Chatbox?


Has the idea of a Chatbox ever been thought of or implemented before?
Their always nice to have as it allows quick chit chat on the site for whatever purpose.

Chatboxes can be helpful for anyone asking a question that doesn't necessarily need a thread or can't get on Teamspeak, also helps show outsiders who might be wanting to join the unit
that there is an active player base; while that is obvious anyway, it just bolsters that point.

Any chance of maybe seeing one around?

I suspect that Discord fulfils that function for us.

Yep.

Discord is one of the solutions for this at the time being. If people have specific questions about topics like mods, recruitment, joint operations or technical support they can contact people there.

A chatbox would most likely be public and so it would be another place that has to be moderated. In this case I don't think that the amount of time you would spend with moderation would be in relation on the benefits of having it.

Hmm that's a fair point, but I highly doubt a shoutbox would need moderation; public or not.
The chances of someone doing malicious activity in the shoutbox is next to none.

You’d be surprised. Think it works the way it is now.

Previous events that definitely happened led to the way things are at the time being.

Yeah, I’ve been part of communities in the past where forum chatboxes have been abused by Trolls and also bots.
