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

Is there any way to maybe add a mic or webcam option?

That would be nice, but it might be a strain on the servers. Perhaps as a premium (paid) feature? Razz

They actually need a rules in the chatbox, like the chatbox mini rules, when clicked "chatbox rules" near the button "send" they will follow the rules much faster.

We should at least have a separate time on the session timeout for the chatbox, in my opinion.

I agree with this, but also, I tend to find, that most of them are confusing, thus leading to nearly no-one using them.

I wouldn't mind having a sound being integrated into the CB by default, but it is already possible via template editions.

Voting No.
So wait, a sound thing is optional for only certain templates? I think if it's possible for this to be implemented, a sound should be able to be turned on or off. Any news on this actually happening. I don't wanna have to use a xat chatbox, as I prefer the layout of the ones forumotion use.

Adding this function, imo, wouldn't be upgrading (well, yes, it would) so much as it would bringing forumotion out of the dark ages that they seem to have dug into.

It would be a step forward out of their growing out-of-date ways, so yes, I agree that we need this function.

Agreed, other services use more advanced chat functions, why can't forumotion?

Any word on whether or not this could eventually happen? I don't want to have to bring in a xat chatbox just to use the features I'd like (private chat and an option to have a sound when a new IM is made w/ an option to turn the sound off) if it's possible that the chat we have could be upgraded. Granted, the chat now is pretty much perfect, it's missing these two key features for it to be complete.

I can see how this would work. I also think that v1 and v2 should both be available.

Logging in to the site as a member should be enough logging in - the chatbox should be viewable to logged in members so they could monitor the chat and jump in if they want.

It is not like the chat is a secret conversation - it is open to all registered members - so it should be made to be ready seen.

So, except for my reservations about sound - I vote yes to any chatbox update.


I agree with this 100%. I also like the private chat idea(whisper) and have a suggestion myself.

Is there any way we can get something for our chatboxes? I want the users to be able to see in the chat when a reply to a post is made or a thread created. I know this can be done in vbulletin chat plug-ins. Im curious to know if something like this exists or could be done? Reply's would be greatly appreciated

Post by Quily on April 21st 2011, 5:30 am

Was bored and made lame pictures of what my mind was thinking on this chatbox.

There will be three tabs.Public,Whisper,and Channel.With a settings feature.

Public is the normal everyday forumotion chatbox with some settings




Whisper is the private one-on-one chat.Just click the user you want to chat with like the online users are tabs,and you can chat with them.(They can be offline in Whisper Tab using settings).Also,you can right click the people if you wanna disable chat with them(there will be symbols on who you can chat with or not,and too lazy to make that part)




Channel is the very complex chat.You can create channels,and every channel has its own moderators that can add/remove members(different symbol to not be confused with WHOLE CHATBOX moderators and members can have 2 symbols if they are a WHOLE CHATBOX moderator and Channel moderator).(ADMINS can view all channels).Also,you can be offline in the Channel Tab by settings.You can create a channel,and there can be up to 30 Channels.In the list of channels,there will be the channel names,and the channels will have a different symbol depending on if your in it or not.The channel list will become the online in channel list once you enter a channel list.A window will appear if you are invited to a channel and you can only invite people online in public chat(too lazy to make window on this one)

@Quily: Great, but only if Admins/Mods are the only ones who can make/remove channels.
A suggestion, if possible for that idea-- instead of seeing who you're whisper-chatting with, each whiper chat opens in a new tab, and flashes with each new message. Just like Nimbuzz, or other simple similar chats. This makes it cleaner and simpler, plus less chance to send a whisper message to someone you don't want to send it to.
