New chat feature (in Changelog)

AdminLamuness July 13 2010 12:58 AM EDT


We've heard your cries. I've added the timestamp feature you've all wanted in chat.
  1. Time displayed in chat will be based on your system time. Due to the applet security model, I can't just go grab the server time as easily a server-side script can.
  2. You can't please everyone, but I'll darn try. If you don't want to see timestamps in chat/pm, you can use the command /timestamp [on/off]
  3. The /timestamp setting is not saved (I'm guessing this will involve database work). So if you want it off, you'll have to turn it off every time you come into chat.

Nice work :)

Oopsie, timestamp was not getting added to your own text.

Fixed better.

^^ Yay for stampings.

Awesome. This one will come in handy ;).

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] July 13 2010 1:35 PM EDT

The next feature I would like:

When you are "killed" or "kicked" from chat, it doesn't immediately close the window, but rather it tells you you have been kicked. So that you can see the chatlog.

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] July 13 2010 2:45 PM EDT

I have always wished for that. Would be a nice change.

AdminNightStrike July 13 2010 3:49 PM EDT

Fex - you have the source code :)

Demigod July 13 2010 3:54 PM EDT

Fex is far too busy working on the chatmail icon. (I'll never let it go!)

Great job, Lammy!

Sorry have to say it, just a little peeve of mine to notice these things. So its 12:46 am here or 00:46. My chat time is 24:46 though. I know some of us believe that is wrong as do I. Doubt its fixable but just thought I would mention.

Demigod July 14 2010 1:04 AM EDT

In other words, it's set to run from 1:00 to 24:59 instead of 0:00-23:59.
