Maybe too much of a pain: Show who's in chatroom

Maybe too much of a pain: Show who's in chatroom

It would be cool if next to the chat link a list of people is shown that are in the chatroom atm.
Now it is always a gamble regarding who's at the IRC channel - which is not very inviting...

Maybe its too hard and you should just forget about this...

Ooh ya that would be tricky. The chat is just a java applet. It would have to have the feature to show people in chat that way. Good idea though. :)

I've seen the feature working smoothly with flashchat (http://tufat.com/). Another benefit is that it will not require java, it runs quite fast and it has a nice interface. But... It cost 5 euro and it is not IRC compatible.

Maybe a separate IRC client running on the server, or a cron job, monitoring how many people are in the channel and putting the number somewhere for the front page to find? If the server allows running arbitrary software, that is.

Alternatively, an AJAX request to a separate page that connects with a PHP IRC client.
