I have some ideas about that, but I need to know what is compatible with phpbb forums. I have an IRC server program, but IRC is old and kinda out dated. Some suggestions would be nice from some of you more Tech savvy people out there? Any other options?
Taurus357 created a new chat room last night to replace the one that we have been using. We've already updated the links in the Chat Room Sticky in the Lounge. It's an IRC based chat room, the only thing is how would we imbed something like that into the web space that we have with this new forum? I am sure that Jones can do it, or GlockMan as well, we just need the access.
Don't see a need to invest so much time into a feature that few use as it is. I re did the chat room last night because it finally started to get enough users to warrant it, but think there is too much other junk to get done before takin on this project. Just my two cents.
Honestly, more people would use it if it was an addition to the forum web space. I think that the fact being the old chat room was so unstable really turned some people off on it. This new one is great. It doesn't kick you out if you type a 300 word paragraph and try to post it. Something like that would be awesome for the forum as long as it was user friendly and you could bounce between the forum and the chat room without losing posts or having to re-login to each everytime you bounced back and forth.
