Introducing HC Messenger !!

We've used the IM system since HC began, over 18,000 instant messages were sent back and forth between HC members. It was fast and efficient, but certainly had its drawbacks - some people failed to receive IMs due to popup blocking software, the messages were easy to lose by accident, and the many popups weren't a very convenient form of communication.

It's time for a new era. I introduce to you the Heroes Community Messenger. No downloads, no plugins, no java, no popups, all in one window, as fast as before, much easier to manage, with much added functionality.

Explore it for yourself. Click HC Messenger link at the top of this page, where IM Window link used to be. Maximize the window and enjoy

The integration with the rest of HC is still in progress, aside from that, the messenger is completely functional.

Let me know what you think

I really like that you can see if the message was read or not, very helpful

Note to members, you can't tell us mods that you didn't get our IM's anymore - that excuse won't work

*edit* another feature I am loving is that you can see your own sent messages! I dunno how many times I have had to ask someone what their replies meant because I don't recall what I said to them (when a message gets replied to days later etc) YaY!!

Couple of things

BB Code: Yes, I do plan to add BB Code to HCM, not sure about the images, but the text formatting, smilies, links and perhaps even text colours will be great additions.

HC Integration: If you click to send user an IM from a forum page, it doesn't work at the moment. I'll get to that shortly, as well as to the new message notifications on forum pages. Meanwhile, use this maual method to message users that are not online:

http://heroescommunity.com/im.php3?action=write&to=USERNAME

replace USERNAME with whoever you are writing to.

Yep, all the old IMs are still there and recipients can get them using HC Messenger. The sender can even see them in their Outbox.

when I click on send a message, the message
box is cut by the bottom of the page. As there
isn't a slider, I can't bring it up. Probably
a display problem of firefox. Meanwhile, your
message is at the top of the page with a slider
so I can view it. Maybe they need to be reversed.

The session expiry time is same as on HC before - if you don't open and HC pages for 10 minutes, your session expires. IM Window would do the same thing, but there was no option to extend your session without opening HC pages, now there is.

Shiva, have you maximized the HC Messenger window? Could you post a screenshot of what you see?

EDIT: Send Instant Message links now work on the index page, profiles and threads. If you have the HC Messenger running, the 'send' window will appear right inside it. If not, it will open as a separate window.

Index, Forum and Thread pages will now alert you of new messages.

Also, I've added a nice bell sound to HC Messenger - it sounds when you have unread messages.

I think Val said he's working on it, but he's not quite sure if the BB codes for images will be implimented. So the bold and italics stuff will probably be there eventually.

BB code is now active in HC messenger

In addition, red, green and blue bbcodes have been added!

Also HC Messenger will now give your message a randomised subject, just for the fun of it. Let me know what you think about this feature. If you like it, suggest new random subjects or say which ones should be removed/changed. The rule for random subject is that it must be 15 characters or less and not include ' " and &.

Ooohh, ahh... Yay a message!!

Perhaps a good idea would be to add a BB Code Guide to the Messenger Welcome Info, as well as update the FAQ with a Messenger How-to, we still have the "IM" section in the FAQ.

Ohh, is "Read This Now" one of your randoms? If so, methinks it's a bit grating on the nerves, just got one and didn't like it so much
