslaught.

    Agreed. It's getting crowded there. The activity stream should be displayed separately, not inside the chat box. Turning it off for now.

    Happy to fix.

    Good move. It is interesting to see the activity stream but one can view "today's posts" or look at the Forum page to see latest posts, and newest members do show up at the bottom of the Forum page as well. Thank you for trying it in the chat box and for recognizing the down side too.
