Changing email address

Is there a way for people to change the email address in their profile? We went through a rebrand and have a new extension for emails. Folks who have been around since we started in Ohyay are in there with the old extension. It's creating some complications with setting up breakout rooms.

Migrating our Ohyay Workspace to a Private Server

It was devastating to read that Ohyay will be shutting down at the end of the year. Your work remains exceptional and our organization would not have survived the pandemic without your amazing platform. Is there any way we can migrate our workspace to a private server? Is any of the software available in Open Source? Or, can someone help us recreate our space on our Word Press site? Hoping to find a way to keep what you've started going.

spelling bee [mugglenet]

hello, I bought a ticket to the [spell bee] contest organized by mugglenet last week and the message I got to my e-mail address yesterday confused me a bit. It was written here that if I opened an account, I could join the broadcast. However when I asked Mugglenet they said I don't need an account but I wanted to ask you guys just to be sure. Will Spelling Bee live stream be on this site?

Restrict Access to rooms via tags, while enabling moving without Rooms Panel.

Hello there, I have a workspace that is accessible to people without signing in (SECURITY set to "Allow Anonymous Users"). I'm using tags in combination with group invites to restrict access to certain rooms (with Room Menu>SECURITY>"Restrict Access User Tags" for restricted rooms ). This works fine when navigating through the rooms panel, but I want a more immersive space, so I want to let users move by clicking "Action Buttons" to teleport themselves into the other rooms. When I do this, the tag restriction does not apply and any user who clicks the button can move to the restricted room. I tried Breakout Buttons, but the result is the same. Is there another Element that's more suitable for letting users move themselves to other rooms? I do not want to hide the room/button (I want users to know about the layout of the space, I don't want to hide it), rather I would like it to show the same message explaining the restricted access, that appears, when clicking a restricted room in the room panel.

Hello i have a Qustion for Video end action

I'm going to make an action that automatically moves on to the next room after the video. However, after the video, the end action does not work. In this case, should I utilize a custom Java script? In Google properties, video ended always appears to be false. also im using WebM codec video

Room password protected

Is it possible to have just 1 room password protected and not the whole workspace? Ideally I want to create a landing page, and for people to proceed to the next room they need to enter a password.

rtmp vs. screenshare quality

Hi, I want to stream a theater play and was wondering if there is a video-/audio quality or stability benefit choosing rtmp over screenshare? There are moments in the play, where the attendees can interact through polls and etherpads with the live audience and performers. Right now, we are using rtmp and there is a noticable delay of some seconds, but if there are quality benefits with rtmp, I would rather work around the liveness and choose video quality and the safety of a video buffer over liveness/less delay with screenshare. I am also curious what happens with either method when bandwith is scarce on the attendees side.

Dim Lights

Hello! I am working on a space that has two actions buttons to dim the "lights" and then to turn them back on. My question is, is there a way to change the amount the lights are dimmed so that the audience can still see the room a little without it being pitch black background? If so, how would I do this? Thank you, Rebekah Torres
