    RE: Chat Room

    I expect I'll get IRC set up before the end of the week. I just need an efficient way to get a system for the forum's usernames set up since the old chat system will no longer be used, and this will take some research, in addition to finding a suitable web client since most people will not want to have to download an IRC program to access the chat room.

    RE: Chat Room

    Soooo....About that web client? Just curious as well. It would be nice to have the ability to talk with other members in real time now that more members are joining. Of course it goes without saying that there's no rush to get it done.

    RE: Chat Room

    Yeah, I realise it's WAY overdue. In any case, I've figured out a pretty nifty way to get IRC working with the members online counter at the top working too. However, I didn't code that so I'll need to request permission from the creator. In any case, I've almost got everything set up for IRC, at least in terms of core functionality.

    I've got a lot of things I need to do. I think I'll update the changelog thread.

    RE: Chat Room

    Cahtroom when you have a forum? doesnt that defeat the object of a forum? no one will use it if you have a chatroom.

    just my thoughts
    My posts contribute nothing to the forum. Please disregard them.

    RE: Chat Room

    We had a chatroom before. We used the forum then too.
    "It turned out that the ghost was just Mr. Finley, who ran the amusement park. The spooky part is that, as soon as the ghost appeared, the teenagers' dog began to speak! And it spoke in a tortured parody of human speech: 'relp me, Raggy,' it would say. 'I am an abomination and rould re rilled. Rill re, Raggy.'"

    Don't worry about whocky. Even a spambot could write more comprehensive posts than this guy.

    RE: Chat Room

    Chat rooms even on popular forums are quite inactive. They serve very little purposes. In fact, I have tried it on mine... it was set up by my old tech admin to talk with me during working on my forum. We both use MyBB. Somehow the chat room took so much server CPU cycle that my host put a limit on my account until I shut off the chat room and uninstalled it.

    I would vote no on having a chat room on a forum.

    RE: Chat Room

    Why are you so negative, Ram? Back when the chat room was here, it was used a lot and many members enjoyed it. The fact it hasn't worked on your forum which has much less activity than mine doesn't mean your experiences apply to everyone else's. You have my personal guarantee that at least 90% of those who had used the chat room would want it to make a return. The reason why the chat room was taken off in the first place was because of the CPU usage, and you'd know that if you had read related threads.

    Anyway, I almost have the chat room sorted out now. I've just got to figure out a few things. I'm sure it will be up by the end of this month, but most likely much sooner. This new chat room will have absolutely no impact on the server.
