Chat for friends

Post by levy on March 18th 2013, 9:17 am

Ok , I come with my first suggestion , I thing 90% of Forumotion users have facebook ,and they have a friends chat , so with that I come .
That ideea will be installed in User Preferences or in "Friends & Foes" , here is the exemple added in friends & foes

.

After activate in the right bottom you will see a simple table with your friends ,sorry but I don't have enought time to put avatar and at Leeloo


Sorry for advertise of users , at they /i thinked first Smile ,when you want to chat with one ,you will see other table where is history of the talk .



I tryed to make with exemples ,i don't haved time and I made simple tables , Mike is with other color because is in staff .

Note : They aren't users in my forum , I changed using Google Chrome !
Hope you like my ideea,

I'm trying to figure out what the difference between this and just talking to people on a chatbox. To me, it just seems easier to just activate the chatbox and now you have a way to chat with others. If you want to talk to just one individual in private, then you can take it to a PM and have a private conversation there.

But I'm kind of having trouble figuring out what's the difference between this and a chatbox.

Yes , that is a simple chat for friends , and it's activable ,not requested ,because that I suggested ,if I want I can activate chat.

Oh ,sorry I don't said : It's required to your friend have chat activate if you want to talk with him ! If him don't have activate ,you can't talk with him ,at that suggestion I add .

The all users are onlye ,but ,for exemple at " Mike " to have a Blue dot in face to know who is online and who is offline .

With that , the avatar will not be added in the list !

I voted yes, as the Forumotion chatbox is sort of retarded to me, but please make sure that the style of this is...."pretty".

**I also voted "yes" because sometimes PM is not as instant, and Forumotion chatbox is sometimes not as private.

Um, I'm a little confused, so It is pretty much just a private chat?

Then shouldn't there just be a private chat,And e-mark some people like doing it the old fashioned way "Private messaging" is already the old fashioned way for most things.

If you want , yes , can remove the private messages , that code will help more , it is a very fast way to talk with friends.

Oh , you can't remove Private Messages , because , that code is only for friends , with P.M can send the message at members , if they aren't your friends .

Seems like a neat idea to allow instant FM messaging with Friends only. The current all open public chatbox has its limits and allows the Admin to moderate what is discussed. I think the idea could work so long as the Admin is able to regulate what is permissible to discuss in real time from the Admin Panel.

I agree with this.. It defeats the purpose of the chatbox. Voted no :/ An are we really allowed to "bump" our topics like this individual? blackeye

Well FM could offer it for a price...

Problem with having a private chat box are those Ads that force you to hear them. FM would need to disable that specifically [in that Profile panel]. Not only are they a nuisance on that same page, but also on that browser tab. Not cool when you are listening to your favorite music station and the ad is chatting it up. I'm forced to click out of that Profile tab to silence it. I wouldn't mind spending credits to remove them for a private chat box in return. I'm not interested in disabling ads across the board for what the going rate is. Implementing that private chat box with that current across-the-board feature though will encourage me to buy.

For those who are unsure about this idea, in my personal opinion, having a real-time private chat box as an alternative is a good idea. Public version is too limited [kicks idle users too quickly] and can not regulate who can use it. Hence, it's too public because it is open to all members. Private messaging is also limited. Rather a nuisance when a bunch of friends are trying to leave a message but can't because the Inbox is full. Leaving a Visitor Message still falls short.

Having a private chat box is the best of both. The Admin simply needs to enable that feature and take any disciplinary action when warranted (e.g., lock the member from using it). The member has several choices as to whom they are open to chat with: All [all members]; Friends [as listed]; User Groups [member of]. If they select All, the other two are automatically disabled. If they choose Friends, only those Friends can chat with them. And if they choose User Groups, another sub-panel opens allowing the member to decide how many UGs they belong to can chat. Add the ability to determine time for idle users to be kicked and that member has essentially become the Mod of their own chat box.

I voted 'Yes'. cheers
