Hey. Thanks for your work
Here's my take on it :

Actually the cam works great but apart from the text box. Sometimes I can't use sound on cam so I like to communicate by text.
On the previous chat room I had the cam and the text box on the same windows now it's hard to follow.

You can open the chat twice in different tabs: https://www.meetfighters.com/chat
(In fact, you can open the chat on as many devices and in as many browsers (tabs) as you want at the same time)
Move one tab to the left, the other the right.
Then you can chat in one window and cam in the other one.

  • Please do not force me to find a chatter in the list, but allow me to directly click on the user name/avatar next/above their "spoken" line to start interacting with them.
  • Please visually distinguish lines spoken by chatters who have logged out since; e.g. so that I know they are not around and won't read my comment before replying, that I should not try to find them in the list and initiate interaction with them.

This is already implemented, the Username is grey then.

I miss a preview of the profile to get some stats of the user before opening the profile. The old chat had this option.

So far I cannot find Smileys. When I add a Smiley from the virtual windows keyboard then the last lines of the chat are gone for several seconds before they reappear with my message.

In the older chat I got a windows message when my nickname was printed. So when I was in another tab of the browser I got a reminder to go back to the chat. That does not happen now, even if the @ is put before the name. I use windows 10 with chrome.

Like every change it is a bit confusing but I think I will get used to it :-)

Age/height/weight would be a good compromise. I think many liked this function to read a summary of the profile without visiting it.

When I click on the smiley button I only see six fightemoji which opens a submenu with very "unusual" emojis. :-)

I agree with all seniorboxers points. At least age/height/weight without going to their profiel would be good - and what wrestling styles they are into. I don;t seem to be able to leave the chat without having to use the browser backwards arrow to get back to the main site - otherwise I end up at a blank page asking if I would like to reconnect as the only option - since I have just disconnected, this seems a bit bizarre. Will the blue ball appear next to someone's name on other lists - such as messages - when they are chatting? That was always very useful to see immediately if any friends were on chat.

What I liked about the other version that I don't see here is the ability to quickly tap on a wrestlers name and see the basic stats like location and height and weight without having to fully open his profile. If you can duplicate that here, that would be nice.

I like that the verified wrestlers are integrated with those of us who have not verified but our previous opponents and recommendations suggests we are real and really wrestle, into on alphabetical listing rather than having the two alphabetical listings.

The chat looks great! I am looking forward to more and more customization options once everythin is stable! Also great: Message history in private chats and rooms!! Cam/Photos are working well too!

My personal feedback / points that can/could be improved on:
Notification sounds only when you're mentioned for the main/official chatrooms, but always for private messaes and rooms (If that is even possible)
Possibly adding an option for custom mentions - like getting notified if someone writes "Schnitzel" if I put that in.
As others already said, possibly try adding a person's basic info (age/height/weight) before having to actually visit the profile. Maybe with an option for more thorough info (time on site/past opponents/recommendations, credits to IKF for that!). The profile text however should not be visible. I don't like stalking people like a ghost and I don't think that it should be possible to do so.

Couple of things I’ve noticed. 1) The profiles are ordered alphabetical with no special preference given to verified profiles. 2) The new chat link does not open a new tab unlike the old version.

playfulwrestler (9 ) 12 days ago

Overall, looks very nice.

Although the color contrast seemed low, I checked it out with the Chrome color contrast analyzer plugin, and it looks as if it passes the test.

It would be nice to have a light theme (dark text on light background) with increased contrast.

Also, the previous chat allowed you to see a short form of the profile without having to open the entire profile. That was a nice feature.

Currently, the background and text colour fix. You can only change your username colour.

Btw. The chosen colour is recommended from some scientific research. What is meant to be good for the eyes. But of course, everyone has other preferences.

I think about a classic black/white version.

At the moment, there are no tabs in Chat that allow you to return to the main MF site. The only way you can switch between Chat and MF is to open somebody’s profile from the sidebar in the chat room. I too can only get six emojis. Speaking with other users, these issues seem only to affect Mac users. (Sorry!) However, it’s a beta version... nothing is perfect first time round. And it’s way better than its predecessor. Thanks for all your hard work; it’s appreciated.

Scrolling

I think that is a tricky problem. I use windows10 and chrome. When I wan to read older messages and scroll up with the mouse wheel, it goes back to bottom if another user writes a new message. If that happens every few seconds, I am not able to read. What does work, is to go to the scroll line at the right end of the window and hold it with the mouse left button.
Seems to be the same with the window for users who are online, as there are attending and leaving users all the time, scrolling does not work with the mouse wheel.

But again, most function work on the first day, that is amazing

There is some goodness in the new chats. A couple of points that could be improved:

1. No way to see overview of chat user profile from within main chat window (used to be able to see user's location, etc.). Don't need the full profile, just enough to know if it makes sense to look at their full profile.

2. No notification if you are in 1 window and someone mentions you in the main window. Any post in any window gets the same audible click.

Appears to be designed for non-adults, too many colours and big shapes, and very distracting and kills the mood. This is supposed to be a combat meetup site for adults, instead it appears to be made for little kids. Less is more; simple is better. The original design was really the best and I hope it remains a choice. The ignore button was a very useful feature. I would rather the admin focus on tightening up its rules on discrimination, as apparently making profiles filled with offensive and highly inappropriate ageist language and other body-shaming context continues to be allowed.

