Wether it be a java applet, or a channel on mIRC, it'd be nice to have a chatroom for the site!

Already suggested this, but I wanted to see what everyone else thought. :]

Not a bad idea. Don't think I'd use it much, though.

This is one of the most anticipated features for me. It gets lonely when there are no new posts. :(

Drunkmiffy has actually already made a thread on this. Cartman said it was low on the priority list. Though that was a few weeks ago. I wouldn't want one at the top of the Forum Page though.

Seriously, opening an mIRC channel would be nice. Just put up the information somewhere in a post for everyone to log in. It'd be nice to talk to everyone in real-time, you know? d:

I have an IRC. You can join it by doing:

/server irc.rizon.net
/join #LBPCreatorsGroup

Open to all.

Awesome. Heading there tonight, then!

EDIT: Erm, we could still use one for LBPCentral...

Okay. This is better than a built-in chat.

Hahah! Could you imagine that? Oh, the joys it would bring...

Although, to be honest, I don't like playing betas or demos much. I rather just wait for the final product so I can get truly blown away.

Then again...I wouldn't mind the beta for LBP. >.> Hmmm... Wishful thinking, though!

Haha, if I had a way for all of us to get into the Beta, I'd tell you instead of hinting wildly. You guys are just gonna have to wait and see what we've got in store for the future.

Fair play though cartman - if there was some way to get say even 5 beta invites for the forums that would truly be amazing.
Though i'm looking forward to what you've got up your sleeve.
I don't know why people are so desperate to know... we've got so much going on at the moment as it is!

Chat box and chat room could be a different thing. A chatbox could be a little box sitting at the top of the forum where people... well... chat.
E.g.
http://www.lostsos.com/forums/

OR there could be an actual chat room (which i would support) where you click a link and it opens a new tab/page for a chat room.

E.g.
http://www.interpolnyc.com/forum/index.php?act=idx
At the top it says 'Live Chat'.

No-one in that forum uses the chat box but it works well. i've talked a few times on there.

I would like a chat room. not a chat box.

Marino
08-20-2008, 09:38 PM
Agreed. The Chat room could be a separate tab next to the arcade. That would be really neat & it shouldn't be too hard to implement. :)

Still want the chatroom. :\

I feel your LittleBigPain. A chatroom would make it easier for LBPCSacks to communicate. With chatrooms, Sackpeople can ask questions that do not warrant a separate thread.

As I said before..

A Sack can dream.. :(

I've been on undernet for over ten years. I've chosen a new one and it's ....ta-da... #littlebigplanet no mods-no interest in registering the channel either. If someone wants to that'd be cool. There's also the same channel on quakenet. That one might fill up later. I'm sure something "official" comes along.

Marino
08-26-2008, 06:55 PM
I'm willing to try out #littlebigplanet.

Anyone want to tell me how to enter the room? I'm completely new to IRC-type sites. :o

BasketSnake
08-26-2008, 06:59 PM
you need mIRC or any other program

And Youtube video support killed the sackboy radio star ! :O

Poor dead sackboys... must be recycled or cremate, what would you choose lol.

Anyhoo, I believe a chatroom would be nice, probably :D

So what server are we using again. I've seen several mentioned. I'd rather not juggle multiple servers. :)!

[something odd is going on cartman, can't edit my posts with mirc related stuff]

aer0blue
08-27-2008, 10:12 PM
The forums wouldn't become useless at all. We would just avoid lame or needless threads... But in depth discussion will continue to go on here.

Yeah. The main reason I want chatrooms is because I hate waiting for new posts. :(

aer0blue
08-27-2008, 10:21 PM
Not to mention we get to know each other a little better, considering we're talking in real time. I still think we should give the chat a go. :]

EDIT: Ok yes, it'd be a good idea. I'm finding myself hitting F5 way too often...

Marino
08-27-2008, 11:17 PM
What are waiting for? Someone make a chatroom please. I have a IRC program that I might be able to get to work. Can anyone recommend an IRC client for Mac just in case this one (Snak) doesn't work?

aer0blue
08-27-2008, 11:20 PM
Someone get to it! :\ Problem is, it wont be considered the "Official LBPCentral" chatroom... CC or lbp, any suggestions? ;D

Marino
08-28-2008, 12:15 AM

I'm sure we can get an official chatroom somehow.... ;)
please? xD

or with old skin..

please? xD

Come oooon, anyone volunteering? =D I used to go to srk.com (I think)...an old Fighting Game board. It had a chat (on IRC)...and the forums never died or anything like that. Was cool...

I'm gonna make this clear for you guys: Feel free to make your own chatroom for the site. Name it after the site if you want. The actual forum, on the other hand, doesn't need a chatroom. It would draw people away from actually posting in threads, and would be one more thing we have to take care of. It's a lot more work than you think when so many people would be using it, so it's just not something we're going to do.

aer0blue
08-28-2008, 02:24 AM
Hmm... Roger that, CC. 'deamor, care to make the unofficial LBPC then? d: As long as people go to it, I'll be there too. Knowing me, I'll leave my chat open 24/7, lol.

Marino
08-28-2008, 04:17 PM

Do you mind linking to it though, so more Sackpeople can come? :p

In your IRC program (I prefer Xchat), type:

/join #LBPCentral
