Chatbox???

Post by Vicksnonperformer »

Would it be a waste of time to have a chatbox on the forums? Or would it be too much of a hassle?

Show me a phpBB board with a cool chat feature and we will consider it. The only one's I've seen a quite lame looking. This is a popular one, but like I said it's big, bulky and pretty ugly IMO.

Look at the bottom of this page.

Deeds, I think he was talking about inside the forum section of our site... At least I hope he didn't miss the one on the home page. There are a few that use the same phpBB credentials in the chat area as the forum. Sort of a single sign on type thing. Sort of how envygamer is setup. However believe bullets is using the CMS system to do the DB integration between the chat box and the forum. That and he's using a multi-collumn template, where as we are using a single fixed width template.

I've been looking for one that can be hidden in the lower status bar, sort of like how it is on facebook. I've got one on my blog. It's really nice. You can hide it when you're not interested and pop it up when you are.

Yep somethin like that would be cool but I could live without it. It would be nice to see some classics pass through a chat. And I figered the insult box should be just that.

K, this may be a bit much, but something similar and less intrusive maybe.

I wonder whether one of these would help with problems that occur occasionally on the website or on the server. Probably have to be linked to Gator's mobile phone though.
