    I installed a new chat add-on last night. From what I have seen so far it is miles better than what we had before. I'm going to go into some detail showing it off. You can either read or jump right into the chat and mess around.

    [​IMG]

    This is the new chat box. The messages go on the left with the users on the right. A green circle indicates a currently active user.

    [​IMG]

    In the top right you will see this. You can read up on the different commands available from the help tab.

    /whisper - you can whisper to users
    /rooms - view available rooms

    Click on the 'Rooms' tab to view all rooms.

    Click on the 'Options' tab to customize your chat experience.
    • Enable Sound
    • Inverse Message Direction
    • Place Editor at top
    • Hide user list
    • Choose color (for premium)
    • Add room (for premium)

    Users will now be able to create their own chat room with a password if they choose! Mods and Admins can enter any rooms. I am thinking this will be a premium feature. Regular users can still enter any room they wish.

    [​IMG]

    Under the navigation tabs you have this.
    • View the archive
    • View the Top 25 Chatters (Leaderboard)
    • View currently banned users and length of ban

    How to make a room

    [​IMG]


    Go Options/Add room. You will see this. You can name a room, description and password if you wish to have less users.


    [​IMG]

    If you use Google Chrome the chat will follow you everywhere while on the site. You can be reading a forum and stay up to minute with the chat by clicking on the bar. It's a neat feature. It may affect page speed so I will figure out if it can be disabled if you wish.

    That's it. Go and try it out.

    DISCLAIMER: This is a new add on and issues could arise. So please give feedback and report anything to @Domski .

    Love the new chatbox! Feels a lot more seamless, (like the puck pickup in NHL 16). Also a huge fan of the "top chatters" board, it's pretty cool.

    Well done Dom!

    Like the new chatbox. Maybe I will participate in chat a bit more often. @Domski don't forget to list the create chatroom feature under the premium list.

    Great Job Domski! Just 2 questions
    1. It won't let me put my messages up top help?
    And
    2. Premium Members can only create / have 1 Chat room can you fix that

    The new chat is way better than the old one. It has many new features that make it so much better. Thank you Domski for continuing to make the site better and better as often as you can!
