when i added in guest support into babble, the only reason i did this was cause the IPS chat had this "feature", but the problems i've run into is this, babble treats each user connected as its own "object". this is fine for the logged in members, i have a basis to configure everything off of, but when it comes to guest i have to "build" this object, and it makes features like "whisper" "ban" "ignore" etc, really messy in the code. if i keep this feature in babble 3, it will be greatly diminished and they wont have the full range of abilities a logged in user will have. what do you all think?

yeah it is poorly worded isn't it? lol, should proof read before i impulsively post something (was going over babble code, marking stuff to keep/redo/remove in version 3 and came across the insanity that is guest in the code).

The ability for guests to see the chat that's going on, yes.

The ability for guests to actually chat, no.

i would keep this, as this is easy to do, but having them show up in the online list, being able to chat and basically extend all the features of babble to guest is the code is what i would like to remove in 3 as its "hacky", and really complicates the code imho.
