Put your comments about the new Indev Chat Filter here.

Can we elaborate on this filter to ignore specific people?
Can we make it static so we don't have to keep selecting it?

Actually the only change that i'd really like to see is being able to filter it down to just two or three people.

That would be nice... (from an ISA perspective) when taking chatsaves of stuff it would be nice to be able to cut it down to merely the dialogue between the ISA officer and the problematic individual,

Oh, and Dmitri and Osiris... you actually can select two or three people. Just hold CTRL while selecting the names, and there you go... :?

Basically i think what their referring to is the ability to "whisper" it would be just as easy to "mute" the trouble maker to the entire room, both features are comman in chats (i've built it like 20times myself in side-projects if u want a demo Iain just ask), as for the current feature, its a unique style with the little menu but the feature is nothing new tbh, glad to see its implemented though so now I can ignore i mean, filter out people.

Overall comments is that the feature is nice, will be interesting to see how its used by different people. Only comment would be to replace the image, definately looks out of place.

Also a idea, if you wanted to make it so u didnt need to re-select it, stick it in the top frame & make it pass it on as a variable with the main listen/speak buttons, that way you dont need to re-filter everytime you post or receive. And yes it works cos thats how i've done it.

As for making it perminant just create a small session file based on the users dossier number, everytime they filter they can select temperary or perminant, if they want perminant it drops their name into the created file and its brought up & stored in those variables everytime you login. It would be useful, especially if you made a control feature to block 1 person's posts globally, for example someone on BFL you'll just block everything (except their login so isa officers could remove them).

Very simple stuff once you get it functioning, kudos on getting it working in a chat that is wasnt originally planned for.

Just change that annoying image pls :P

I personnally am against the implementation of a whisper feature especially in OTF, people are banded into groups enough through Departments etc if it ended up that whispers were incorporated it would be what big conspiracy, after all a department is a conspiracy theory by definition.

Conspiracy, in common usage, is the act of working in secret to obtain some goal, usually understood with negative connotations. Etymologically, the term comes from Latin con- "with, together", and spirare "to breathe".

I agree with Iain and Eagle. We are here to chat. And not to talk to other people privately, or to block people. This is against OTF principles. If you want to talk in private, use your IMs.

Though I do understand the desire for blocking people at times. :k Damn cynism.

However, this is not how it works.

I give up quoting myself, since it seems to go ignored.

Good golly...

I'll try to keep this to points that haven't been addressed so that I don't end up repeating a number of well crafted responses.

Iain initially wanted to have the filter "remember" the last option "filtered" between refreshes of the chat, and indeed it's a trivial enough change to make. I was however against it because in my view it encourages over use of the feature for an intension that we'd rather avoid in our chat rooms.

Subtly anyone?

If the demand becomes great enough, and the argument against it lessens then this could be easily enough done. However this feature was intended as a means for helping you track down a comment made, or indeed a responce made to a questions that's dissapeared into the depths of the chat due to vapid activity (anniversary time allready?). It's not intended to make it easier for you to exclude other comments made in chat.

I like how he blames Iain. :)

And I agree 100%.  The filter is a tool, not a means to chat.

Is there anything we can't argue about? :D

Well done InDev, nice bit of coding there, and I can see that it'd come in handy (I can't say that it does because I haven't logged in since it was implemented) when trying to keep track of things in a busy chatroom. And for ISA purposes too, obviously.

Nice work, congratulations, well done! ;)

So, basically, this is for all those slow people who are getting old and can't keep up with lots of chatting going on in a room? :?

Good, then the next time there is like 15 people in chat, I'll be using it.

Note: The aforementioned comment in no way, shape, or form implies that -I- am old. Thanks.