First off want to say thanks for the hard work on the new chat it seems to be looking good. So a few things that other guys have pointed out as well in chat. the notifications of new messages in main chat I know you can mute the sound but a way to mute just the sound in the main chatroom but keeping the notification sound in private chats would be great. I see the preview option when you click on a name has been implemented thanks. also the ablility to click on a name that pops up in the chat window that would bring up a mini window like when you click on a name in the list of chatters would be great so not have to scroll thrrough the list of names. Like the addition of typing @and have a list of chatters pop up to quickly tag someone in a message in main chat.

Three more items as I continue to try out the new chat:
1. If you are moving between main window and private chats, when you come back to the main window you will have been scrolled back up a couple of dozen lines from where you left. You'll have to scroll back down and try to find where you left at so you can see what's new.

2. I see where you've said we can limit audible notifications to when someone uses @myusername in a window, or a new private chat is started by someone with you. However, when I open "preferences" it only has the clickbox to mute all notifications. Where is the "Mute except for me" function you mentioned?

3. When in a private chat window, you can't click on a user's name at the top to open his profile in a new window. Have to go back to main chat window, find him in the list there, then open his profile.

Thanks for adding numbers makes it easier to replay.

1) yes, the hole scrolling experience has still some glitches. It works more or less good depending on your browser. I hope we can improve this next week. I’m unhappy myself.

2) I think I was unclear. This WILL be implemented. It is not active yet.

3) In private chat you have to click on the main button (hamburger button) to open profile, block, favorite etc.

If you open the overview of all your tabs the chat should still be there?!
If you close the open chat in the background then you can click the button again.

Works: basic usage, text chatting, favorite/block/report user links, private chat.

Cannot webchat in private chat. Firefox asks for permission to use the cam. I only see myself and cannot be seen, it is stuck at "Waiting for OtherUser" when calling, it is stuck at "Waiting for hug90" when I'm being called.

Overall great!

Only thing I don't like is that "click" sound notification every time anyone says anything in the chat room. Before I only heard the click when people were private messaging me. So if I'm multi-tasking, I'm constantly having to check to see if someone is private messaging me because of constant chat room clicks.

I tried the Beta Chat twice today. This afternoon - it worked well.

This evening, not so much. Switching between private chats. Returning to a chat I found the page had gone to the top of the chat. Same when switching back to the main chat room. Took me a few seconds to figure this out - the main chat room went back to the time before I entered the chat room - so several pages back in chat history.

New chat is really awesome so far. The only thing I feel could be changed is being able to modify the notification preferences for each individual room/chat. Similar to the old chat where you could chose when you were notified, and have those settings be different for each chat or room. Specifically the sound notification.

matwork21 (13) 10 days ago

Congrats, and thanks. I notice that several suggested improvements have already been implemented. Waiting patiently on the "notifications for me only" thing, as I realize that takes more work. One new (minor) item:

1. Not sure if its just my old eyes or others have the same thought, but some of the colors used for text are too low a contrast for the black background and therefore can be difficult to read. Particularly the right pane listing of folks online. Some colors are high contrast, and some are not. I've tried playing with the preferences brightness slider, but it is still a problem with some colors.

Thanks for listening.

First thanks for all the work, and an awesome new chat! Now for the bugs...

1. It's not possible to copy-paste text out of the chat. (I like to save chat logs so I don't forget who someone is...)

2. (This has already been mentioned many times but...) Scrolling issues on Firefox with Mac OS 10.13.
I scroll to read older messages in a chat. After a few seconds the window automatically jumps back to the newest message. In a private chat, this happens even without a new message coming in – I can't see what causes the jump.

Translate

1) Don't use ctrl+A to select the text. If you mark the text with the courser it should work.

Thanks, that works!

One more thing: copying with the keyboard shortcut "Command-C" doesn't work for me. As soon as I press "Command" the text gets deselected.

But if I (1) mark the text with the cursor, and (2) use the pull-down menu ("Edit –> Copy") to copy the text, it works.

Translate

(In reply to this)

Yes, the copy&paste needs some rework.
I'm thinking about a 'copy to clipboard' button. ; or making ctrl+A and ctrl+C work.
But this would come after the stabilisation and bug fixing phase. When the Chat leaves the beta.

Translate

Admin 3 days ago

(In reply to this)

Member created rooms (the ones without the 'official' flag) are managed by the system automatically:

  • If a Room is inactive for 24h the room deletes itself. Inactive = no message posted in 24h & no online member currently logged in to the room
  • Additionally a room also gets instantly closed and deleted if ALL members inside the room are actively closing the room (clicking the little 'x') Only disconnecting from the chat is not enough here.
  • Rooms getting manualy closed when the room NAME is against §2 or §3 of our Terms of Service

Empty rooms are sorted to the bottom.

With 'Create room' everyone can create as many public or private rooms as they want.
The member rooms don't represent the current admin's taste.

So far the system works quite well to sort itself out.
As long a room is used by the community it stays open.

ChiFight (6) 7 hours ago

Overall it looks and operates very nicely. Thanks. I also really enjoy the ability to open up other chatrooms about specific topics.

My one request would be to have a way to mute specific chatters in the room, like the previous chats without officially blocking them on the main site as well. Often times I find there are people whom I know I am never going to meet or have an interest in chatting with, who seem to constantly be in the room fishing for attention or babbling about topics that I (and many others) aren't interested in, seemingly attempting to dominate or interject in every conversation. (or pushing politics, pointless arguments, trolly comments, etc.)

I often have the chat open while doing others things, not paying 100% attention to it and It was nice to be able to mute their messages from appearing, so that it would be easier to notice new or interesting commenters, but they haven't actually done anything to require or necessitate a full "block".

I think this would help streamline people's experience, seeing the messages they actually want to see, and help avoid people getting in pointless arguments and ruining the experience for others. I don't see a negative to this option.

Thank you for your time.
