About the Chatbox timeout session and away function

Post by zamm0rak86 on Wed May 30, 2007 1:20 am

i think the time it takes for a member to go from active to away in the chatbox is too short, the same goes with the timeout session, where u will get logged out...

on my forum its about games, and alot of the people on my forum plays while they are on my forum.. so they get logged out alot.. and this annoys them and it makes them, not wanna use it... but chatbox is a great chat... but I think it would be even more usefull if you could change the away time or timeout session, timer.... or remove it, so that u wont be away unless u use the command /away... or logged out for that matter...

what do u think... Smile

i think it is a great idea. all of my friends auto-log out and no-one knows if they have left for good or they are playing a game.

YES YES YES

The chatbox isn't really that editable at the minute, this could really help for the more busy forums who use the chatbox ^^

I vote yes

It's up to the technicians to decide if it is going to be added, not the number of votes Wink

I think this would be a great idea.

i have set the chatbox to open in a different window so members can chat and look through the posts at the same time.

Also a number chat while at work so often get distracted then come back and have to log back in.

No biggie at the end of the day but can get annoying. Especialy when someone looks in the box and sees everyone away, they will be more inclined to not go in, although members are just looking at another page.

Just my two cents worth.

It would be nice to be able to remove that, but I think this has been an issue before. I read that the reason for the timeouts was that otherwise the whole page would refresh a lot (not sure, but it definately had something to do with refresh issues), which of course would also be a pain in the a**.

Now what I've done and what I suggest all people in favor of this suggestion should do = get a remotely hosted shoutbox.

try shoutmix.com (that's what I use) or google and you'll find tons of them. No logging in/out & thus real time chat with no interruption.

No offense but i think the chatbox is garbage... I think the chat room should be more like inferno chat, where it automatically logs people into the chatroom upon viewing the page using their forum name.
