First games have been played via the chatbox.
Would work great if more people would join once in a while...
Or if Sean would put a link on his site ?

i just went in there, and no one was there. I agree that it would be great if people used it a lot.

It's true that many people use other chat tools like IQC and MSN. Our Y!M group has definitely encountered a few people who were reluctant to install Y!M because they were already using one of the other tools, though most eventually installed Y!M.

There's no easy solution to that problem, though we Slay players aren't the only ones who suffer from it. Blame the various software companies who developed chat solutions that don't work together. I think the future lies in the direction of applications (like GAIM?) that knit together the IQC, MSN, and Y!M worlds.

Until then, we need something that's practical and easy to use. The electronic mail option isn't practical because it's not real-time (though it has been a good way for some people to make initial contact and exchange Y!M IDs). Your chatbox seems functionally equivalent to Y!M, though it does not seem to me to be as easy to use (and it appears that I have to learn a couple of new languages to understand some of what is going on!).

I appreciate the fact that I can access the chat box with my browser and don't need to install additional software. (Sometimes I think Y!M consumes too many resources and bogs down my system.) On the other hand, one thing I like about Y!M is that it loads automatically when I boot my system, and I can see right away who is logged on and might be available for a game. With the chat box, I fear we'd have fewer games because prospective players would have to remember to go to that web site to see who's available. Most would probably end up doing something else.

To answer your questions about Y!M, you do not need to enter a chat box. Just add the other potential players to the main window. Bold lettering tells you who's logged on and who isn't. If you want to propose a game, you can either open a private channel to one person or create a conference and invite all those who are logged on. We use those private channels or conferences to set up games and distribute the IP address of the server to all players. Once you start a game, Slay has a built-in chat window which can be used for in-game banter.

Regards,
Mark

Just put a link to this chatbox on your desktop, its not that bad. I do wish there was a realy simple one though that had nothing but the names of those logged in and what they are saying.
