  • Custom user commands (Can be used to set predefined messages/responses via command)
  • User settings
  • User status
  • User group permissions
  • User sanctions (Mute/Kick/Ban)
  • User image uploads
  • Style properties
  • Lots of admin options to enable/disable certain features
  • Bot notifications for new threads, new posts, new users, new Resource Manager resources, new Media Gallery albums/media/comments
  • Bot responses that can be trigger by predefined keywords

If possible NodeJS for avoiding perpetual requests/queries to server.

This doesn't make sense. Even if it were made in NodeJS (which may or may not be ideal), it would still require requests to a server - the Node application would just be acting as the server in this instance.

Ajax vs NodeJS, you can't imagine the gain in performances for a livechat system... Just try and you will see.
I mean, I know, the system only send a query if someone is chatting... That's a big dif...

I think you're misunderstanding what NodeJS is. It's a server-side language. A program written in NodeJS would be executed on a remote server - it may or may not be programmed to be a server, listening for requests etc. Ajax is a completely different system, provided by browsers via their JS engines...

I think what you're actually wanting is a websockets system, so rather than the chat system polling for new messages (I.E sending a request to the server every x seconds to check for new messages), new messages are pushed directly to each connected client.

Yes, that's what I want so sorry for the misunderstanding. :)
