Would you enjoy being able to chat live with one another?

I am not logged in long enough or frequently enough to use this.

No, it is not a feature I would be interested in at all.

Adding Chat Functionality to Forums?

Postby jennay » Tue Mar 30, 2010 3:37 am

dear person that manages/keeps up on the site,
i have seen it implemented in other forums, where off to the side in the margin of the page, or as a separate application, you can access a chat room area where people that are logged in can chat live with one another. i am not sure how many people are regularly signed on or if it would be something that others would enjoy, but i liked the idea of it. it seems like php, and perhaps javascript, is what was used for these forums. i am not sure on specific plug-ins or applications that could be used and incorporated to actually achieve my idea, but if someone thinks it is a good idea, i do not mind helping in the implementation and any extra maintenance it might create.

any thoughts?

I understand that firstly the forum does not support a chatroom and secondly over the years (and once recently) I have introduced chatrooms from external sites and they were seldom used- since we are from different time zones, people are rarely in there at the same time.
