Making Modifications

I'm going to modding a few things on these boards, making it a bit more than the typical boring phpbb. For starters, I modded the topic function so that usernames are displayed as hyperlinks to user profiles.

I'm also planning on adding a quick reply function, a function that displays if people are active on instant messengers, and a user set custom title function.

I'd like to add some cool new features and functions to the forum, and I'd like some ideas.

I know that you have reffered to this before...

But a chat room would be very useful here :D

Because in this forum are always the same people, and a lot of discussion would be nice to do in the chat.

Or maybe a space to know eachother better, i dont know... :roll:

Doing a reputation points system would be nice too determining if some one contribute to making good post or just plain spam.

Perhaps a simple chat room would be a good way of allowing off topic chatter without detracting from the purpose of being a forum specifically for Eva... I'll consider it, and maybe set something up. Given that I'm going to try to get some rare books at otakon in a week, I'll be planning a trivia contest for dibs on what I find. A chat room will be necessary for that, and perhaps I'll stick with it.

Now, the question is, should I do a simple php based chat, IRC chat room, or AIM chat room. I like the idea of an AIM chat room, because its more user friendly than IRC, and for those that don't have either, AIM will be easier to jump into.

One mod displays if a user is logged into AIM, maybe that would go well with the chat room.

I for one second AIM. Very friendly and easy to use. And the profiling is very easy to personalize which would be good if people wanted to get to know each other better.

Also, AIM-based chat is free. Users wishing to enter an IRC chat without logging into a Java app would have to pay twenty clams for the software. Well, it's not like I would know very well, but that's what happened with me at the björk site.

People should be able to get custom stitles after a certain amount of postage or time has past.

I spent over an hour installing a custom user title mod. And it still didn't work. :x

One problem with an AIM chat room is that there's no way to eject users that are spamming the schnootle out of the chat room. IRC and a fair number of java chats have that much..

You can't "kick" someone from a chat room in AIM the way you can kick someone in IRC. However you can block people, so that way they don't show up in chat.

If someone decides to be immature and say stuff like:

n00b: RAAAAAAAAHHHHHH EEVA IZ THE STUPIIIIIDD!!!!!!! You're all child rapists!1!@

Everyone can either tear into him for kicks, or block him and move on.
