Chat suggestions

So chat is great, great stuff happens there but I think it could be better;

-Make the notification sound work.
ATM, the notification thing doesn't work, I'm sure this is already noted but just another heads up.

-Make the notification have options.
I assume that the notification would be a sound cue, but how about making it simply flash the tab at the top (similar to how Facebook does when you receive a message) and have the sound optional.

-Have some form of notification to who has the chat tab actually open.
This could go in the right panel next to their name, similar to the icon that shows whether a person is online or not.
The reason for this is that when you join chat, you never know who's actually there or AFK

-Make all links in chat open a new tab/page.
It's annoying clicking on someone's link to be brought out of chat, I'm sure many people have done this by accident once or twice.

I posted something like this a bit ago. Sym said that he will look into it but it is far from the most pressing matter.

The chat was the first thing I tried upon joining the Forums. I joined the chat, was too shy to say anything and left :pinch:

I'd like to see it be put at the bottom of the main forum page. That way more people used it.

That's not bad. My phone corrected "lets deforest Caspian Boarder" into "Lets de-foreskin Asians".... I think my phone is a racist pervert....

I would start singing Disney, but then I would be led on a path of destruction, eventually ending up with a boyfriend who is actually a skull with Macaroni and cheese.

More like on top so people can see it ;> It used to be in the middle but collapsed, no one ever joined... It needs to be as simple or as automatic as possible

Noted | Chat Notification.

Yeah.. the chat isn't too great but there's not much I can do with this chat system. Its forbidden to edit the chat plugins source directly and it doesn't have options for any of those.
Having the chat on top/bottom of every page isn't too good idea either. Server would get overloaded because of tons of requests when there are 200+ users browsing the forum.

I could set up some another chat system but as said, that doesn't have the highest priority.

It's fine if you can't do anything to the chat, it's not too bad as it is. Just minor niggles with it that I'm sure we will all get used to in time. I don't think I mentioned with the OP that this really isn't that high of a priority at all.

There seems to be some new chat plugins available for WBB. I'll do some testing and see if any of them is better than the current one.

Edit: Theres this facebook-style chat running atm.
It's not too friendly for the server, 70+ requests per second and it doubles at rush hours so I don't think it's going to work.

Edit2: Yup, server CPU (Xeon L5520) usage jumped to 100% when more users came online.
Had to disable the chat.
