An Instant messenging program?
« on: May 11, 2010, 04:52:06 PM »
something to where you can set up chat rooms or something. instant talk is always better than waiting for someone to realize they have a message in their inbox...

bassicly a off site chatroom for this site lol but it would help if we had a chatroom then people wouldn't have to make a thread thats bassicly a chat room based on a topic another thing that it would help with is if someone had a question they could ask it as soon as they think of it and someone could get to them

i support this as well,  to get started what Format is the site made of? this is a need to know because there are probably around 3-4 instant messaging programs to use on a website, but your going to need space on the server and of course a moderator to do everything or is it the web master?

the site can add google talk but thats just dumb, and since the site is javascript i think it can be done easily you just need to find the right program and there are actually around 13 out there. just looking for the ones that can be embedded, but an instant message system would be very effective as most people know, it would be less strain on the server and the moderators but it would require a bit more maintenance most likely, but it would increase the rate at which people get information.
You would naturally need more than one chat group like the "socialize chat group" and a moderator for each group respectively. The only problem I see with this is the initial starting period, but adding it would take time and if it was done wrong it could screw some things up and would take time to fix >.>
But apk have good webmasters so if this idea were ever to be executed im sure things would go smoothly.
If you really want to do something theres one thing called meebo, http://www.meebo.com/websites/
it connects to a bunch of social sites and chat services from a bar like it does on facebook and other social sites, but your best bet is to look stuff on your own and figure it out xD
