So... there I am... I'm going through my daily routine... emails, network invites... and network spam..., and the constant fight to avoid chasing down and investigating all the new technologies out there.... when I then turned to my favorite part of the day where I simply log in to RecruitingBlogs.com and say hellooooo in the chat room. When suddenly.... WHAM... it's not there. As the sweat begins to form.... and the fear begins to grip my chest..... I scroll and scroll and scrollllll (RBC has a loooong home page).... and nothing. Slouch likes to move stuff around.... so, it felt like Easter for a minute.
Then, it hit me... it's really NOT here. Luckily... on my journey back to the top of the page... I spotted the embedded comment where the chat room usually is and was put at ease.
See you all when it comes back online. (Looks like I'll be getting some extra work done today.)
I hadn't realised how much of a lurker I am until it went missing as well! :-)
I keep checking back to see if the function is up again, and I feel lost without it, can't eavesdrop on your conversations anymore!
The widget is provided by a third party called WidgetLaboratory.com Ning is undergoing a number of updates and as a result certain networks at certain times are being affected. I like the site better when it is there as well.
The new chat is back though it is very different than before. Ning made some changes to the way the site works so the old chat no longer will work. The new chat is a pop out box so it takes less space on the actual site. I'll try to dins a way to make the chat link more noticeable.
