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.

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


Yeah. But start a chat engine from 0 would take a LOONG time. And if it's similar, it isn't equal, then there is no need for copyrights.

(By similar I say similar engine and not similar style...)

If there os like a chat room type thing, the person who made the chat room the system should make the user an automatic chat moderatorFor that specific room nowhere else, jst there. And there should be a max amount of chat rooms made, otherwise, there will be about 5000 chat rooms, and tht would be too out of control

We've already discussed this, we won't give "moderator" status to any regular user in the chat system. And we haven't even decided whether to allow private rooms or not.

Eehhh.... Maybe there could be a censor, that could be set on sensitivity levels.

The live chat system won't be available at AG3 launch time. It's a feature we're going to work on after AG3 is finished.

what i mean is, that the person who made the chat room has the power to ban the user who's saying mean things, spamming, trolling etc. thats what i meant, is the person who made the chat room has the power to ban in that specific chat room.

:=0 Chat? I see every user who watched the hundred locked threads on this topic in 2008 staring in disbelief.

Will there be standard chat rooms and game chats? Like a few 'Big' rooms about topics such as Flash games and Random discussion? And chat rooms for specific games? Would be totally cool for games like Colony and such.

I personally do NOT like the idea of private rooms. The reason is is only makes mod life harder, and people feeling excluded/exclusive. And it would thin out users across more rooms, which kind of sucks.

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.


YES! This is like one of the features the AG users have been waiting forever on. A feature to see what is happening on AG without sifting through all the profiles and threads, refreshing the whole time. The feature will be similar to what happens on Facebook? A little blue box that notifies you?

What part of "we're not giving moderator controls to regular users" didn't make sense?

We don't know yet. Personally, I like Kongregate's forum system that has a forum for many of their bigger games for chatter, but I'm not sure that would work well for a live chat system. No point having 2000 chat rooms with nobody in most of them. We'd probably start with a few "general purpose" rooms, and expand them from there. Maybe one for support, I dunno. I'm open to suggestions.

WAIT WAIT WAIT .... i got an idea... its kinda like kongregate(like cormyn mensioned earlier). its a chat room for the major/any game... and maybe in the community, but heres the idea part. if there are chat rooms by games, community etc., the chat rooms arent worth armor points. my sister is watching this... im kinda creeped out

I doubt we'd make a chat room for that many games.

Chat would never be worth points anyway.

I just want to say that when this does go through, make sure that if you ban someone from your chat they stay banned from that chat.
I don't want them to come back with a vengeance (ROBLOX has this problem)

Will the chat rooms have a limit on the amount of people that can join?

Flash based and it would be nice to have some sort of filtering system for language

Yes it would. However, I think the best profanity filter is the same one used on the AG forums. Shell Shock Live has a profanity filter, but it's stupid.
