Chat Option for Members


#1

Will there be some kind of libe chat option on the forum? So that members can chat? If they enabled it in the Profile?


#2

I think there might be a plug in that I can compile in for it, I will have to do some testing to see how well that works. Another option is that I could create an IRC channel as that is something that me and a few others already are using to chat. A third option could be using Discord, but as I don’t use it very often I fear it would not be very well used.


#3

IRC is fine, any other ideas or is everyone fine with a IRC Channel?


#4

I use IRC on a daily basis, so I think IRC would be the way to go for live chat.


#5

Thanks for putting this together Tom. Excited to be part of the forum!


#6

I like the IRC option, or perhaps a Teamspeak server? That could be kinda fun!


#7

discord would be nice to use, but I like the idea of irc.


#8

IRC is fine, but needs to be easy to access for everyone.
Chat is also more to do one on one or quick questions to someone or a room, that don’t need a seperate topic.

I have not done much with it as a platform, but using Matrix / with a Riot clien looks like an interesting option. Riot is a web interface for Matrix, but there are clients that can connect to it, as well as phone apps. I built this room for testing.
