Hello!

The phpbb forum I host currently uses a pretty old Ajax chat and it's only a matter of time before its compatibility with the newer phpbb versions has reached its end. I recently discovered your cBB chat and it looks really good as an alternative!

Would it be possible to implement something to disable the hidden status (for everyone or for certain user groups)? Our forum has quite a few underage users and many of us would feel uncomfortable with hidden users in the chat.

This brings me to another suggestion: A shoutout / sound / message in the general chat room when someone joins or leaves the chat. This would help the mods moderating the chat a lot.

Thanks for your time!

Currently, the chat uses the same permission as the forum, that is, the users who can hide their status in the chat are the same as those who can do it in the forum as well.

It is a good idea. I will try to implement it in the next version.
