We Have a Xat Box?

Post by Zwall99 on 3/5/2012, 7:48 pm

hey guys, i was just thinking about ways to get oasis more popular, and i had a brilliant idea: "I could make it a xat box!". so i go on to make us one, and before i start, i decide to see if we had one. we did. www.xat.com/oasissmp. its abandoned, and idk who made it though. im still going to make us one, even though we "have'' one already. heres the low down on it before i make it

Xat is a chat site for making chat boxes.
there are 5 ranks:
Owner Primary
Owner
Mod
Member
Guest (Default)

When i make it:
Admins + Ariley + Sainteven will be made owner primarys
Guides-Mods will be owners
Trusted, Trusted+, Architects, Artisans, Vets will be mods
Members will be members
Guests will be guests.

Since im going to make it, im automatically makes me Owner Primary, so im gonna be helping out.
im going to make it this weekend so tell me what you think and some tips on what it should be like.

It's a chat box. It's not for topics like forums. It's literally composed of a screen with messages and a type box with a send button at the basics. I understand the forums has a chat box, but xat has millions of users. This would increase the popularity of the server and make it even more awesome. The forums are not meant for chat, but topic and replies. Xat is meant for chat only.

Xat = Retarded People + Annoying Sounds and Stupid Emoctions = People thinking Oasis is stupid because we have Xat

I still think it'd make oasis more popular. And my debate with the fact that we have teamspeak is that Xat is a website. Not a download. Teamspeak is awesome, yes I will agree, but not everyone ( and me) can/wants to download it. Im feeling this would make a nice touch. But, if you guys feel like this is a really dumb idea, I probably won't make it.

Oh, and another thing. Before anyone says: "Hey wait, we have a chat box on the forums. What's the point of this?". Xat is its own website. The chatbo we have is only here, and can only be viewed here. Xatboxes can be viewed on xat and individual Xatboxes are commonly put on peoples personal websites. Making this would pretty much be like putting out a billboard in some ways.

On top of this, I think it would be pretty fun to have one.

I'd say there's no way of knowing if it will work unless we try it.
Either it fails or it catches on, I still think it may be worth a try even though it does seem redundant cause of teamspeak AND in-game chats.

See this is where i dont get it. If we have ingame chat, which is instantaneous, and the forums, which is for more in-depth topics, what do we need this for? we are fine in terms of advertising. and besides, we can only handle 50 people at a time. If we increase taht anymore, it doesnt feel like a tight knit family anymore.

There actually is a video chat feature. But it's mostly play-by-play text chatting. It's relatively addictive believe it or not. I learned that personally.

Mick you are just not open to new ideas. It's would be FUN. It's a chat box. Let's say one day you don't feel like going on minecraft but wanna talk to oasis people. This would be an alternative.

Mick, I give up with you. Lemme put this in words you can understand. It would make oasis more popular in ways. It's going to be fun. What can you not understand? Some people can download teamspeak. This does not require downloads.

Well, xat has just over 1,000,000 users. Chances are, some of them will join the chat possibly looking for a minecraft server and try oasis out. Xatboxes are often featured on xat's homepage with a lot of others. People can also specifically search things. For instance "Minecraft Server" and boom, the find us. I can also probably take a try at advertising the chatbox.

All in all, it's just a new idea. If it doesn't work out, then it doesn't. But as AJ said, we won't know unless we give it a try.

Take my word for this. I'm the xat expert. I spent the summer of '11 addicted to the site and now I pretty much know all there is about it.

I just found out that there are some complications that are nescisary to make one of these. If it proves too haphazard, it may not be made. Idk for sure yet. I may have read something wrong.

And you don't think other people know about xat? I will tell you right now I've been on Xat and have had my own chat boxes for over a year now. This will just make things more complicated and I strongly disagree of this. It's completly unecessary. I also have a few reasons why:

1. You cannot be the "Primary Owner", you'll have to let ariley be it, sso in this case, he has to make the box.
2. Oasis has chat in the server, and take my word, no one will get on the chatbox because it's just a nuesense. <-- Idk how to spell.
3. The chatbox wont improve anything because it will take more work to talk on the server and in the chatbox, so Oasis will absolutely NOT be improved by this.
4. This is certainly a unique idea, but in the long run, it'll just be a lot of work put into nothing.
5. You have to pay to get more power ups and smileys and things that make chat fun.
6. There can only be 1 "Primary Owner", and that is the person who makes the chatbox.
7. There are alot of cheats and glitches for xat (For a player to get a rank that he does not deserve or have)

Nonsense. Also you just nail'd it, proving a Xat box won't do anything good apart from Popularity.

Mefabe, here's where your wrong. There can be multiple primary owners. Infact, the term primary owner just means people that have the chats password and can make people owners. And it would improve oasis because this acts as another way for people to discover the server. And dude, I've said this innumerable times, it's only a new idea. If it doesn't work than it doesn't work. Let's just give it a shot and stop criticizing it.
