we need a live chat function!

Just a wee thought. Sometimes, often times, I see people online here and I think to myself: "Self, I'd like to talk with that person right now."

I wonder what that would do to bandwidth and other expenses?

Well, since it's your idea, we figure you can cover that part...

Re: we need a live chat function!

I imagine that there could be something like a skype connection for registered  people concurrently online to make an easy connect with.  In that way, there would be no relationship to bandwidth here.

Re: we need a live chat function!

I had seen something on another forum, there is a chatroom that just links to a irc channel (so you enter the irc via webbrowser when you logged in into the forum), maybe this is the easyer way but I dont know if PunBB supports that kind of stuff...


In reality it is Ha,Ro,Ha,Ro... ~Sensei~

Re: we need a live chat function!

IRC was tried from here a few years back - I suspect the moderators just ended up taking carp with random wierdos.

( I know because....)

;-)
- You could just include a skype ID on user info though.

Skype won't allow for multiple person discussions, I don't think.

It looks like Dust's link works well. I even chatted with Chris some. He showed me that I can change the cryptic name it gave me to something more personable by typing /nick radi0gnome

Re: we need a live chat function!

Charles you need to type

#BBQ


in the Channel before you login.. so that you get to the right chatroom which is #BBQ


if you do find yourself in the wrong chatroom you can join #BBQ by typing

/join #BBQ

Up to ten at a time, actually. Wouldn't be worth much if it didn't.

We tried something like that a few years ago within PunBB. Unfortunately spammers infiltrated to the point my server shut everything down. So, it was deleted.

Re: we need a live chat function!

Now everyone will know how slow I am at coming up with wise things to say (that's 2 kinds of wise - smart, and smart-ass)

[Does that make me dumb and dumber?]

At least with the chat, if you say anything dumb, it's very impermanent, unless someone went through the extra steps of capturing it... and then unethically publishing it (that happened on the didjeridu email list in the late '90's, it wasn't a chat, but it can happen). It loans itself to a more conversational style of communicating.

Re: we need a live chat function!

#BBQ



Just to be clear...

It is a Public Chat Room.

On a Public IRC Channel.

What you say in there is in the Public Domain.


-----------------------------------------------------
What you say in a PM or Private Channel..

is between the two Chatters.

Re: we need a live chat function!

What about having a regular time to chat? Like friday evening after practice or something. Would cause people more often to stop by if they know there is somebody in
