Hi,

I am going to do some work on the Forum software in November/December (updates, audit stuff, etc), and one of the things I was thinking of doing was integrating a chat page.

This would be linked into the forum membership (you log into the forum, and you can participate in the chat), and all messages would be archived and accessible.

This way if there was inappropriate behaviour it could be dealt with in same way that issues are dealt with on the forum (with innapropriate behaviour being reported to a forum in the same way as spam is now).

It is just an idea, please let me know what you think.

Cheers
John de Murga

Let me quote Wikipedia:
Quote:
Stable release 3.0.7-PL1 (March 5, 2010; 7 months ago (2010-03-05)) [+/−]


I know it's a very big effort because of the ancient version used on the forums and number of posts, users and whatever, but I still think phpBB deserves an upgrade after all these years. Newer versions make it easier to integrate stuff (chat plugins, portal stuff, CMSs) and provide better spam protection.

And yes, chat is a good idea but I'm sure #puppylinux won't die anytime soon.

From the user standpoint, an absolutely capital idea and I salute you sir. Moderators may think otherwise...

Sounds great and means we would just need the browser to chat.

Xchat or pidgin would be needed for those preferring a complete IRC experience.

It also means more potential mainstream users
Good luck with that John. Smile

I tend to agree it is a step in the right direction.
That is if it does not slow up the rest of the forum as I have often been logged out while online with all unread messages being marked as read when I logged in again.
Sometimes, I would log in, go to reply to a post and when I would hit the Submit button, I would be told I had to log in to post a reply.
Could it be that the forum is logging me out if it seems I am inactive for a certain period of time?

I think its an excellent idea, is it going to be text only or maybe with sound? Yahoo chat has had sound for like 10yr+, I think that would be a great addition. Oh by the way I met my wife on Yahoo chat Australia 10yrs ago, lol
I was using an old acer aspire 233mmx with 64MB of memory and windows 98se, heck back then there was so many windows virus you could get away with low specs, I used to talk live, have video chat and play online yahoo games with her all at once with that pc and it ran great. funny now we need 46 billion dollar fiber optics's upgrade across Australia to do same the same thing I did 10yr's ago +, lol
Anyways looking forward to the update and thanks ever so much for what you provide for the puppy project Smile

how about intergrating it with #puppylinux with using a in-browser irc client. Would most probably be too big/slow though...

Thank you very much. Looking forward to the results. I would like to help if I can but I also must get on with my GCSEs badly Embarassed Sad. So I probably will have to say no to some things.

Freenode.net has a web client, there's no requirement to use an IRC client.

Point your trusty browser of virtually any flavor at

this sounds like a good idea however, how would it be implemented on the page?

would it be like click this link to connect to and irc server?
or would it be an actual box in the forum that you could see at all times

also, while some like sounds with chat, some don't want a popping noise all the time *cough me cough* so i f you do it would it be too hard to put a sound toggle on/off switch in there?

No chat possible feasible? We did have one previously. So convenient. Even just a link to this on the forum page would be great . . .

Would it be topic-specific? Like if you were in the 5.2 feedback topic the chat would be about that only? If so I'm all for it. Otherwise wouldn't it just be another version of #puppylinux IRC?

Like a 'shoutbox,' perhaps? I haven't seen too much favorable opinion toward those, but I can't be sure.

I'd rather have a proper live-chat page, if anything. Still have to get around to actually bothering to try to learn IRC, one of these days. Maybe. Razz
