Arrow New Feature: FlashChat

Shrapnel Games now has a chat feature for the community. This feature can be accessed through the quick links tab on the toolbar. Please understand that this kind of feature cannot be constantly monitored, so please remember that our forum rules apply in chat as well. If you violate the rules in chat, you may be banned from using that feature. If the chat feature becomes a resource for trolls and user fighting, we will have to disable it's use, so please play nice.

Excellent. I see that they can create their own room.
Such as "BlitzGame One" :hint:

AND it supports IRC commands

It's on our server .

If your asking about the irc part of it we actually don't expose it on a port, you have to do it throuh the flaschat UI. There is a way to do that but it's a real resource drain to run flashchat in socket mode.

That's just what I wondering. I leave my computer on most all of the time and was thinking that if I could access the room using Chatzilla I would be willing to leave a log running even while I was sleeping. Not that I'm saying we will ever need to use such a log. However, if you knew me in person you would know I always err on the side of caution. I figure you all have already considered this anyway but I didn't see how it would hurt to offer.

Ah ok I see now. One more question, can I ban people? Not that I really want to I'm asking because in the process of exploring the options listed one of them given was "ban". I don't think Richard would have been happy with me had I tried to test it. So I resisted the urge.

Banning by moderators should only be done in case of extreme behavior when a admin cannot be located, followed by a message in the Moderator forum of what you did, why and preferable cut and paste the offending passage. Like I said, Flashchat has options.......but it's best you have your bases covered.

I've put up some additional instructions for the moderators in the moderator forum, just an FYI.
