    GameSurge >> Chat

    or irc based see there and just /nick yourname
    /join #quake1 | #quakeone

    ...etc.

    Yeah, the moderation i can see being frustrating.

    But, it was just an idea that was clugging in the back of my mind beats having to find a web irc client and join the channels then talk to ppls on there. Overall, i'm just excessively lazy.

    Shrugs.

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

                True Quake players only chat on Quake servers!

                  It's a great idea. And yes, you DO suck at thought.

                      Would it be entertaining to have a (i.e.: members only) window into the quake servers? So you can observe matches via website and chat with people in play? Or observers chat-only and players arn't disturbed?

                        Explain how to do that and I'd possibly add it to the site.

                        Re: live chat box and irc chat.. I've been away from the site for awhile due to real life ... in fact I haven't even played an online game since the end of August :-(

                        I will take a look at adding a live chat and irc chat somewhere on the site this week (possibly tonight).

                        A note about live chat and moderating though... as Baker said he and I don't have the time to moderate that. The reason moderation is needed is if we get tons of messages of people bitching at each other using vulgar language, it's a turn-off to people who may be wanting to join the community here. It would need to be moderated in that aspect (IMO). Thus if I were to add this, I would add it under the understanding that if it goes to hell, I will simply remove it. Cool?

                          Having the ability to chat with players in-game on a server via a website isn't really a reasonable possibility. Qsmack has some way of allowing communication via a non-Quake client that connects, but making something like that to interface with a web site would be difficult.

                          Neither, unfortunately, is being able to watch a game on a web site (although that would be great).

                          Maybe someday in the distant future, the idea of having the server somehow take screenshots once a minute from a random player's point of view (yet the server is running as a console so nothing to take a screenshot of).

                          Still, maybe it could write a savegame file once a minute and some other mechanism. [I can think of a VERY ugly way to do, hahaha].

                            FTE QTV had a firefox plugin for playing quake and watching demos...i'd say thats a huge start.
                            Also i really liked the plugin, except it doesnt seem to be updated for the most recent firefox: (
