  • Live chatbox on quakeone.com

    I want to know how many think its a good idea for a live chat box to be visible on mainpage somewhere... so we can all chat it up lively, and get games happening with (active ppl) unlike (idle) ppl on irc.

      Why would it need a server browser in it, there is already one on the website.

      O_o?!?!?

        You should have added a "I don't care" in the poll... as I personally don't care.. but I think everybody does not care about what I care or not... though...

          I know I don't want to supervise a chatbox. I don't think Solecord does either.

          I can't speak for the other moderators, but to me this seems like something that would more supervision than it would be worth a la the Quake1 IRC channel.

                  i'm indifferent. i understand baker's p.o.v. if it happens i'd use it rarely, if it doesn't i certainly won't suffer and i doubt any others would. if a LOT (i'm talking multiple tdm games/servers being played) more gaming was going on it would have a purpose for keeping up with who owns whom. but really, those people with some smack to talk would use irc anyway.

                    Evidently more people would like such a thing, which is kind of interesting... I wonder how the positive vote was distributed among long-time Quakers as opposed to relative noobs.

                    BTW Baker, why do you think chat ought to be moderated? I assume you'd insert some boilerplate "this is not moderated" etc. & not worry about it, but I could be overlooking some obv. legal issue.

                    Personally I think I'd prefer the insertion of a web-based IRC client anyway. =)

                      lets take a peek at who all is for this...

                      Alfader, badaim(1), crowpath(2), Lerster(3), metchsteekle(4), Mindf!3ldzX(5), nitro/adminofdeath, powerzord(6), Shok(7), Team Xlink, terminus

                      i can speak on 7 of those 11 Yay voters. for the most part they're not quake noobs, but they are certified mental noobs. so yeah... there ya have it.

                        as in, a chat client you can enter on this web-site, but is connected to all of irc and has all the same features or more like a dumbed down version where you can only enter the one channel they have hosted on the website? that's interesting though.

                          Anything with communication has to be moderated (even QuakeOne.com's "anything goes" style of forum). Trolls, spammers, nuisance people, perpetual behavior detrimental to the community, etc.

                          And anything that has an ongoing existence has a maintenance cost, usually it costs someone's time.

                          I didn't vote in the IRC poll, nor do I have a preference one way or another. I'm neutral.

                          I'm just saying that I don't have time to moderate it and I doubt Solecord does either.

                            I think its a cool idea. As for the moderation, all you need is chat rules:

                            *you can't post more than once a second
                            *you can ignore people in the chat
                            *you can ignore the chat altogether

                            imagechan.com has a decent live chat, as an example
