FlashComs, a developer of flash based communications, has released Community Chat, a multi-room cross-platform Web chat application. Community Chat can be installed to any Web server both under UNIX/windows platform and does not require any additional software. The Chat can be integrated with a Web site user's database to import user login and personal details into chat. Apart from advanced text formatting, the Chat includes other user options: sound settings include volume control, mute option, different sounds choices for incoming, outgoing, private, and system messages. In addition to default rooms created by administrator, users can create their own rooms and invite chat users to join them. Community Chat users can block all incoming messages from un-welcome chatters. A user can be added or removed from a personal black list at any time. Chat availability status can be changed by clicking on one of the status icons.
Community Chat is fully integrated with Site Messenger and Video Communicator. Users can open private chat using Site Messenger or start real-time video communication with selected chatter. The chat supports GIF animated, Flash animated, as well as static smiles. The smiles library can be extended and is managed by chat administrator. Chat courtesy and behavior rules can be monitored and enforced by multiple moderators. Users can be banned from the chat or from one of the rooms, forever or for a certain time period. Moderator messages can be highlighted by means of preferred text formatting. Apart from monitoring users' databases and playing the role of moderator, the chat administrator can create public/private chat rooms, upload custom smiles libraries, sounds alerts, set user and empty room timeouts, and control room overflow. Multiple administrators are supported.
