Looking for a Chatroom

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any suggestions on a Chatroom I can embed on my popup player?


I would like it to have the abilty to just run it (PHP) on my server so people could sign up and reuse a user name. but if we could just do something where people could put in their name and start chatting durin the show would be great.


What do you all use?

We use a chat box provided by Xat. The chat itself is hosted by Xat & you add it to a page. It took up less station resources and I was still able to make it look a part of our station site.. Many of our DJs will play "chat games" during a show for points & over all winner will win a screen saver.. It is free, though there are subscriber options we just don't use them. Any of our listeners/chatters that want to they can.. I've opted to restrict our chat to "members", (a moderator or owner makes them a member as they enter).. There are several control options you can use - Colors & background for the chat box itself, grant or remove moderator status, grant or remove other owner status, members, subscribers, save chat history, boot/ban power & such.

Private chat & animated & non-animated smileys, (you'd be amazed how many ask for these!). I added a copy paste chat "cheat sheet" for our users.. Registration with Xat is up to each chatter they can or not as they wish..


As a new person/guest enters they enter with a "cutesy" name we ask them to change it to their reg screen name, (& tell them how)when we make them members.

Most are able to keep their name once they come & chat with us.. The big exception are those that use "cleaners" on their systems. One of my DJs uses one and I have to "re-mod" him each time he "cleans"..

In all its pretty easy to use..


If anyone would like to give it a try IM me on yahoo, (add the yahoo name in my profile), and I'll meet you over in our chat so you can give it a test drive..


Sorry to be so long winded just happy to be able to contribute!
