Well, as I've said, I will look around to it. I'm thinking of making it an option but further discussion is needed, methinks...

Deliberation on as to whether we make this an exclusive VIP function for testing purposes, whether it's released to the general public, what software to use (phpBB mods, shoutbox AJAX/Javascript/PHP scripts etc,) and such. We'll get back to you guys soon.

And no, you don't need to downloaded IRC.

well with the service I'd run it through, there is a flash based online one, and you can access it through an irc client.

This is just a bit of grammar nazi moment.

kk, so it says to become a VIP you can qualify by being
"
-a valued site contributor
...
-any other reason as deemed fit by the AFC administrators"

Wouldn't these technically be the same thing as...the AFC staff would be the ones who would decide who a "valued site contributor" is?
It is highly unlikely that you would be a "deemed fit" by the 'big cheeses' (couldn't resist, guys!) at AFC w/o being whatever a "valued site contributor" is...
*eyebrow*
That's just something that bothered me as a "trim the fat" language person. XDD
So...you could conceivably take your pick between de two and eliminate one bullet point.

well, you are right and wrong, you used to be a valued contributor by posting 1000 posts, but now you can't get it that way. but we are looking into making it if you submit something good you are a contributor. The other reasons could be just for sharing some important information or whatever. I dunno. I think it looks fine.

Like I said. It's my inner editor coming out and wreaking havoc. "Do you really need that? Do you really need that?"
;)
It looks a-ok to me. Just didn't know if things could be combined to make them more efficient!
I'm all into economical word usage, despite my tendency to ramble.

sorry to be impatient............but is something actually being done on this.....I probably could like start one at Geese, in barely any time, if I ask the one who made the chat at another forum how he did it, or I could just ask him to make it himself instead

Thanks for the suggestion, but there's other factors we're discussing at the moment, like who the box would be accessible to. It's not just the technical side.

I suggest it should only be open to the staff to beta test it in the beginning then it should be like the V.I.P room requirements.

Why not just open it to everyone?
There aren't that many members on at the same time here.
Chat is really only good with alot of people, so the more people the better.

I also made it already. Mostly I just wanted to see how long it would take to make.
If you want to test it out, I could pm the link to you, and password.
Its probably alot simpler than IRC too.
And you can give the password and link to whoever you desire. That is if you already havent made a chatroom(and are just deciding on who should get to use it)

I don't think you see the problem. We will make a forum chatbox, but first, we have other issues, then we have got to alpha test it(for the mods), then Beta(for VIPS), then we will release it.

Good luck with yours I tried that before it didn't work.

Oh well I give up then. Since Im confused by all the beta testing and such, and issues. But Im sure their important.


If anyone wants to chat, before the official one comes out, pm me.
It takes like 30 seconds to make an account, you barely have to give any information.
Spoiler:
Its made already why waste it

If not, then okay.

Mate, there are many things we have to take into consideration.

For example, security issues, we want something that is connected to the AFC database so you can safely use your AFC username without someone impersonating you, and for that we need either specialist software or to build something ourselves that can connect to the AFC database that stores usernames and cookie sessions etc. We have many other things to work on at the moment but a chatbox is in the queue.

Thanks for your patience.

We use Geesee at the other forum. But we have no problems with impersonations or anything, and people at that forum are jerkish.

If you make an account, no one can impersonate you, if you use your username. If you dont make your account, someone can impersonate you, but you could just tell everyone you havent joined chat. You could put something in your siggy, saying you havent joined chat. And everyone would know.....
