When downloading a chat log maybe the option to search for a certain time period and also being able to set the countrys timezone to match that of the users timezone.(Chat logs)

Private Chat by double clicking on a username in the list.

Silence command so an Admin can silence a user for x minutes

Voice command so an Admin can give voice back to that user

Bots so you can be having a game with a bot whilst waiting for someone else to enter chat.

Downloadable chat log available to Admin.

Before I'd buy IP Chat, it needs to have the following:
(Some of them it may already have, the features list on the IPB website isn't exactly long).

* Private Chat
* Multi-rooms with permissions (i.e. the person who created the room has rights to kick etc..)
* Moderated chat - i.e. so we could hold an interview with someone on the chat and people can't interrupt between the interviewer and the interviewee
* Rooms with passwords (i.e. so the mods can get together and have a chat about members on the forum without everything hearing what they think of them! lol
* Ability to invite people into the chat
* Board has an icon next to a person's post when a thread is viewed saying they are in the chat, even if the last action they did was to browse a thread (i.e they have chat open in one window and browsing in another).

I find chat rooms aren't in much demand. Usually a few diehards but 99% of regulars never use it.

Private Chat has been discussed but I dont see it going anywhere....
Mutli-Room is planned for future versions, I believe it was said somewhere.
Moderated Chat: http://community.inv...-chat-feedback/
Password Rooms: +1 for this. Good idea.
Invite into chat: http://community.inv...5
Icon: This would be a great feature, would love to see this.

I have a suggestion.

Even if you have it set to allow guests access to the chat room, they still can't access or even see it if your boards closed to guests.

If a guest trys to access a members only boards chat room they should be able to see it but be met with a prompt encouraging them to become a member to use it. You see what i'm trying to say?

It doesn't work that way I'm afraid. IPB checks if the board requires you to login BEFORE it lets any application execute, so it's not possible for chat (or any other application) to show stuff to guests if the settings require guests to login before accessing the board.

I've not seen this option suggested yet but how about a report feature? Perhaps the user could click on the offenders nickname next to the link they've just entered and select "Report this line" or similar.

The other thing that could be handy is a /help feature which could list all the switches like /report, /msg, /join etc - whatever gets added in the end.

/help would be neat if there were more than one command. Right now it's just "/me" so it's not really needed I think, but in the future it might be.

Yes, I was referring to future releases when presumably there will be more commands. ;)

Is it possible to have a hook to the right of mainforum, like a lightversion of the chat so users reading the board also could see/write in in chat like latest status hook?

/status would be great.


+1 for a status feature. Could be an "away" checkbox or something which can show if the user is not paying attention to the chat at that moment.

I feel that there should be an option somewhere to make a users profile photo appear between their name and the colon when they write something in the chat. Currently their photo appears next to their name in the user list, but in the actual chat all of the names are just the same shade of grey and it can make it difficult to differentiate who is speaking quickly.

While the grey names give the chat a very classy and minimalist look, I still think I would prefer something more functional. Though I don't really like the idea of assigning users random colors either.

When we add multiple rooms (which we will)...

Sweet, can't wait, thanks! Any timeframe on this? We'd love it with even just two rooms. One public, and one for only Admins/Mods. Right now I've locked out everyone but Admins/Mods so we can have discussions freely without worrying about regular users wandering in and out and seeing things they shouldn't.

What about a <Clear Text> feature, so any Admin can hit it and clear all prior text/history in that room. Any plans for that?

I'm all for the moderation, invite, and multiple room features sometime in the distant future, but how about some simple features sooner?

1) Text styles that stick. I don't want to format text for every post.

2) A pop-out so the bare bones room floats instead of opening the room in a new window. I don't want the whole page with the header if I'm going to float the room.

I'm guessing these two could be added without much trouble, and would be enough for me to ditch the Java IRC workaround that I've been using since 1998 and pay for the Invision room.
