    Chat anyone

    What about a Chat room...
    always nice to chat with ppl in real time ...and would be a nice change of pace

    should make it that you need to post at least 10 post befor you can enter...that way it will weed out the spammers

    what ya think peeps ????

    There was a previous discussion about that here.

    The biggest problem with that is that there aren't archived records of chat, like with forum discussions. That means the content is lost and therefore is of no use to others that come along later.

    Members who are interested in chat could just add each other on an IM client such as Yahoo Messenger or similar... It supports both one on one chat as well as group chats, voice chat and video chat.

    Since you asked,-- Bad idea. It would just be a resource hog and headache for the moderators. Besides, there are plenty of places and ways on the web to chat already.

    I think that's a very good point. I don't know that I would be interested in it... never have been, but any benefit for donating members that is not an administrative nightmare for the mods would be a plus.
