    Would be pretty cool if we had a chat on the forum. Right above all the sections. Looks friendly for new users as well if they can see that people are actively talking in a chat.

    Mmm.. Can't you just make it members only with a certain amount of posts? So we can keep anons and such away? This may attract more members into joining.

    Well, I thought that the chat box might be distracting.

    I'm not unreasonable. If we can come up with a good reason why we might need one then I'll put her on a trial run.



    That depends chatbox plugin to chatbox plugin

    Distracting as in layout wise? You could always implement it so that there's only a link to it on the front page.

    As for a good reason, it might be nice to talk to others if we have a few people online ^^

    I'd absolutely love a chat. It would encourage socialization and help us get to know each other better

    I'm not a massive fan of chat boxes on forums simply because you have the forum to chat - what about an irc channel?

    IRC would require a separate tool entirely to function.

    I'm also rooting for IRC. You can embed a IRC chat into the forums. Kiwi IRC supports this. But another reason is because more technically inclined users can freely use their preferred IRC client to talk.

    A chat box would be really nice in my opinion.

    I really think It's better to contain the hype.. I vote against a chat box.

    I've never really understood the point for chat boxes on forums. Isn't a forum meant to talk to each other already, I don't see the need for it to be live.
