Title: Chat room, or no?
Post by: cat-dog on Sep 01, 2006, 01:45 PM
With the advent of the shoutbox lounge, is there anyone still using the chatroom for any intensive purposes?

Just thought I'd ask.

I miss the chat room gatherings that took place some evenings.  It is more private.  Long live the chat-room!

I second that Ms Vee.  We had some pretty good chats in there.  Fun times....

I vote for keepin' it.  It does seem more like "chat" in the chatroom vs on the shoutbox to me IMHO.  Thanks for askin :).

I agree with the opinions expressed above. Keep the chat.

Do you guys still use the chat room? I see the shoutbox is fairly sporadic at the best of times and don't usually venture into the actual chat room.
  Do you want to have a regular meeting time in the chat or is it hit and miss? I like having somewhere to say shit randomly without interfering with any threads.

Hey Cat-Dog  8)

i cant remember what night that was but it is possible i was surfing under a proxy and forgot to turn it off. That might of been the reason but like i was saying i will try again.

Peace and pot and good will Cat-Dog  :passone:

The shoutbox hardly gets used these days. I've seen an entire day go by in a couple of shouts. The chat room gave me errors the last time I tried it.

Does anyone remember when Cory And Trevor were in there with us? That was some good times, they told us why they left the show and alot more good things to know, good guys. Good old times. Hope I can talk to them again sometime.

hmmmmm, I have never been there but am going to go in the chat room a lot from now on.  I say keep it.  I am on dial up and am not sure how it will respond to that but....  will see.

Where'd it go?  Dead topic maybe, but a chat or shout box could find a few ORGees running off at the mouth, including myself(don't say I didn't warn)

Any chance of them setting up again?

I am not sure exactly what happened to the chat room.  But the shout box had to go away when we had to change and update the servers. There was still hope of having the shout box coming back however, once more add-ons could be added to the new servers. But I do not know if we can or not.  None of the regular mods have access to the servers to do this.  We had a game arcade that was fun as well.

The arcade can work with this release of SMF, it would just require some testing.

http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=36 (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=36)

And there's two Shoutbox options that work with SMF 2.0 RC3

Ajaxchat looks pretty good.

http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=1319 (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=1319)

And this one, not so sure.

http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=1295 (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=1295)

But like David mentioned, it would have to be implemented by CD when he's got time to test them out.

Thanks for the feed back fellas.  I'm not sure who is interested in these applications.  I assume a shout box is much like Twitter, a random, but lineal comment loop that would drop older posts as new ones replace reusable space. 
CD is top dog.  I hope we don't disturb him without considerably more members tugging the chain for one or both.  Cheers  :beermug: :beermug:
