What should I do next?

Just wanted to let yall know, am building a chat app with only replit db and other stuff, and I noticed that https://replit.com/@Idkwhttph/Mining-Simulator?v=1 This was getting popular, with over 160+ runs, and I thought people wanted to update it, I have not touched it for almost 2 months, what should I do?

  • Mining Simulator
  • Chat app
  • Both, would be quite unlikely and if I were to do this, I would probably lose tl3 because of inactivity in the forums.

But don’t lose your TL3.


I don’t think you can lose tl3 that easily


Mining sim with a chat.
Also making a chat app isn’t that hard, so don’t worry about inactivity.


Oh, by the way, I am going to implement something on the chat app that will print it out instantly, without iteration ( I feel like its too slow and will affect experience ).
And with this implementation, the message history limit can be higher, what should the limit be?

  • 1000
  • 2000
  • 5000
  • 10000
  • 25000

However, the higher the message limit, the slower the messages load ( but new implementation only needs to load once, not everytime you send a msg ). Atleast you don’t need to iterate through 1000 messages each time you send 1 message :rofl:

Update: The implementation is successful :skull: I thought I failed because it kept double printing msgs ( but then I realised its the keys. so i used key.split(":")[0]). :skull:

That may not be possible. I would have to pretty much redo the game.

Btw, how many messages are going to be deleted when it hits the limit?

  • All the messages
  • 100
  • 200
  • 250
  • 350
  • 500
  • 750
  • 1000

Good. I will be pausing for a bit to work on Mining Simulator. I have to wait for python660 to finish the proxy to actually launch this chat app. I have everything done for the chat app, add chats, load chats instantly, a server chat, etc.

I have decided to release the first version of the chat app. enjoy: https://replit.com/@Idkwhttph/Chat-with-your-friends?v=1
this is on beta for your info. And the proxy isn’t finished yet. So please be patient. I will continue updating this once the proxy is finished.
The first version includes

  • Storing up to 1000 messages
  • Messages will load faster than usual.
  • when messages are > 1000, it deletes the past 100 messages. ( Will be changed accordingly when the poll votes are finished. )
  • You can add friends to your chat.
  • You cannot delete friends from the chat ( will be here soon. )
  • Your messages are not safely stored. Again, this is because of the proxy.

You should delete the oldest message when it exceeds the limit. So if the messages exceed the limit by 2, remove the first 2 messages.
