Title: [Help Required] New Chat Program
Post by: Furry-Sneezes on June 02, 2016, 07:27:49 AM
So, the current chat just isn't working out right now. There's some awful bugs with it and as a result it just hasn't been effective since the site upgrade.

Right now, I'm casually looking around for other alternatives that would work on SMF. So far I found this one, but I'm not sure it will be all that great in terms of UI. It looks okay in terms of functionality but beyond that, ehh. It feels more like Facebook Messenger than a nice IRC type chat.

What do you guys think? Anyone able to find any other options? What can I do to get people chatting again, because I know it's been super dead pretty much since we upgraded, and I kind of miss things. Did PSF steal everyone with any hint of social inclination??? :P

Edit: http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=4036 (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=4036) Another one with similar UI. Ehh. I see one for off-site logins meaning no security.

Edit: http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=611 (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=611) "Hey, this is nice looking." -> "Oh, it's a pay program -_-" -> "Lulz, the site that I would pay in the first place doesn't even load anymore. Oh wellllll."

Siiiigh.

Let it be known that the Error 500s had been existing for over 2 years.

I'm gonna fight for a refund on hosting fees for a big chunk of that time. Wish me luck, and again, welcome back to a restored site. For the first time in two years apparently...
