I think this was brought up in GTX's FAQ thread once before, and I just now decided to pose the question here. Without further ado...
What does everyone think about a Cbox
For those of you who don’t know, it’s a free and nifty little widget that allows you type in your name and up to I think 150 or so characters in a message bar. You can then ‘post’ the note up in the… er… box and chat with others without having to start a thread or post something on the more permanent forums. It just seems more casual and open, in a way. I know that WW already has its little chat-y thing, but it doesn’t work on my computer and thus I don't really know what it is.
Cbox also comes with its share of problems, though; it would be easy to become flooded with spam and people can much more easily impersonate others. Also, any way you do it would probably be unsightly because one) where would it go and two) a lengthy rules section would probably have to accompany it.
I’ve seen them employed on other roleplaying sites, and weighing the pros and cons I think it could be a nifty little gadget for WolfWeb to have, if you agree. Of course, I couldn’t be one to implement it (I don’t know a whit about these things), but I'm just throwing the idea out there and testing the waters, so to speak.
What's your opinion?
