Thanks to a little bit of coding trickery, the DBSTalk chat room can now be accessed on your mobile phone. If you would like to try it out, visit our chat room at http://chat.dbstalk.com. There is also a link to the chat room in the Quick Links drop down menu at the top of the forum. You must be a member of the forum to access the chat room.

Early testing reports have shown that the chat room works on the iPhone, iPad and Droid. Other phones are supported although we haven't had verification if they work. Please be aware that some models may not work.

Thanks.

I do know that it's not expected to work on Blackberry. But since that's not my platform of choice, well done Chris and David!!

Looks good on the iPad and iPhone4!

Would it be possible to change the color of the pre-login text? Sometimes it's nice to read it just to catch up on the conversations. It's almost impossible on either and also the laptop.

The white text is the same as on the regular chatroom. I don't know if there's much we can do about it. I know in the regular chat you can highlight the text to read it... I don't know if that trick works on mobile devices.

It sorta works. . . not nearly as well as on the PC.

On the iPad, the chat background is divided into 4 'quadrants- 2x2' and as the text approaches a quadrant change the text fades further - so even highlighted by dragging the copy tabs, it's hard to read at two places.

The screen size on the iPhone isn't affected by this.

I just tried a couple of times on my Android based phone, twice I lost connection to the server and once the browser crashed.

I'm connected to the net via WiFi right now on my Samsung Captivate (Galaxy S).
ID10T or PEBCAK, there can be more than one...
