Chat -is it needed and how the heck do you use it?
« on: 05 November 2017, 14:05:50 »
Title says it all.  Do we need chat as well as the forum and how do you actually work the thing?  If I type in a reply I can see/find no way to post it using chat so what's the point.  Might be because I use IE10 as my browser, but anyone got any info/bright ideas on this?

Its working fine on my mozilla. I added it as fastest way of communication, to drag someone's attention, some short info/chat for someone. That beep is perfect and can be available for membergroups for which we decide to give permission to use it.

I made 3 chats:

1. That facebook like chat - SA Chat https://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=391961.0
2. Chat on Home page http://titanquestfans.net/index.php - pro shoutbox for public chatting between multiple users, with ability to ban/unban users https://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=269091.0
3. In private areas -  Staff area ,  Project managers ,  Recycle bin  - private for staff members only, simple shoutbox - product of SimplePortal which gives Home button http://titanquestfans.net/index.php and where we can manipulate with look of that page. https://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=1104

I guess if you don't want to create a discussion or just want to have an open chat with the other members then it's there. Although, nobody seems to really check it.

I am using the chat and it works perfectly for me also in Chrome. It is a very fast way to communicate with anyone.

Only problem with it is its stability and delay of messages. Sometimes it will give some text when bugged. Text message when is bugged is "undefined".

Okay, I think I've got how it works.  At least with Firefox.  Since I don't do anything other than forums, I'm pretty clueless for anything more "modern"  ;)

chat is fun factor, but sometimes it got bugged and dont replay the text.

i think few people use it because, most of users go to main foruns and not on homepage of the foruns, if you understand.
