I saw that your edits don't appears on the Top Contributors list. I though they had fixed this bug long ago, but I contacted the support and they said they have been looking into it for some time and are working on it.
If you weren't aware of this problem, sorry for bothering you, but I think the feature is motivating and helpful to see if there's a lot of activity on the wiki, and I was always kind of disappointed when I was ignored by the counter. We appreciate your edits and the answers to my comments ;)
Also, would you be interested in joining our chat on Sunday, 5.30 pm GMT? (I know, time zone differences...)
Last time, it was just me and The Strange Traveler, sometimes it doesn't work out because no-one has time or there is nothing to discuss.
I should be available at 5:30. I've never actually used the chat system before (I'm new to wikia), but I'm assuming an icon will pop up in the "Live! Chat" section, next to the "Start a chat" button. I was online at the time last Sunday, but forgot about the chat, so I didn't think to try and join it :/
Yes, if a chat is live you will see "Join A Chat" where it says "Start A Chat" now. It's easy to miss it if you don't know about it ahead of time because there is no notification anywhere except right there that there is a chat going on.
The chat can go on as long as there are people who are still able to chat. If you leave halfway through and there are still people in the chat you can rejoin, but if everybody leaves you have to start a new one. Also, there is no log of the chat after it ends, so if anything interesting is said that we want to have a record of it will have to be recorded elsewhere.
I guess we could copy paste the chat log, or make screenshots, if we wanted to do so.
You can start a chat at any time, but people can only join if they are online at the same time. Last time we chatted for an hour or so? That was pretty long.
The chat is a "Labs Feature", so it is something Fandom/Wikia is experimenting with. That's why it isn't perfect.
They even invite you to do give feedback, so I already suggested a few improvements, like it making it more noticeable when there is a chat going on.
