I like this, but it should be a free global feature imo, not a group power.

 

Perhaps there could be a new icon next to tickle, showing u who mentioned u on which chat, with a redirect link? And instead of green it flashes in red or blue? 

 

An example how it could look like:

opening up this thread again up for discussion

I think this idea is original

 

thread was set to poll only so no one could really comment, but that is fixed now and that is reason I am bringing this topic back

 

I originally suggested it in old forums and I am the original creator of this idea

 

I edited the post while back?

if there is anything I missed let me know

 

any more suggestions or anything needs to be fixed just comment it below

thank you for your support

@Techy @Maverick

something about this seems oddly familiar...

 

It's the same screenshot from the post below - maybe that's it.

I like the idea but I think it should be introduced as a individual power.

For example, you can mention and be mentioned only if you have MENTION power.

 

Users can be mentioned by @ + Register (xat username)

"Hey @BobTestAccount" 

 

Using the image posted as example, the "special text style" added on the mention would be seen only by users who got the power.

Users without the power would see it without the style/effect. That means you can only mention other users if you got MENTION power.

 

Macro ideas:

$maudio=audioname Sets one of the xat audies to play once you're mentioned (default PING)

$mlimit=1 Sets limit of how many times you can be mentioned by the same person every minute (default 1)

 

This can be adapted to work with mobile since you can already link a regname to its profile using @ on mobile.

So all the power would need to do is play a sound once your regname is mentioned (which is a good method for notification)

 

Would be nice if the sound played even if you had the mobile app minimized (cute)

originally it was going to be a regular power

i was thinking about limited power but some people thought it would fit better as a feature

 

i like your explaination

 

what would be the macro for turning it off or on maybe: $mset=off $mset=on  or something like that?

or $mset=0 $mset=1  where 0 is off and 1 is on?

 

thank you @Cupim

 

i think it is time for a feature power and that is what this originally was. it has really good used and would be great as well for people in multiple chats or afk. it will be like bump for main chat.

 

maybe add support for both main chat and pc/pm

even though i dont see why someone would use it in pc/pm since its one on one

 

thank you for the support

Definitely a feature that should be optional.

that what everyone want it to be a feature power

 

originally it was a group power and anyone in the group can use it as long as it was activated and people with the actual power had settings other things to use.

 

that was the plan  (mention) then later on make (nomention) like noaudies and nopc and nopm type smilies.

 

admin can still change this and convert this into any power he wishes or keep it a feature

 

but having (mention) and later on (nomention) would also be an option on the table

 

I made the vote so everyone can have a voice and state what they want to see in the future (power or feature)

Because its a different name perhaps and it couldn't be found?

 

Why don't you post your topic in here, so ideas can come together.

I think like @LaFleur. It should be a free power.

 

Thank You,

Free power isn't a good idea, i think that it could be better if it would be a feature.

Free feature, not a power

Only reason it would be a power is if it did send a sound

 

Serves as a hyperlink to open user dialog

 

Anyone can see them

 

@Admin You should already have the code for it... from @Techy

As a free feature, of course this could be a power too. 

 

How it should work, if I get mentioned

 

1. If power is bought, @function is enabled

2. New icon next to tickle appears

3. If yoi get mentioned, icon gets red

4. Onclick, the tab shows the name of the person who mentioned you + the chat name with redirect the person is on

 

If I mention

 

1. I have to type @ xat username or userid in order to mention

2. @nameorid gets a button background in the chat

 

Possible options

 

1. A person can only be mentioned every 5min, prevents spam

2. Only friends can mention me

3. No one can mention me

This just butchers the whole idea.

 

It's supposed to be a replica of what other services have. Someone types @username/ID and the person you mention will hear a special noise and the mention will be highlighted in some way (a la Cleon's image). You can choose to hear mentions from everyone, your friends or no one.

 

Mentions from other chats etc. are just overkill. Why would someone mention you from another chat?

the point of Mention is to get notified when someone mentions you regardless what chat you are in so you know who is talking about and you can join the conversation

 

^ this can be changed or modified if needed to work only in current chat if multiple chat support is not available

 

sound Is important so you know when you receive a notification but is not required I like the idea of red icon or other ideas

 

this is meant for not only to get notified when someone mentions you but also good when your afk, or in multiple chat that's the main purpose

 

I AM OPEN FOR CHANGES

IF YOU HAVE ANYTHING TO CHANGE GO AHEAD I AM OPEN TO IT

 

it can be a power or feature doesn't matter

as long as the @ concept stays in tact

 

that is the main thing of this

 

the only thing that can't be changed is @ feature which is the key element as stated before

Same as what Daniel said, it should not be cross chat.

 

If you are talked about at another chat you are not present in, you should not be notified.

If you are talked about at a chat you are in, you should be.

 

It's the same concept as other services have.

I understand and like I said I am open to changes

can someone please make screenshots of how mention would work I am not a graphics designer

 

I am looking at everyone's opinion and I like the changes and appreciate all the support

 

should It remain a feature or a power

that is up to you

 

admin says he wanted more screenshots of the power in action or how it works so I need someone for that please.

The screenshots already provided give enough info.

Only thing not shown that I think should be added is hyperlinking it to open the user's user dialog.

 

They show the whole idea in its entirety.

 

It should remain a feature.

I don't see why it shouldn't be xat globally.

 

For example if the tab is clicked, it could show the text you got mentioned on

 

e. g.

hello @user699 can you come to this chat, some guy is asking for you

-2mins ago by user333 on flirt

 

this would be shown there, so you know why you've been mentioned

Isn't that what PC/PM is for?

 

Edit: There's also the search feature if you really want to know where you're being talked about.

Also, what about chats who have the options selected where they don't show up on search?

the key parts is the @ of course

and the noise

people have suggested things like tickle as well as red icon

 
thing is sound is important to know when your mentioned even so you can physically hear it but we do not want spam'
that is why I put in macros idea by Cupim I think it was to set settings on mentions and have option to turn it off or on completely.

I am fine with it being with local chat as long as key parts are kept into play like the @ feature.

sound is optional but I heard other ways to get notified when you are being mentioned

 

originally it was you can hover over tickle and all your recent mentions will be there

if you don't have tickle is the issue maybe your pawn turns into tickle when your mention

 

idk but I am open to ideas

originally the power was going to be a group power for this reason so groups can have the option to turn it off or on

and settings for mentions other things like limits and permissions

 

however the poll states most people interested it as a feature (maybe add macro options for settings)

 

group power was going to be everyone in the group can use it as long as it was activated

 

but vote says otherwise

Not actually the worst idea for this. Group power settings w/ gcontrol changing whatever.

 

Though in my experience I haven't seen the concept really used often enough to require a group power, but to me it sounds like the best alternative if it's not a free feature.
