Chat Box

Post#1 » Wed Jul 22, 2015 1:15 am

There is a new PXP Chat box that I've added in the forum header. It will pop up a little chat box.

Try it out and give me any feedback. If you see any spam in it, let me know right away via PM.

And by feedback you mean see how quickly we can break it, right?

Spammers may find it. They did when I ran a chat box on another site I had. Maybe it'll stay off their radar for a while.

Well. It does not scale if you resize the window at all. Is there a way around that? It seems kinda small right now.

A time stamp might be nice to see when the last time someone replied

It's more like s shoutbox atm. Which is fine, those are fun. Don't really see it like a chatbox atm though.

It shouldn't be a separate window. It should be embedded like the mumble viewer.

In a perfect world, I would agree. However, we can't regulate/moderate the chat 100% of the time so therefore, someone could potentially start spamming it/making offensive remarks and it would take time before an admin could get around to clearing it.

This is actually kind of a test. It's really popular I could probably put up a real chat window but it might use a lot of overhead and cost us some money in bandwidth.

Okay the shoutbox is gone and we are running a real chat program. It updates every 10 seconds to save bandwidth so I think it's manageable. If the spambots catch up with it we will have to require a registration but for open. Just type your name and click "chat".
