SC Instant Messenger...
 
Hey Marc, I saw a new feature at another message board where the members can IM each other. I think it's a feature some folks would be interested in. Sounds interesting to me, though I don't know all the details and if it would work due to my lack of technical skills.

Good idea. I've always wondered what it would be like to IM myself :D

Rob: Hey Rob, what's up?
Rob: Nothing much. And You?
Rob: Not too much here.
Rob: What should we talk about now?
Rob: Hey, you IMd me.
Rob: Don't get pissy now. If you're gonna be that way, let's just not speak to each other.
Rob: Fine.

















Rob: Quit thinking inside my f'n brain ya bastard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Your helpful comments do nothing but confuse people. I've reread this thread twice trying to figure out if you're making a sarcastic joke. Go back to being old, angry and bitter.

This guy is amazing...135 posts and I honestly believe every single one has at least made me chuckle out loud.

Got a link to what you're talking about? PM me and I'll take a look. If it's a feature on a board running different software, I can't help. But the way I see it, people will just IM each other rather than post ... this could be detrimental for the boards.

Or, maybe people will IM each other, which would keep them on the boards more than they are now, which could lead to more posting.

The vBulletin package does not inherently come with an IM app with it. I did a little poking around and found some discussions on it and a few had used some mods or third party plug-ins and they either killed server performance or were found to have major security holes.

Take it for what it is worth, it looks as though it can be done but it comes with some significant trade offs and there are some potential security risks that could mess with the performance and availibility of the site altogether.

I'd still like to see youtube embedding. I think that'd be real cool.

Guys, I'm not a software developer. Take these ideas to the people at vBulletin. I'll do everything I can do to enable a feature that exists if you want it, but it's over my head for me to develop new features for another company's software.
