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.

For the whole CHATTING idea.... If ur playing a game or in the community or anywhere in armor games in general.... It should notify u if some1 commented on ur profile or on the thread that u created..... I think that would be a good idea!


Kingofwar1234, it already does that.


Email notifications or on site notifications?

Lulz, it was sarcasm king, considering you made a dup of this thread.

On-site. You'll see an indicator counter in the top right corner of the screen when activities happen. Obviously we haven't hooked up any forum engine yet, so you won't see activities when someone replies to a forum topic you started/follow.

This is good, i was afraid of an inbox bombardment like facebook tends to do.

I guess that's good, but somebody else suggested that the notification would be an armatar bleep. Then again, an armatar bleep would be weird and possibly annoying. As a result, I like what I double-quoted and I agree with what I single-quoted (that's why I turned off comment notifications).

All this is EPIC! No more back-and-forth between your profile and syour friend's....
Also, you could use it sort of like a training ground for junior moderators, with supervisors checking progress or something. I'm looking forward to it.

I think Facebook plays a little 'op' sound when certain events happen, but might be related to their chat system, not their general alert system.

i think your chat system should be simple this is my design thought you have a chat that follows you page to page so users aren't cramped up on one page and that page doesn't crash it should have an admin/mod people on it and under each post on the chat chat it should have a report this post button and it should be hosted on another website but put into the css of this site to prevent the website crashing

Hey... in Google's Orkut (that social network that was beaten up by Facebook), there is a chat system. A small popup appears on the left bottom of the screen and tells you what friends are online or offline. Then if you start chatting with someone, another popup appears in the middle bottom of the screen and you can chat in there. These popups are &quotersistent" and don't disappear when the page is loading. In these popups you can choose if you're online, absent, busy or offline.

A similar system would do the trick here, wouldn't it?

First off i dont think its good idea becuase similiar system is already used on Facebook and dont forget about copyrights.

I wouldn't allow custom created chatrooms, idiots & spammers will be posting inappropriate links (eg pron & buy handbags) & rooms (eg who wants s x e x!).

Chat administrators should be admins only. If anybody has issue with a person in a chat session they can flag it.

I would go for flash/JSON/XML and make it only available to reg users. For bandwidth considerations and to ease the load on the server I would also make the shoutbox clickable to initiate and deactivate the chat.

if AG gets a chat bar it will officially be better than Kongregate
