PostSubject: Chatbox    30/10/2012, 3:51 pm

From what I hear you all have had talk about this before but I want to give a good reason why we should have chatbox. Not only does Forumotion provide you of a chatbox it has many features I'm happy of, a concern has popped up that now-a-days most People look for a forum with chatboxes yes I know of the use of Skype but if the new Mende has never heard of Skype or can't download it for any reason I'd at least like them to have a chatbox. It can be used to get fast responses and be maintained easier instead of needing to download Skype which in some cases are not available to some people that like chatboxes. Chatboxes in formation come with easy to use commands and not only that but an easy For an example:

/cls (can clear archieves and chat in case of lag or over fill by mods or admins)

/ban [username here] (easy to use banning system and can un ban by command /un ban [username here] or by looking at ban list with command /banlist allowed only by mods and admins)

If a user is Afk it shows It after a period time it moves them to 'away' list and that I'd good to show the moderator they aren't there at the moment.

A good command is /mod [username here] which downside I believe only admins I think can do it but it is good if you need someone to act as mod (only on chat person(s) have mod powers) to watch over others for period of time.

Chatbox offers emotoes, font change, etc. And has auto refresh plus bt clicking the name "chatbox" on upper left hand side it will open in new tab if wanted not only that but if you miss something the archieves button allows you to check back previous messages pretty far.

If any questions about forumotion features or it's admin control panel ask me :)

Sounds cool, I wouldn't be ageist us putting one up. But I don't see it replacing Skype. On the other hand it would be nice for us to be able to talk to new members. It certainly would be faster then talking to them in the introduction section and we wouldn't have to add people to Skype who may not stick around.

I give this idea 4/5 Flutershys:

I agree with Arualsti, It would be nice, but I don't reckon I'd hardly ever use it, everypony I talk to is on skype. Second, at least from my experiences with forum chat boxes, The cheaper ones/free ones seem to have a problem loading messages, like, it will take a few minutes, or you have to reload the page. I'm not saying their all like that, but, in my experience, that's what happened. I'm all for it if there's a free chatbox that won't glitch out like that though. :3

Actually Forumotion chatbox is nicer then most forums chatboxes. Hence the "auto refresh" button which will automatically refresh chatbox every few seconds and messages once type only take few seconds to get to person depending on connection.

Plus, not everyone even HAS a Skype. A Chatbox WOULD be useful to people without a Skype.

Well then My little bronies, you asked. And I have giveth.

On the homepage of the site, scroll to the bottom of the page. You will find your chat box there.

With that, I shall lock this thread.
