Chatbox

Not sure if this is the right place, but is there a way to read past messages in the Chatbox? Ones that have scrolled off? Someone recently posted a link I wanted to check out but forgot to copy and paste elsewhere.

No. It was something about a map. Saw it in passing, but by the time I was done actually playing my games, I forgot to go back.

Yes! That was it. Cool, thanks.

Though I suppose my original question still stands. Is there a way to view the Chatbox history?

I don't know. Probably not, unless and admin has those sort of powers. Sorry.

I posted this one in there recently. But, I don't think you can view past messages. Might be a good thing though, for us addicts to hide how often we are really on the site!

There isn't a way to look at back messages. Even we don't keep them all! We have a longer period that we can go through past messages for but keeping them all would be unmanageable anyway ;)

oh wow, that map is interesting but just looking at it it's giving me an headache! To think about good old Europe as lego bricks freaks me out :shock: I'd rather play on the normal map where I now where Norway or Ankara are without having to really look for them.

Anyway, really interesting how the brain reacts to spatial information.....
