Forums chatbox

Post by Bas » Mon Jul 18, 2016 9:38 am

I imagine a chatbox could be useful, also for card coders for quick questions to devs.

Something like this (at the right), just above our forums areas instead for us.

What do you think about this?

We used to have one, it was a bad idea, bots cant be stopped in them as well as we liked.

It would have to be something wololo puts in.
And the number would have to be much higher, as a bot can very easily post 20 spam garbage post in a blink.

If there is no further protest I will send a message to Wololo regarding this. All fine by this?

Sadly the one we had was a pain to maintain, had several security vulnerabilities, and was a drag on the server. I'll have a look but in general I'm against phpbb mods for security reasons.
(PS Zeth: not forgetting your request, I want to blog about Wagic, just got a bit sidetracked lately)
