Anyone remember the pigeon mail mod that was done for LoGD? Remember who did it?

I was considering trying to create a new version of it from the idea. I can't think of any real issues that maybe caused by using it, does anyone have any comments about it? Just kind of wondering if people might be interested in using a similar module?

Yeah it was a sourceforge file...But I can't remember who posted it =/

Maybe Kendaer can shed some light on this...If they didn't delete the old forum it maybe even still there. I still have a copy of it but it doesn't have anyones info.

Sorry, I'm clueless in this regard and don't have time to go searching through the old sourceforge site.. yes the stuff there still exists but it's locked away.

Np,
 Just figured you might have known off the top of your head whos project it was.
Thanks anyway

For those who don't know the pigeon mail module was pretty much just an area you could go into and chat. What it did was connect to a remote database and drop information into commentary for that area.
So for an example:
If sixf00t4 and I wanted to allow users this ability...

User comes into the module --> Speaks into commentary --> Every 5 minutes commentary would dump from my post office area into his and his back to mine.

Which in turn allowed cross-server chat.

I would love to see that re-released.

There is already an rss news feed module in the core, might be able to adapt it into what you would want.  Might be worth a look.

After much consideration I've decided to start this project. I plan to do it as a feed but maybe just in text form or something...

Gonna let it grab from a host page that you'd be able to point the mod at...So you could link to another server that you want..

Make it grab the info much like the lotgd.net registration grabs the site list and dump it into commentary. I think the simplest way is to set it on a timeframe of once every 2 hours and make it flush the table and re-add commentary from the past 2 hours.

My biggest issue is I want it to be a long time frame because I do not want a real-time chat...This can be accomplished in more than one way and really I'd rather this to be an RP style post office...

If someone would help me test this once I have a working copy in order please just IM me and let me know.

Thanks,
Arune
