Chat here working well

Postby Corey » Wed Nov 17, 2004 6:05 pm

Ok people, this modification was probably the hardest.... and the one that will probably be used the least :? ! I have added a chat feature. This java chat will connect to an IRC server and let users know who is online currently chatting on the bottom of the forum's page. I will be adding it to the title page after a few more tests. It works pretty well. Please let me know if you see anything 'strange' happening with it. Also, you are allowed to use other IRC clients (mirc etc), here is what you need ((if not using the java client!)
Server: irc.blitzed.org Port: 6667 Channel: #dartden

I will try to be available between 8-9 EST if anyone has any questions or would just like to 'chat'. I hope in time to use this feature as a tool for interviews or Q&A's with some of our prestigious users out there.

Enjoy --Corey

Well I took the feature of who is currently chatting off for now. It was causing the Home and Forum page to load very slow, if at all. The chat feature is really cool, who is online chatting I need to work on. I will update this post (and you will see. Who's chatting) when I make the fix. Sorry everyone --Corey

Chat feature here works really well !

I had someone PM me the other day and say "Chat here is no good....nobody's ever on it".

Well, to that I would say - What I see as the MAIN advantage of chat is to coordinate with another member on a time to go there and get a ton of communication done rapid fire that would otherwise need 5 times as much time and effort if you used the alternative - PM'S or emails.

Chat is awesome for quick back and forth questions and answers....not so much as an...ahem...alternative "entertainment" source. That stuff is best found...elsewhere.

Funny....a LOT of people want to look into the chat room and see the archived chat postings. Not many USE the chat, but boy do people like to peek in there and see what other people are saying. lol
