Expressing moods in ChastiKey between lockee and keyholder
« on: November 23, 2017, 08:51:24 AM »
There are a number of reasons why I don't feel the programming language I built ChastiKey in is adequate enough to implement private messaging so until that improves I've been looking at other ways that you can send some form of feedback between each other about the lock without any typing. Obviously if you know each other in real life or know how to communicate with each other outside of ChastiKey then it's not a problem but for those that load and share locks with strangers it feels a little weird and cold. I've run a couple of locks for people and had no way of knowing how they were feeling and if they were liking the changes I was making so feel that this is definitely the next thing that needs to be worked on.

One idea I've come up with is to create a button that both users have access too where they can press it and choose from a number of emojis and the emoji they choose is seen by the other user.

I know that it won't be as good as private messaging but it might help a little until private messaging is introduced, and maybe once I get some more fields on the profile page in the app that will give you ways to communicate with each other outside of the app.

If you saw a screen of emojis like the one below do you think it has enough to express how both parties are feeling during the duration of the lock? These will only show on locks that are shared. How you both interpret each emoji is down to you.

I don't want it to feel a bit kiddified by introducing these but it needs something.

I think that would  be awesome, and highly effective. Words are always more descriptive however, I understand the difficulty in trying to code IM within chastikey. The emojis would give the key holder or chaste individual the ability to smile, cry, laugh etc after a lock has been modified.

If I got a smile emoji after increasing a lock, that would be a good indicator to add more. Where as a laughing emoji would mean "I want you to add so much time I never see my keys again"...... kidding.

Emojis would be an awesome start to in app communications.

If and when PM's are added to ChastiKey I can see how both could be kept and useful to individuals.

For example I wouldn't know how to start a conversation, or what to say with a stranger that's got me locked or I've got locked so just changing the mood might help people like me.

Not sure what I'd do if someone changed their mood to the cry emoji after I modified their locks by adding days or hours though >.<

I'm a sadistic guy, if they changed it crying... I would laugh... probably give them more time.. but let them out after the normal time.

A little sneak peek!

The first screen shows an extra button next to each shared lock where you can choose your mood.

The second screen shows the message that pops up when those buttons are pressed for you to choose your moode.

The third screen shows you what the keyholder would see. The mood you've chosen sits next to your username.

All I have to do now is reverse it by adding a button for the keyholder and then show their chosen emoji next to the "Locked by ..." text at the bottom of each lock.

Well good news it's all working fine on both sides from my limited testing so it'll be in the next version that will hopefully be released next week to get more people to test it.

I'm in the middle of adding something new to the app at the moment and want to see if I can get that finished in time.

I've released a new version for beta testing which should be available within the next hour or so.

Let me know if you find any problems with the emojis. I've tested them between two users. I wasn't really able to test it on a lock that had several users.

Please note that the app doesn't work like a chat app where once you send an emoji it's instantly shown on the other users device. They see the emoji when they next open the app or when they press the refresh button etc. You don't get notified when an emoji has been changed either. I figured that would be quite annoying after a while.

If the other user is using an older version you can update the emoji on your side but they won't see it.
