View Full Version : FC Real Time Chat

Idk if this would be possible...

I know when I ran my own squad it was a great asset in keeping communication between the members and really helped the activity level because every member would be able to participate in real time instead of having to keep refreshing their browser.

I know there are other programs out there but if it were possible to cut the middle man out and put one up ourselves here then our members can benefit not only in the armies but in the general forums as well.

Just my thought...

I believe this was turned down before because it would kill out the forums part of the forums.

We had it before, but removed it.

But who knows. We're upgrading our forums within the a month ... anything's possible. :)

it is a solid tool for strategizing without the constant distractions on live :)

Im not against it. I think it would be good, if you could set it up for both Armys.

if it can't be set up on the forums, can't we just set up a tinychat or something?

Thats what we have FB for. Couldn't we just set up a FC REDD army and FC BLUE army page and make them invite only? We got the main FC FB page, which has open chat. That would make it easier to message the FM's after battles are complete.

Real time chat sound awesome! Great idea, dude! :clap:

I agree with this idea.

But it has been suggested and turned down a lot, as there's supposedly a lot of problems in implementing it.

has it ever tried being implemented within the forums because I know outside programs like windows messenger, aim, skype and the like would produce the same effect: however it would require you to sign up for it and cannot really be moderated by anyone other than the host of the chat.

I am already paying for an IRC server for up to 200 slots for FC, but no one uses it :(

We've had it before, and a lot of people spammed it. :(

If people were actually going to be mature with it, I'd say let's give it a shot.

I am not sure how it can be implemented but if it is refined so that the chats can be within armies, squads even, that may reduce the spamming due to the members associated with each chat group and penalties that would be imposed by the mods- Leaders

well, you do get the person's REAL name, so... i mean, most of the people on there are known by name anyways.

protip: advertise better. i didn't even know that it existed. I still wouldn't know how to even get to it. give links.
