in reply to A new chatterbox flavour

I've been using this for a little bit now and I like it a lot. It'd be really nice if PM hosted it so I wouldn't have to log in every time... has there been made any attempt to get this on the site yet?

    It's wildly incomplete still. Before I propose to host it onsite it will at least have to support private messages, translate PM markup, and work in Internet Explorer. There are also some encoding related buggettes in there that I need to weed out. It's a matter of appropriately shaped tuits, and right now unfortunately I have other more pressing things to do.

    Makeshifts last the longest.

      Translating PM markup and filtering user HTML should be done before the data enters the XML ticker (optionally, of course). Why create yet another pseudo-PerlMonks filtering routine that isn't quite the same and will just fall out of sync like the rest have?

      - tye        

        Sure, if that was available, I'd gladly use it. But what are my options as a client author right now?

        Unless you are suggesting that I patch the ticker…

        Has this happened, or would I need to see about it?

        Update: ah, demerphq says <q>its pending further efforts</q>.

        Edited by planetscape - corrected spelling of demerphq's name

      demerphq added the link resolution to the tickers awhile back.
