    I vote for...

    ... replacing the chat on the homepage with an IRC chat.

    • It's faster
    • It's more responsive
    • It doesn't freeze every so often
    • You can use a dedicated IRC client to chat, making the overall chat experience at least a little more enjoyable but leaving the option to use the built-in JAVA chat
    • It takes (a little) load off the server
    • ... I can use IRC on my phone, thus enabling me to pay no attention in class and, instead, chat with all the cool peepz up in here
    • ...


    Anyone else? ^.^

    I don't have freezing problems, it's as fast as it's set to be, and it works on my phone. lol It also wouldn't use your TF to login (so it'd be different names) or have moderation/customization abilities here.
    No thanks.

    BTW- thank you members have a faster refresh in the chat. :X Regular users are 20 seconds and thank you members get a refresh rate of 15 seconds.

    Just to be clear, I didn't mean to get rid of the one on the homepage and use an IRC channel instead. I meant to use the IRC plugin for vBulletin. That puts a very similar panel at the top for people to chat in, which allows for at least the same moderation capabilities and while I've never used the chat function built into vB, I can't imagine it's more customizable than the decades-old IRC. You could even keep your beneficial reload differentiation for Thank You members. ^.^

    It was just a thought. Obviously, the decision is yours, Andrew, and if you don't like the idea, no biggy. Guess it just gives me more reason to keep an eye out for a plant I want from FTS. XD

    I like terraforums just as it is. It's addicting enough already.

    This chatbox is arguably the most popular shoutbox for VB. If you have a particular hack that you think may be of great use to us here, please PM me that information privately. I have a test TF set up where I have tried many different forum softwares (before choosing VB) and also test all hacks to decide which I like. When I started using this shoutbox (was the second of 8 I tested) I pretty much knew it was the one. And anyone that has been using it since the start knows it has only gotten better over time. So anyway, as I said- please PM me if you think you have a better hack than I use, or one that TF can't live without and I'll check them out as time allows. But starting a post and trying to get members behind you really isn't going to make me change anything... It's better to try and work with me behind the scenes (plenty of people do and often become testers with me on the other forum).
    Thanks,
    Andrew
