YamahaForum Chat is an all-new way to interact with your YF Buddies in real time. Now, remember, you must be registered in order to take advantage of the Chat feature, so if you haven't already, now's the time! Anyway, let's go over a few of the features it offers:
- It works right out of the gate, with no software to install or plugins to add to your browser.
- It integrates directly into your vBulletin buddy list, so you have control over who can IM you and who can't.
- It has built-in status options - you can set yourself as "Online", "Away", "Invisible", or "Offline" at any point depending on whether or not you feel like chatting. You can even write your own custom status message to clarify your status.
- It understands if you're logged in or not, and will update your status automatically based on that information. As soon as our site reflects that you're online/offline, so will the chat.
- There are a few useful buttons on the left that allow quick access to common functions. Those buttons are completely customisable on our end, so we have the option of adding/removing buttons at any time.
- It follows you wherever you are on the site - if you are chatting with a few buddies and you decide you want to check out the Level Showcase, those chat windows will follow you so you can continue your conversation.
- It also follows you from tab-to-tab - if you like to have multiple YF windows/tabs open at once, it will update conversations across all tabs, allowing you to continue your conversation from wherever you are.
