To avoid so many duplicate threads, please place your ideas and thoughts on a live chat system here.

Initially, we weren't going to do a live chat, but enough users asked for it that Dan has agreed, and we'll add a live chat to the system AFTER we launch AG3. It will NOT be part of the AG3 launch.

Ideas that others have suggested:
- custom channels
- password-protected channels
- kick/ban controls
- moderation controls
- report a user

We don't know yet if the chat will be Flash based, Java based, or something else.

if we moderate it well, possibly it'd be good.


I have gotten away with quite a bit of stuff when there were no moderators online. imagine what kind of hell would break loose if there was nobody online to moderate the entire chat.

there are over five million accounts on that website


youd think there would be at least one intelligent person in there somewhere.

Well so far from what i've read is that mods/admins are relying on people to flag something just like we do on comments, but as you're saying, if a mod isn't online to "kick" the person out of the chat, or whatever rules are going to apply there, then the damage will be too late by the time someone has logged on.

Another issue i have, is that due to there hopefully being more than one chat room, it will make moderation for each room even more difficult. People flagging things will surely help grab the moderators attention, although there is also the risk of people flagging things that they don't agree with, which will consume the moderators time filtering through.

there should be like a vote to kick someone out button, in case no mods or admins are there to fix the problem.... when lets say, 50 people hit the button, that person whos spamming or trolling will be banned from that chat room for the rest of the day... if it happens again, that spammer cannot go into any chat room.... good idea?

King, it is a good idea yes. My only concern with something like that is the same concern i have if a dislike button is introduced to the reputation system - couldn't there be a case of e-bullying? Where someone gets people to gang up on a person they don't like just to get them kicked out of a room?

Now my negative spin would see moderators look at why they were banned and reinstate them, sure, but for the time when mods are online it would be a problem.

but it would have to be a popular vote.... one person wouldn't be able to bann them,they would need at least 50 or 75 people....

Yeah, but by that stage the person could have happily spammed for hours?

if the person just wanted to be annoying, he would create a different account. so you need a internet ban (IP ban?forget) or have a thing that if they get kicked you cant create a different account for 24 hours????

That wouldn't be so cool when you think about how many people would have to moderate all these individual chat rooms. A chat room requires constant surveillance, and if that isn't provided, it can get out of hand and eventually ruined. It would be quite challenging to ensure 24-hour surveillance for as few as 3 in-game chat rooms if the moderation team consists of fewer than a dozen people.

Cormyn already discussed this topic, and he said it will probably not happen.... Read the last few pages of this thread and your' questions will probably be answered

That would make the idea even better, so yes.
