Because it was being a pesky, quirky thing, Guild Chat has been completely rewritten.  Aside from everything working the way it should, it has had some niceties added:
  • Notification by "System" when a user enters or leaves the room.
  • Sound Effects (which can be disabled using the checkbox to the lower right) when new chat comes across.
  • No longer brings itself to the front of all other browser windows. We had a long talk with it, gently explaining that it might not be the most important thing you're doing on the web at any given moment.
  • Allows the playing of a (currently) small list of available sound effects using the /sound sound_name_here command. Current list includes things like machine_gun, kiss, phone_ringing, rifle_shot, baby_cry_1, baby_laugh (to cheer up the kid from baby_cry_1), and, of course, flushing_toilet. Some sort of listing system for available commands and sounds will be coming.
Also, the Control Panel has had some issues addressed, informally, with a crowbar to the back of the neck.

Thanks for the notice! Is there any way to bump permissions above associate? I've tried hiding the chat on a page with member level, but sadly, the link in the welcome usercp box on the homepage shows up irregardless. I do like the chat look so far!

Hi, I do think you can do that at this time-  I will put in on the request list!

Thank you!!!

Either the ability to remove the link (because associate can still access via the link) or the complete addition of a member level above associate would be great! It'd be nice to be able to make the chat a room for leaders only, if necessary.

Much appreciated!
