chatbox (this is not one of those joinchatnow threads)

Unread postAuthor: psycix » Wed Jan 23, 2008 7:28 am

Since we have seen some "Join spudchat now! Im in it now!" threads, and since this chatbox is not used much, I thought about that.

It seems like there are not enough people encouraged to click the chatbox when they are online, but it seems like some people DO want to chat since there are some "Join now" threads so now and then.

Well what if PCGUY could make something that the chatbox automatically launches when logging in?
Or maybe have a box popping up with "Would you like to join the chat?" with a YES and a NO button.
That will definitely start it up, I hope.

Let me know what you think, and maybe we will all be active on the chatbox soon :)

Maybe instead of a normal popup, it could simply be a similar message close to that of the private message window. The only thing I see is that having a popup do it reminds me too much of advertisement.

Or someone can invite you with a message saying:
"(Spudfiles SN) has invited you to the chatbox"

With this message, it makes posts for people make seperate threads obselete and it gets people in if they want to come.

which is basically the same thing as you said.
