(This thread's title has been renamed as there was a concern some people might have missed it.)

Consider it your personal invitation to an unofficial chat hosted on my site, intended for Acaeum member use:

http://deimos3428.acaeum.com/chat

It's still very rough around the edges, (basically I haven't done a darn thing except install it), so send me PMs on how to improve it.  

Hopefully, it will become a useful place to talk "live" to other Acaeum members, discuss ongoing eBay auctions, printing minutiae, etc.

You can even play an RPG if you want, as there's a rudimentary dice-rolling function.  (I'm brushing up on PHP as I type this, so the functions may improve as we go along.)

Hope to see you there.

Looks good, but I think I broke the dice.

Thanks to all that have shown an interest thus far; hopefully more than one of you will show up at the same time, eventually.  We currently have nine registered users!  :)

The bot presently active in the chat is there for testing purposes, and will likely get smarter as we go along, depending on how much time I can dedicate to writing rules for it.  As he can get annoying, I've moved him to a separate room.  Those that wish to play with an AI can join that room, or send him a private message (whisper).

The dice functions aren't very good, but they are present.  The one that best fits RPGs works as follows:
/d4t3 means roll 3d4.  

(I know, it's completely backwards.  I'm going to write a better one.  The numbers in the triangles are the values rolled, not intended to represent d4s, incidentally.)

Guys, sign up. Not only is it a pretty slick piece of work, but it's a whole new experience to chat with Acaeum members in real-time ... faster than PMs, even!  :wink:

(Registration takes about eight seconds, too, which I appreciated).

Good work, Lemur-Dude!

Fun to do.  Worth your time to sign up.

We just had six guys in there for a while ... many of whom are long-time members here ... it was truly an interesting way to spend an evening.

It's definitely worth a quick sign-up and test drive, for any of you out there who are sort of undecided.

Can I add my own bot to talk to your bot? Then I can just lurk and the two of them can slug it out.

Just a friendly warning:  Deimos made Badmike a chatroom moderator.  The sumbitch already kicked me off twice because my spelling was better than his.  8O

Power corrupts... :wink:

He was hanging around the chat anyway, I figure he may as well do something useful.  (Some of us have jobs, y'know!)

Are you using AOL?  I found I couldn't enter using AOL, I get in using Yahoo or straight from Internet Explorer.
