Transitions~Chatbox

Post by Fizz on Wed Jan 13, 2010 9:30 pm

When we make the transition we're going to have to get a new chatbox to fit the new site, if for no other reason than that the big "Online Brawl Community" in the background can't be changed without an owner.

So. Options. We could stick with Xat, which works fine. But there are a few things I don't like about xat. The amount of text that can be shown at one time is quite small (the main issue for me). Also it has some problems like very often not showing avatars (and for me adding #dhat whenever I try to do a smiley in parentheses, thereby making me unable to use any such smileys). Also there are some issues with copy/pasting, and when you scroll up and leave it that way for any reason, after a few seconds it will reset to the default position which can be annoying. Of course, it has its advantages such as convenience, large text, the friend list and customization.

Other options:

An embedded IRC client (Mibbit for instance)
Other chatbox clients (suggestions?)


Discuss.

Both this, and the new forum will come with their own chatbox. I activated them both to test them out.
