I like TkChat, but I guess I am not the only who would like to see some new entry and exit messages.
So after some experimenting, I can now use this the page to define the entry/exit messages displayed in tkchat. Very neat, if I may compliment myself. The users of the web interface will still be bored to tears with the old messages, but I will just have to throw a SEP Field over that one, for now.
For now, I have made it so you can store messages for different languages. This can also be used, of course, to create different classes of messages. Make sure that the entire blocks of messages remain <pre>formatted, otherwise the loader won't work!
Right now, the only place to get the TkChat that has this feature (and search and a fixed command history) is here: http://pascal.scheffers.net/software/tkchat.tcl.txt
I have added the following commands to tkchat:
Maybe RS can provide some nice messages using special character sets?
