Request for features for the advanced chatterbox frameset at
  1. Add target="_top" to the other user links in node=showotherusers
  2. Remove the NORESIZE attribute from the first frame tag so the input frame is resizable.

    My suggestons:
    1. Add target="_top" to the message inbox messages
    2. Remove the meta refresh, and add a refresh button
    or have the refresh be a configurable setting(&meta=sec&button)

    "cRaZy is co01, but sometimes cRaZy is cRaZy".
                                                          - crazyinsomniac

      I think the refresh is great... that way you will get to see what everyone is saying... like if you were away for a minute and came back - you dont remember to refresh it - dont worry! it's already done! =)

      However, couple of things I would suggest adding/changing:
      1. Move the blank for entering comments down in the frame where the "submit" button it
      2. Make the text window scrollable - for a short time at least (capability of reading past comments while AFK)
      Other than that, I think the whole thing is outstanding... now, where's the source? :)

    There appears to be a bug in the show private messages frame(ie the js cb message inbox).

    After you've checked off a message, and it comes time to refresh again(30 sec), i am prompted(in IE5) that the page cannot be refreshed without resending the information. Please fix it.
