[SOLVED] Chatbox - Your thoughts?

Post by [ADMIN] Kelly on Sat Mar 16, 2013 5:23 am

I'm unsure what to do with the chatbox at the moment. We're pushing out the IRC channel #MediaCollision and as it is the chatbox isn't used incredibly much. So I'd like your input; there's 3 options (listed below) or if you have another thought, post that! Smile Options:


Option 1 - Keep the chatbox right where it is
Pretty much else explanatory; keep the chatbox as is, where it is. This would help you remember/notice the chatbox, but take up a bit more general space on the forums.


Option 2 - Move the chatbox to the bottom
Second thing we can do is move the chatbox to the bottom of the forum. This would take up less space to view the forum, but also make you less likely to log into the chatbox.


Option 3 - Remove the chatbox altogether
Media Collision will have it's own IRC that will be up and active hopefully soon Very Happy The chatbox won't be completely useless, but because of the IRC it will be less frequently used. So we can remove it altogether and have primary advertising for the IRC, instead, or the above two options.

Well one of my favorite chatboxes were the xat chat box that can be found http://xat.com/ it's really nice. But if you can't change the chatbox, just keep it where it's at Razz

SM had a chat box, right? Now it's gone because IRC > chat box. Pretty much sums it up.

I'm really not sure how much more customizable the chatbox is, to be honest. I know you "can" tweak it some, but that involves knowledge in CSS, in which I do not have much of.

Yea. I was wondering a way to try to do as SM has it by editing the images at the top ("home" "calender" "faq" "search" "memberlist") etc. and include one for IRC. In general not a fan of the lowercase letters. Just have to figure out 'how' XD

I say Option 2, But also fine with Option 1, I think for the time being it is a good thing to have, as not all visitors on the forum will want to go to IRC to make an account.

I'd probably go with 3 (irc only). Either way I'd suggest making the irc more accessible (i.e. Smokinmils' link up top).

You have a point there Drakan, but on the other hand, one isn't forced to register to use irc, and moreover someone who will log in to the chatbox and wants to talk will probably be willing to use irc anyways.

Cele, yeah I'm trying to figure out how to do that. But first I'd like us to get our final deciding theme chosen then I'll mess with that, have a link at the top :3

As for the point Drakan made, I'll make it similar to how other sites have it... The link will be at the top for something such as Mibbit where all they have to do is just type a nickname in and hit connect. If they need any assistance there's enough people who are familiar with how it works that they should be set in assisting Smile

Seems many are in favor of having the chatbox moved to the bottom or removed, so let's try to move it at the bottom to begin with. When the forums gets bigger, we'll try to advertise IRC and the chatbox more. If it doesn't work out, we can always scrap it and stick to IRC I love you
