Toxikyle:
Navarr: :...:
Navarr: i forgot how emotes work
TheConceptionist: jankily is how
TheConceptionist: emote picker when smh my head
TheConceptionist: pls don't smite me
Navarr: lol I think Chat box will actually be replaced by Discord imho
TheConceptionist: yeah i figured, this is still a nice thing to have though
TheConceptionist: a good first step would be linking the discord in the lobby description
TheConceptionist: and maybe the chatbox could just stay in a petrified state until the site becomes active enough to warrant it being used again
TheConceptionist: (also the emote you were looking for was hm or hmm)
TheConceptionist:
Toxikyle: I do like the chatbox
Toxikyle: I know discord is probably better in every way but there's a charm to this old thing
TheConceptionist: yeah, the chatbox has its quirks and advantages imo
TheConceptionist: it's nice to have an integrated solution to quick communication
Navarr: That's true but boy does it put stress on the website lol
TheConceptionist: is it really poorly optimized or do live chats just Be Like That
Navarr: It uses the best technology available for the time it was built
TheConceptionist: > late 2000s/early 2010s
Toxikyle: Wasn't it built in 2007?
TheConceptionist: i see the issue
Toxikyle: I know back during the days when forum rp was actually a thing, a lot of forums had offsite IRC chatrooms. One board I was part of tried to have an integrated chat instead. It... did not work
TheConceptionist: granted, something like an IRC extension would probably be the closest analog to the chatbox, but discord is the most consistent and feature diverse platform at the moment
Toxikyle: Yeah, I guess with upgrading or replacing the cbox, the first question will be "why not just use the discord?"
Toxikyle: And there probably won't be a good answer
TheConceptionist: i desperately wish that discord had some sort of browser embed for you to be able to look at a server, but alas it doesn't
Toxikyle: It would be nice
TheConceptionist: the main inconvenience is actually having to actively go to discord, make a separate account there, and then remember how to join
Toxikyle: I still don't think we should get rid of the cbox, if for no other reason than safety
TheConceptionist: although brutish, having everything in one place is arguably better ux
TheConceptionist: then again, i'm not a professional like Navarr, i just make discord bots on the side
TheConceptionist: ~~which i wouldn't mind making some sort of cbox-discord bridge provided a proper API~~
TheConceptionist: god i wish bbcode had strikethrough
TheConceptionist: or maybe it does and it just isn't listed
Toxikyle: it does
Toxikyle: I mean, when the whole site broke, the cbox was the only bit that still worked perfectly. When the Discord came in, the cbox remained here and somehow kept being used despite it being useless
Toxikyle: I don't think it's possible to remove the cbox anymore
TheConceptionist: exactly
TheConceptionist: in my perfect world, the cbox could be upgraded and optimized to promote its usage, but i know that likely won't happen, so at least keeping it around is the next best thing
Toxikyle: If Navs tries to get rid of the cbox, it will become sentient and rebel against its creator. It's not safe to get rid of it
Hyuponia: route 50 but the chatbox is self-aware
TheConceptionist: LOOK NAVARR, A USER
