buddy chat

Recommended Posts

well something like @buddy would be nice to send a message to all online buddies at once. watch as this command already exists and i'm just being stupid...anyways, yeah, it'd be pretty nifty.

 

P.S. newbie island

Honestly, I don't see reason for such command. I mean, I love spamming people with crap, but why all of them at once?

ctrl-b

click on the buddy name

"hey bud #jc 65867"

@@68587 hi all

#ci

You are on channel 68587 and there are currently 1 players on this channel

 

I see a major problem with your idea:

30,000 accounts (I seem to recall seeing that somewhere)

how many possible permutations of friends could that make? and therefore how many channels could be joined by #jc buddy?

Wouldnt require any additional channels, could all be done as client side with PMs:

@buddy <msg>

Translated by the client as:

/Buddy1 <msg>
/Buddy2 <msg>
...etc...

The problem here is over use could add a lot of traffic to the server, repetition of information. A server side implementation would nearly halve this traffic, at the expence of server processing.

 

I doubt that there is a real need for buddy-group PMs though.
