We’ve been kicking the tires. In some ways it’s better, in some ways it’s currently lacking some of our favorite features of the OC system.
First public access is on this page here for the Xirta chat system 2021 V1
Here we will pull together the “how to” info – and the comments section on this page will serve as a suggestion / how to as well.
The Xirta system may go down for a few hours during big code updates or other reasons – if so, people will likely migrate to the peeps text chat system here.
As of initial launch of the new Xirta system, messages do not disappear within minutes or hours or whatever – like when you, or someone else enters a room, they may be able to see all the messages that were posted before – like hours before, maybe days before. I am working on changing that,
But privacy in other ways too may be different as I don’t have all the info of all stuff that this system keeps track of and for how long. It is certainly logging much more than our old system did, including semi-identifiable info like ip addresses, and keeping it longer than our old system. I am working on changing that – but no ETA and no guarantee what I do to code that will work as expected.
There are many planned updates / addons for this system, Some I think people will love, like more custom emotes and ‘stickers’.. some people will likely complain about – like an “ad bot” – don’t worry though, as new things are added they will be tweaked after initial setup.
My plan for the ad bot will be that it can be user choices for some things including types of ads and frequency.
I’m also experimenting with voice chat and video chat options – we may have to charge extra for video chat though. We’ll see how it all comes together. Maybe we can get some kind of supporter level membership if people would kick in $2 per month and have access to uncensored video chat or something.
Any how, much of this is very fluid and likely to change. Currently working on the speed and testing, then it’s more of the glamorous things to roll out. Hold on tight – it’s looking like the next year and future will be bright!
