Chatty checks the API twice before reporting a stream as offline, but if both checks return false data, then a false offline report will happen.
This single-developer game turned into a much more complex system.Back then I was assuming online communities would be represented by well mannered and respectful people.Well most people were, but some wanted attention, constantly pushed the boundaries or needed to release real-world pressure into something. I never thought I would have to code something this complex when I started building Chit Chat City. I hated how most online games only lets you pick pre-drawn stuff and change colour and call it customization. Over the span of a few months, I started off coding an online chat room, then added items and avatars.In the past year, the player base and income went down greatly and the move towards the mobile platforms became a must, so I focused mainly on creating the CCC apps for i OS and Android, hoping it would give a second breath to the game. I had to re-code most of the game and optimize to run on mobile platforms.
