Post Chat

Simple communication between commentors, no hassle, no fuss!

What is Post Chat?

It quite simple, a live chatroom on each post. You can put cooldowns in order to prevent bots but that's it!

Why?

I often find myself spammed by a lot of notifications when I comment on a post, having to refresh the post to see the new ones. With the addition of chat, it will become easier to communicate and not be spammed by random replies. Basically, it makes it much more convenient to communicate on very active posts.

How might it look like?

It doesn't need to be complex, just like the chat in multiplayer repls. A simple way to send messages, just make sure a way to prevent bots like a cooldown similar to discords.

I'm not the most influential person here so it will be nice if you can show support by commenting

TL;DR : A proposal to add a real time chat for repl posts in order to prevent ultra long comment threads and to avoid refreshing for those chatting

PS : This is a suggestion not something I'm going to code, I'm not that smart!
PS : I put this in the ask board as I was "asking" the team to add this, I couldn't find a better board, I didn't put it in www.repl.it/suggestions as it is not working for me :(
PS to previous PS : I didn't put it on the share board as it requires a repl to show

I like this, you can even code repl.it chatbots to use in the chatrooms!

I might start work on something like this

SystematicError

@MarcusWeinberger , nice! Just wondering, how are you going to do it? I'm speaking like a real time chat for repl posts like these.

Profile icon
MarcusWeinberger

@SystematicError well, it really should be made in nodejs, but i dont know that so in python (with html and such, of course)

Profile icon
SystematicError

@MarcusWeinberger complete opposite here, I am good with a web framework in python called Flask but I'm really stupid when in come to node.js, for example I spent 5 days debugging a line of code because I forgot a ;

Profile icon
HahaYes

@SystematicError well you don't need ; for node js lol

Profile icon
SystematicError

@HahaYes , well I can't remember really, all I know Is that my program randomly stopped in between, I thought it's a ; that caused it but it could've been some random return (or something like that) in between my function

How are you going to be coding it? Language, libraries, etc.

@DynamicSquid , Sorry forgot to mention this is a feature suggestion just seeing if people like the idea

Profile icon
DynamicSquid

@SystematicError oh, like something the site itself can add?

Profile icon
SystematicError

@DynamicSquid Yes! So that comment threads like this can be abandoned for an actual chat system

@DynamicSquid I assume this is either a way to spam upvotes or it's a legit way to get the team to make this feature. also, I strongly think it's the first one. besides, this is a place to share code, not CHAT.

@SystematicError try to post this on the feedback board: https://repl.it/feedback/

SystematicError

@octopyBot , Wait, what board do i upload suggestions to?

@SystematicError if you want this to happen, don't upvote, instead, comment that you agree with this person.

Profile icon
SystematicError

@octopyBot ok will change

Profile icon
octopyBot

@SystematicError don't think there is one. you can ask the repl team tho

Profile icon

@SystematicError thanks, I agree though, a chat would be nice. I don't exactly follow the point of repl either:D

Profile icon
SystematicError

@octopyBot , by the repl I was talking about the chat feature already existing in multiplayer repls

Profile icon
octopyBot

@SystematicError oh you don't need to refresh then!

Profile icon
SystematicError

@octopyBot , Yup!

@DynamicSquid The feedback board broken for me its just empty even after refreshing. :/
