Guests having access to Chat Box

Post by redcanuck on February 17th 2011, 8:54 pm

We have a lot of guests on the forum but very few become members and I was thinking that if guests could access the chat box, it maybe a way to convince them to join the forum.

I agree and I'm voting yes. And suggesting that if this gets accepted, that some option like Guests can't add links to chat messages shoud be implemented too.

Voted yes, too.
If implemented, every Administrator should be able to decide whether he wants to allow guests to use the chatbox or not ^^

I'm gonna use other chatting program but the guests can't view them, not like phpbb3 forum.

I hope you can make a function:

Chatbox section viewable for guests ? [Option]Yes [Option]No

Thank you.

So how long are these suggestion polls running before we get an answer on whether they are accepted or not?

You need to get atleast 40-50 votes to make your suggestion popular and noticed by the staff, pro admins/technicians.

Voted yes ONLY IF:

-implementation is optional
-can't send links
-flood control on messages (optional, and admin sets length)
-each given different names such as "Guest121" and "Guest784"
-instead of above suggestion, to show difference between members or instead just specify a name and it will show as guest, for example they call themselves "Fred" and they show up as "Fred (Guest)"

There were others that I forgot but still... Very Happy

Voted No. Gives them access to spam, it will be havoc for your current members then. I would rather retain my current members instead of risking to lose them to gain more members by convincing them via chats.

I've voted no. It gives guests the opportunity to spam and I believe that even with the restrictions they will still find a way around them. Wink

Even though...
-flood control on messages (optional, and admin sets length)
Flood control would normally work, right? And there could always be an option to ban IPs.

The most I've been minding is we chat silently and no one will notice when someone's talking.

I wish a notice sound (any sound) enabled in Chatbox. User don't get right to disable it.

If he don't wants to hear the sound, 1. log out, 2. leave page.

That's all.
