Advanced Chatbox 2.0 Suggestion (Over 200 votes!)

Post by Mio-chan on March 2nd 2010, 10:52 pm

First topic message reminder :

The Forumotion Chatbox is vital for communication on SEVERAL forums, and from time to time I personally notice its missing a few features. I have made a list with a description of these features below. With your help, we can make this a reality for forumotion.

*Notice: This is COMPLETELY separate from the pop out chat 2.0, and has nothing to do with it. Though, the pop out chatbox does provide SOME of the features listed below, and I highly recommend it!*

Delete Function
Descrption: Moderators/Administrators may delete individual chatbox messages.

*NEW* Universal Feed Channel (Admins/Mods Only)
Descrption: The universal feed channel will show all messages being posted on the chatbox, including whispers, and private chat channels, for easy moderation.

Advanced Permissions
Description: Manage several permissions of the Advanced Chatbox such as some of the permissions listed below with a panel similar to the Forum Permissions Advanced Panel

Permission to view Chat - Limit the people who can view your chat by Usergroup, and/or username.
Whisper Function - Limit of the use of people who can use the Whipser function by Usergroup and/or username (The same ability you have with limiting Private Messaging in the forum)
Report Function Integration - Limit the use of the Report function by Usergroup and/or username.
Channels - Limit the use of SPECIFIC channels by usergroup and/or username.


Whisper Function - Can be disabled

Description: Send a message to specific user(s) on the chat that is only viewable to the users your specified

Ex.

User A: (Whisper to User B) Test Message

Private Chat Channel
Description: Creates a private channel that the creator can invite people into (Admins CAN monitor these channels!)


Notification - Optional

Description: Browsing another tab, but you fear you'll miss a message? Sound is unpopular, so I went for a different approach.

If a message is sent, your tab will flash (like a highlighted tab), Off by Default, can be activated via the ACP and Users can disable it specifically for them via the Profile/UCP.

Sound - Optional

Description: Chatbox will "chirp" when it has received a message



Report User Function - Optional

Description: People just don't break rules on the forum. They also break 'em on the chat as well, but if no mods are present, the abuse will continue.

With the Report User Function, you can right click a user on the Online list and click "Report User" which would send a report into the Reports panel, with a copy of the archives at the time for further investigation.

Channels/Instance - Off by default
Description: Need to discuss something with a group of users? Go into another Channel/Instance! Very useful to hold a Moderator meeting without disabling the whole entire chat to other users.

Of course, Channels can be managed by the Advanced Permissions function to specific usergroups/users

If anyone wants changes, I'll edit this.

Avatars - Optional, Enabled by Administrator
Description: Have a small version of the users' avatar on the chat

@pimentel2: I see your point of view now, and must say I agree. Very Happy

On another note, it seemed that the chatbox (and general website) was being updated today. Does anyone know how or why, and if this idea is being considered?

I vote no because my website is a site that reviews Nintendo games posts Nintendo news and such so the majority of my members use Wii browsers and DS/3DS browsers on my site including myself so if it gets upgraded to a java chatbox or becomes too advanced my members and myself won't be able to use it anymore Sad

Yes, but what if it was something you could turn off? Or maybe a new code they come up with and only give out on the help forum?

I think that all of these changes could be made to Forumotions Chatbox. Without, needing to involve Java. JavaScript is what it uses, JavaScript will likely continue to work (With the right developers working on these).

They do need to rewrite there JS code though... Its a wreck.


I think they should use Socket.IO or use a combination WebSockets and XHR polling (XHR is what they're currently using for the chatbox). WebSockets would make it more live-time. WebSockets for the Newer Browsers, and XHR as a fallback for the older browsers.

They should also switch to JSON, when the server talks to the client or vice versa. The fool who thought "I know, lets transfer the chatbox messages over HTML in a javascript file!" is a idiot beyond words. Very un-clever.


+1, I'm agreement. There is more that needs to improve.

Avatars - Optional, Enabled by Administrator

I would settle for just being able to bar specific usergroups or have a select specific usergroups. I use a time out feature on my site and would like to stop anyone on a time out accessing the chatbox.

but excellent suggestions.

how many are needed before they consider it?
