Yeah, I know is sad that there is a decrease in activity. I'm probably part of it, but I guess it's kinda normal that sometimes real life 'things' take over(school, work, etc..). We just have to create another 'invasion' :P :P

Well here is an idea that I know would help me stay on here longer and perhaps contribute more (I myself have been less active lately). How about adding a chatting system? Like on facebook almost. I know sometimes the IRC gets hecktic with two dualing conversations and sometimes pms are too slow. I have noticed an increase in 'group' projects and I am sure direct quick connection to a single member would help them communicate easier and also keep members on the site for longer periods of time resulting in possibly more activity!

Let me know if I didnt word the above correctly, but would this work? Its just an idea.

I'd add onto saintrunners idea that maybe it should have a possibility for both group conversations and single user.
I currently don't do much, but I am a developer for a game you should totally try out called AssaultCube Reloaded download here https://assaultcuber.codeplex.com/

You can kind of do this in Omnom by using /pm (or is it /msg ?  I can never remember :P)
It's not saved anywhere, tho.

But being able to open a message box on the bottom right corner like facebook, that stays open till closed, would allow conversations to flow as the member explores the site :)

Idk, maybe OmnomIRC full view in a separate tab?  Or just use a real Irc client :P

To do what you're saying there would probably have to be some sort of heavy-duty SMF mod, and one that doesn't slow stuff down too much.

You could setup the OmnomIRC block to be position: absolute.

Ummm....not sure what you are saying.....a chat box won't slow anything down....facebook does it fine. All it is PM's go straight there, so instead of having to check your inbox, while you are logged on, it just pops up in a bar on the bottom of the screen that says 'soandso sent you a message'. then you click on it and it pops up a bit so you can read an reply to it quickly. like Facebook.

This feature has been available in OmnomIRC for over a year actually. You type /query Nickname, which opens a new channel tab, where you can talk to the person in question.

It just used to be buggy. Now it has been fixed recently. I guess it would be a good idea if Netham45 eventually added extra notifications so you know you got a message, though (although usually the tab will turn red).

Of course a small box like facebook at the bottom of the screen could be nice, though, or an option to set OmnomIRC to be located there (although that might look weird with many channels ).

In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

(Btw the future of TI-Nspire debate has been split to http://ourl.ca/15791 it seems, so I guess it should be discussed there now while keeping this thread about activity.)

Hm, ironically this thread became pretty active. We need more of those threads!

Hmm yes though the mass activity was due to such long and constructive posts. Never knew of such a topic that started such involved discussion!
Hopefully this'll help in the overall increase in website activity.

Of course eventually that activity also needs to be transfered towards Nspire dev and maybe more PRIZM stuff. So far 83+ dev seems fine, though, although more of it would not hurt. :)

I know I've suggested this before but maybe some more computer dev. I know this is primarily a calc site but computers would reach lots of people and could generate lots of activity

We have a computer section actually ???  (even split by language and even a projects section) ???

But yeah before quitting I thought about adding some computer coders in the CoT team, but I don't know the plans for managers about that. I guess anyone who is willing to join the team is free to apply on their own, though. (they just gotta share what they're working on and ensure they can maintain a small minimum activity level). I often see some cool PC projects in that section. http://www.omnimaga.org/index.php?board=81.0
