Chat

I added a chat to the forum.
It's found at main navigation and you can also send messages from the forum main page.

Let me know if there's some problems with it.

Nice! I liked how seamless it was to send chat while browsing the forums in Symthic 1.0. I imagine you do not want to have a chat box at the top of every page. But, would it be possible to create a windowed chat option?

Yeah I think that'd be great.

Here's an if possible example.

We can have a bar at the bottom of the screen that follows you as scroll always remaining at the bottom of the screen. It could give little notifications when someone leaves a message in the chat, well still being able to use the forum. When you click on the bar a little window slides up and shows the chat. The chat window doesn't take up all of the screen, just some, enough to be able to read the chat and still see the forums. To go back simply press the minimize button.
To get an idea of how the bar will look think of the Com Center on Battlelog, something like that.

Just an idea.

EDIT: I have also noticed that the chat is rarely populated now. I am going to assume this is because the chat isn't as easy to access as it previously was.

The chat really needs to be like it used to be, visible right away to everyone. Very easy to miss that shoutbox bar in the middle of the rest, plus it's a bit down on the page which makes it less viewable.

leave/join messages take up most of the saved rows as well, and the lack of online list just makes it difficult to see if someone is even listening ;o


Sure you can open up the chat in a larger window, but there's still a lack of people looking at it
