I noticed that this forum has a nice feature where it shows which users are online (within 5 minutes).

What does everyone think about a chat feature when discussions are on a roll? Having an unscheduled chat with Sean every once and a while may be useful too.

Cheers!

I too would love a chat feature. We could even schedule weekly chats and when two of us happen to be on here at the same time we could always have conversations to brainstorm ideas.

However, if possible I would like to restrict the chat to registered members of the forum. I want us to be able to keep as much control as possible! Perhaps some type of flash application?

Hey, if we could have some chat software that could allow us to hold a chat in a controlled manner with only registered users perhaps we could even get a few exclusive chats down the road! Smile

There is now a chat -- You can connect via the site (registered users) or via an IRC client (though I don't know what server off-hand)

babcat, i think the link to the flash chat client is only visible on the subSilver template at the moment. Another thing worth pointing out is that Jowik's comment about proxy restriction still stands... the flash applet will still need to make an outgoing connection from your PC on the standard IRC ports which may be filtered by some proxies.

Edit:

The IRC server appears to be irc.icq.com, channel is #FizzX... if you want to download Mirc or something.

magnatrix,

Go to your profile and scroll down to the bottom part of the list of options. You can change the forum style down there. When you change it the chat button will appear.

My appologies to those who are missing the chat button on the default template. I missed the updates to this thread due to a problem i seem to have when viewing the boards from work, the new post flag does not appear for some reason. Dodgy proxying and multipath internet connection may cause a problem with the session or something.

drichardson, can you help with updating the Terayon2 template? how did you add the chat facility to subSilver?

Again, sorry for any confusion.

AE
