We have chat!

Old site died, wasn't salvageable, here's a maintained phpBB3 forum. Post about it here.

We have chat!

Postby gen_admin » Thu Jan 27, 2011 7:04 pm

We now have chat. It's right between the FAQ and Members links on the top bar that has the User Control Panel link. Note that as of now at least whatever you say there stays there for anyone who enters to see (registered users only.)

UPDATE: Note that the chat doesn't actually say who's IN the chatroom, just who is online (based on recent forum/chat activity), so that's a little confusing. Will work on it some more tomorrow, the 5 second update is a little too slow. Maybe try another chat, who knows, but it's already been great fun.

Games are coming next. :D

Is it strictly written chat, or can you opt to use voice? They had that feature at SMART and it was pretty cool. Not everyone wants to talk, or has a microphone/headset.

Voice chat would cost $$ for the software, I don't think there are any free ones, but I can take a double look if you guys really want.

Looking to improve the chat over the next couple of days, it's been so much fun to have already.

So Cal - the chat is 5 second refresh at the moment, go on give it a shot :)

i just said this on another thread...great minds think alike, right? :D

We had a good chat going on last night..I saw you were on site and hoped you would pop in too Bonita.

You can keep up TT...You can take all the time you need to write. It gets hard to read everything when there are 6 people all typing anyways.

Now see, donations could pay for voice chat, and that wouldn't obligate Ratch to anyone. The one we had at SMART was voice and text, either or....Maybe something for down the road...It is cool hearing people's voices, expressions, accents, etc...also makes it a hell of a lot easier to keep up and tell a story, etc.

I did pop in...didnt want to interupt the conversation and was about to go to bed...

I have that old lady voice.. well they say that on black-ops online play. Not sure I want you guys to think of me as that.

Chat is properly no longer readable at all by non-registered (logged in) users.

I think it's safe to move this from global announcements now.

NOTE:

The who's online thing in the chat isn't perfect. Sometimes a user will be in there and their name will not show up. Anyway, a user can walk in at any time. Like I said before, treat is as public as you would posting on the forum. At least guests can't read it anymore. It's a simple web-based chat addition to a forum, and as such there is only so much perfection you can expect out of it. A more perfect system would require detachment from the forum altogether and a more elaborate chat server system.

I think the chat works fine. I know sometimes I am chatting in there and my name doesn't show up... don't know why, but I don't think it's a big deal either.

There, now only the last 2 things said in the chat are visible when new users enter, no more flushing the chat.
