@TheJackal84: I'm not kidding you when I say this, I became that impressed with your chat application that I went ahead and purchased it. Not only that, however, it made me want to upgrade to IPS 4.4 something hadn't wanted to do until I saw this.
This is a great idea.
I run a fan site for my local football team, the match chat used to be very popular, but CometChat lost their heads and became bloatedware. One thing, however, I liked, was the ability to send voice updates. I would give the thumbs up to this idea, especially if you added settings that would enable only certain members to use the function. I or someone trusted could then give updates on the game as it happens (like commentary). 😍😍
I also like this idea.
The ability to attach/upload images from a smartphone or tablet would be awesome, I often shared pictures throughout games similar to the above voice function. It's useful outside of that as not everyone these days has a desktop computer and otherwise they might not be able to share images.
A dedicated chat room moderator(s) - (Allow us to choose who mods the chat rooms and pin them to the top of the online list).
Chat room logs - (very useful to read through incase anyone does something they shouldn't, otherwise without proof it becomes he said, they said).
Report chat messages - (like the above, if members could report comments live it would allow for better moderation and quicker action to be taken).
Disable sounds and notification alerts inside the chat room(s) individually.
Member statuses (Availible, Away, Busy) - (Useful to know if someone is absent, as it marks them and during a long conversation it allows people to notice easily).
Invite members (this would send a notification out asking a member to join x room).
Show who has seen each message (much like Facebook Messenger does).
-Ignore if it does- Does this block filtered bad words? If not, please support the default feature.
I think this application is wonderful, I almost considered buying an option mentioned earlier, however, I couldn't justify the price and I felt it wasn't quite right for what I needed. I can see this working well straight out of the box - yet I am seeing a lot of potential to improve it. Seriously, thank you for releasing and already taking on improving it by adding our suggestions. I hope it replaces the whole that IPS left when they disbanded their chat system as I feel this is perfect.
