Announcing The Return Of CE - Conference!

CEans,

I'm pleased to announce the return of CrazyEngineers 'Conference' - our real time interaction / chat system for all our members. Those who've been on CE for a long time now may remember that we had launched the CE Conference long time ago, but we had to disable it after it encountered issues and caused servers to go down during peak traffic periods.

But now, the Conference has returned and it's back in its full glory! Check out -

https://www.crazyengineers.com/chat/

The New CE Conference -
  1. Allows real time interaction among members.
  2. Keeps you updated about the latest happenings on the community (who's created new post / new reply etc.)
  3. Shows a Conference-Only announcement at the top of conference.
  4. Shows the real time information of all the members who are logged on to Chat
  5. Allows us to archive all our chatroom sessions in a discussion thread so that everyone can read / search all our previous discussions.
  6. Allows you to post styled messages.
  7. Shows message alerts in the browser tab
  8. ...and much more. Discover it yourself 😀

I am against it!

Being a CE lover and active CEans, I feel it must be removed.

a) Extra Server Load
b) No productive Traffic
c) Temporary messages ( Nothing indexes).
d) Chat in Skype/Gmail. Discuss in CE.

No revenue gain+ No intellectual property gain + No traffic gain==> Dump!

Rupam Das, the conference has been evolved. Let me explain -

1. No server load. The system can handle thousands of users without loading the server. The system uses file i/o - not great for security, but gives us speed and efficiency.

2. Agree. We might limit the conference to those with a minimum post count.

3. We'll archive all the discussions in a thread, automatically.

4. We wanted to avoid extra software to discussions amongst the CEans. Officially, we'll use the CE Conference for live blogs and event coverages. This is going to be really exciting.

😀
File I/O. Doesn't look good though! 😛

The shout box won't be there in the sidebar forever. It will have its own location. Once that happens we will decide on removing new threads and reply notifications. 😀
