Not feeling it, yo.

So by now you have likely used the CC Chat room, brought to you by TinyChat. While it does have some advantages, there are some obvious problems that have come up:
 
No API Intergration, and from the looks of it none planned. We won't be able to synch it to Carbon Combat or Plexpedia in any way, plus the chat's chain of command does not end with CT at the top.
 
No way to sign in: Now this doesn't pertain to all people for for the majority we are all guests and at the bottom of the food chain in the chat room. So should some stranger come in with a Facebook account and sign in with that we are at their mercy (assuming the mod rules follow, see below).
 
Modship given out almost at random: Since we all are at the bottom of the food chain we are all at the same level, but the highest level person in chat is given Mod privileges. Now there seems like there can be only one mod so the powers of being a mod is given out at random to a person, which they then keep until they sign out and it is given out again by some method I still can't figure out. We have all now seen what chaos it is when Lamp is in charge at least.
 
Odd Link: Not actually a problem with Tinychat, but when you enter chat by the link at the top left then it uses a new tab to bring you there as opposed to staying on the same tab like the middle right link. I vote for consistency.
 
The Omega Kill-All Problem: I don't know any chat providers that are better. Anyone?

Modship is given to the first person to enter the room. Didn't you notice that?
If the current mod leaves the room, there is no mod unless everybody exits the room and then the first person who enters the room becomes the mod.
An example:
When you were the mod one day and you left(therefore there wasn't a mod), there wasn't anybody in the chat except me and lamp. I tricked lamp into giving me modship by asking him to leave the chat for 10 seconds. When he left, I refreshed and got mod powers (lamp entered the room a second after me).
:P
He know my plan but his connection was a tad bit slower than mine.

I like the TinyChat. It has a whiteboard, and YouTube/SoundCloud broadcaster. But if it ever does get changed, I want a link on the page that goes to the whiteboard (http://flockdraw.com/CarbonCombat).
 
FCA, read this.

Lamp, while I appreciate the thought, that list seems rather outdated and most of the links to chat providers either lead to shut-down sites, dormant sites or fake searches that lead to porn results. So we will have to look a bit deeper.
 
And lamp I know how much you love youtube and the whiteboard, that's one of the main reasons I don't like TinyChat. You on the whiteboard is panic and your video addiction needs to calm down a bit. Like, really, just a minute without them so I can get my computer to not show them, please.
 
Tropa, thanks for the explanation.

Little confused, the site seems to be a fake home page to a site. All those links seem to be trying to sell tickets. However I checked the blog and it seems legit, but the actual site of the home page is different.
 
You know what, TinyChat is starting to look a lot better than some of the other options out there. Thanks for the links. Gonna see if I can resolve this topic myself.
