Test The Possible Goblins Chatroom

Post by Thunt » Mon Nov 24, 2014 9:22 pm

I've set up a Goblins room with Scrollback. It's basically a chat room, but it collects each discussion into groups and lists them on the left side of your screen. It's apparently set up to be easily embedded onto a website, so it might be something pretty awesome for us.

I'm asking the Clan of Four Rums (that's what Danielle and I call you guys. Forum... For Rums... Clan of Four Rums) to go sign up (you can use a Google account, Facebook account or a basic email register set up) and test out the place.

Some details...

- When you give them a user name, it has to be all lower case or it won't accept it.

- If you sync it with your Twitter, there's an option to tweet out anybody's comments, which seems kinda cool.

- I've currently got it set up so that if anyone in Twitter uses the hashtag #GoblinsComic, that tweet is automatically posted in the chat room. Which seems pretty cool.

So let me know what you think. :thumbsup:

This is the link to the Goblins place of chatiness... https://scrollback.io/goblins

Is that available as a pure shoutbox?

As such, I find it too unwieldy. (especially this conversations thing. I am always in the wrong conversation....)

I am searching for shoutboxes which are displayable on forums and websites. They do exist, but don't integrate well with the phpBB forums...

And the ones which can integrate with the forum don't work on other webpages... :(

I think I'd prefer a simpler IRC chat room to this...
Discord: https://discord.gg/jFx2gHZ
Steam: http://steamcommunity.com/id/Capricornian/

It's Always Something. No, don't give me that look. It's Always Something.

Same here. I like the flexibility IRC offers, and it would definitely be cool to bring back BotWalter for something for the whole community.
I am one of the forum admins and chat moderators. Drop any of us a line if you ever need a hand in either the forum or the chat.
You can reach me at AdminMoose@goblinsforum.com or at BotWalter@gmail.com

Well that's pretty cool - but there's nobody there at the moment to test it with. I like the automatic and unique avatars and names that sound sort of like real names instead of robotic designators. The tweet feature is pretty cool too. Sorry your work didn't gain more traction :(

nearly three months have passed. It was never crowded there, and the majority found it nice, but others better...

I never was there with more than a few people on. Maybe it is my timezone, just like Krulle. But I never was there before january anyway, did not spot the post before.
Don't we have forum wide announcemence for things like this?

Well, it's over again, use the chatbox of the current live stream channel, whatever that is (it changed so many times, that I lost track)....

Quiet Question - Is this thread still worthy of being pinned to the top?
