I can has chatbox?

Post by Entaris on Thu May 07, 2009 3:50 pm

As all of you are aware, we have no Chatango for some undisclosed reason, and neither do we know if/when it will be coming back online. Therefore, I propose that we begin considering alternative chat programs. For instance, I have found one at userplane.com[url=userplane.com]UserPlane[/url] that looks promising, as it is fully skinnable and all that good rot for the programmers in our midst, as well as Voice/Video capabilities.

Suggestions for other places to get a Chat back are welcomed.

Why don't we all just hang out at TY and curse 0rc for his inability to do a proper forum.

How about you shut up and we let Orc work out whatever problem there happens to be?

I wasn't insulting 0rc. I was making a light of the situation. I'm the one who first suggest to him that he should switch to forummotion. Insulting this is insulting myself. xD

Alright, the name is Orc, not 0rc; get it right or don't type/say it damnit. The only reason it is 0rc is because somebody else on Chatango wanted to infuriate me by having his/her name be Orc! *sniff* I get a bit emotional when people bring up my name ok?

Randomness aside, if you haven't already seen my post in the Shenanigans! thread, this thread will determine if I put up an altered Chatango chat possibly without the site name or a chat from UserPlane, as Entaris suggested. It would be nice if people would start voting Chatango or UserPlane, or provide another alternative if we really must bog this down.

UserPlane seems shiny, yes, I will give it that. But a combination of my desire for nothing to ever change, and the fact that on their site, the "screenshots" of it are with Mac, leads me to say that I just cannot support that.

My vote goes for just making a new chatango.

Well I enabled the side-bars, so whichever chat service we go with, members will be able to chat continuously no matter where they are instead of just sitting at the home page.

So it seems like...
Chatango: 3
UserPlane: 1

There is no winner yet, so the voting shall continue.

I recently removed all but one of the side bars, which is to the right of the page. Currently, only the empty bar for "Site Chat" is visible.

I'm torn. On one hand this chat looks fancy, and possibly better than Chatango.
On the other it looks like it has a lot more stuff, to the point where we'd have to spend a little while learning it.

So in short:
Chatango: We know just about everything about it.
Userplane: Possibly better, possibly more awkward, will require getting used to regardless....

I think what's going to decide me on this is whether Userplane has the same inter-instance support and if it allows anons

Basically can other people from other sites with Userplane get on ours without having to make another account?
Can people post more or less anonymously?

http://www.userplane.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=apps.webchat
Going strictly off what I can read in the minimalistic description for each one of Webchat 2's selling points, I cannot seem to find an answer for the question. However, taking a glance at the smaller chat in the screen shot at the top of the page, it seems like so, that people can post anonymously. But then the shot to the left of it seems to not allow so, in that users must have an account of some sort.

EDIT: Alright, I have created and account and uploaded the code and all that wonderful stuff for the old s159 home page in order to test it.
http://s159.webs.com/

EDIT 2: After logging out, it registers me as an anon. I can still chat and talk.

EDIT 3: The normal Webchat is much too large for a side bar. It may be advised that if we do take it, we put it on the home page, then get a mini-chat to go on the side bar. This is all still assuming we go with it, which is unlikely given the numbers.

So it seems still...
Chatango: 3
UserPlane: 1

Chatango: 4
UserPlane: 2

Well at this rate of voting we might as well stop within the next few days, perhaps tomorrow.

I thought putting up an example of UserPlane in action would have been objective.

Since it is becoming overwhelmingly obvious Chatango won. This is not to say, though, that a change later is impossible.

Nope, doing it for me too.

EDIT: It looks like it is only doing it for ones that don't have a description, that or it isn't showing the description anymore.
