We need a chat. :P
« on: July 22, 2014, 01:01:39 AM »
We need chat feature, something like a shoutbox, as this will help the community aspect of the site but also will be really useful to use during online game events we have.

So, the options I know are installing a normal shout box ( -_- ) , or using a XAT chat, or this new thing I discovered:
https://www.spot.im/

Spot.IM seems to be like installing an IM on the whole site. It's still new, but because of that it actually uses new technologies and seems to work well overall (and has good features) .

So what's your opinion? And if you know any other option, please feel free to suggest it.

UPDATE Testing the spot.im chat on the forum atm. Let's see how it works. Also, please remember to log in with that has the name you want to display. I'm using my Twitter account, for example, since that one has my nickname instead of my real name.

So now that we've been using this chat for a while, I'm just wondering what are your opinions?

I'm finding it a bit clumsy to be honest. I had to log in using my Google account instead of N-Masters, notifications don't show the messages or send an e-mail or any other kind of notification, and the whole thing is just pretty unclear overall. I have no idea what could be a better option though.
Level this thing up!

Here's an alternative I've been looking at:
https://www.discordapp.com

What do you think? (also, invoking [member=1908]Gingaman Prime[/member] 😛)



Testing the widget here. :P
