Get a chat box
« on: March 14, 2012, 09:52:53 AM »
Anyone else like chat boxes? Chat boxes are great because you can just random chat in real time without cluttering up the board. I think it would be a good addition to the site as I random chat and banter more than have serious discussions.

This idea is taking in consideration.

It will likely result in a decrease in activity in lots of topics and makes the spam thread obsolete.

We could avoid this by making the chat thread open to only members with a certain amount of posts (100 perhaps), by this time they have already shown that they have an interest in the forum and are less likely to just leave the topics dead. OR we could just do what other forums do and open an IRC and keep it out of the forum and only give the link to certain members who are trust worthy~

Tests have shown it's a fucking bad idea.

Hrm... That would maybe result in post hunting by people who think they will be worthy?

Well maybe we just wouldn't tell them that they would get the chat after the 100 posts? If they don't know they they won't post hunt. It will just be a nice surprise.

The topic could easily be hidden from users viewing. And since this forum is still in infancy stage there will be more members to come. So the fact that you know is kind of redundant, since the idea will be more effective for the future users~

OT: SMF doesn't allow chatbox extensions?
