Return of the Question Time LiveChat

Firstly, my apologies for this having taken as long as it has.

For those who don’t know the history, the QuestionTime LiveChats were run using CoverItLive. They decided to bring in a new charging scheme which caught us (and many others, including Guido) in its net, so we dropped it.

Having tried out a variety of alternatives; some free, some with a small cost, we think we’ve found one that’s not too bad.

There is a trial version installed over on another server called so that if we break it when we’re testing, the main site is not affected.

Even if you haven’t taken part in the LiveChats before, we’d be grateful if you could head over there for a few minutes, create an account on that machine (option at the bottom of each sidebar) and give it a go please?

Please leave any comments in the LiveChat session over there. I’ll leave it active for a few days to give everyone a chance to play.

Thanks in advance

    Damn! If it works I might have to start watching Question Time again. 🙂

    Just been over – seems to work OK.

    Great news. Thanks, ASE. But it’s closed now? Or do I need to register in full?

      That’s interesting. I didn’t close it, the app must have timed out. When I went back just now it did indeed say “Closed” but I only had to type in it to re-open (probably an Admin perk). I’ll try to work out what that timeout period is, although it won’t affect us…
