Trash talk chatroom

Since anonymity is one of the core features of CM, I decided to toy around with subverting it a little in a way Jason can't control while its still private alpha.

So here's a chatroom to use. Use your CM name or a handle or whatever you want. Lie about what game your in, mess with your opponents or just trash talk someone you bluffed out of all their coins.

There might be a better hosting solution but this was free, persistent, requires no registration and works on a smartphone.

Enjoy!

Re: Trash talk chatroom

Yeah, I like this kind of thing!

So... the "game ID" isn't exposed in the protocol (otherwise, you could easily make a chat room for a given table).

HOWEVER, you could still do it according to board layout, because all boards are unique.

You'd have to code up a little web proxy that intercepted the CM protocol, scraped the board layout out, and then used that to connect two people together in a separate chat room.

Or even easier, you could just let people type in the top row of their board into the "join chat room" interface.... hmm... well, that wouldn't match the players up... maybe match them by "numbers that are around the 36?  So you would type in between 2 and 4 numbers, and that would let you join a room with your opponent, and then stay there with them as long as you want (you'd only have to match them on one board).  Still, they'd have to both join on the same board for this to match them together.

Or make separate chat rooms based on stake level?  So, you could be chatting in the 0.01 room or the 1.00 room.

Bump. Since we have so many new players, I want to make sure they all have a chance to see this. wink

Re: Trash talk chatroom

It's nice but can the admin turn on chat timestamps so I know how many hours ago someone asked a question? big_smile

Re: Trash talk chatroom

Bump as there are new players about.

Also thought I should mention that with the low number of people using this people should turn notifications on so that they know when people log on/post a message.
You can do this by clicking the little speaker icon in the top right hand corner.

Re: Trash talk chatroom

Jason, have you thought about having several different words and diagrams appear randomly in the upper left besides just the current minosons one? If that changed game to game, it could help people who are chatting and playing socially easily know they were paired up correctly.

^that's actually a cool idea.


Try Linux, get free. #!++ (CrunchbangPlusPlus) is a stable distribution based on Debian 8. Keep it fast, keep it pretty.
