Is it possible to add a forum chat box?

Discussion in 'Site Feedback & Support' started by Josh Barton, Aug 16, 2011.

  1. What do people think of a chat box attached to the forum? it would give people who are bored and not doing much somewhere just to chat randomly, might even help clear up threads of stupid posts and silly questions. Though this is only a suggestion, not a demand, as i have no idea how feasible it actually is to actually put one of these things in, nor do i know if anyone actually wants one of those things on this site lol. And i hope to hell that there isnt already one on the site, cause then i will look like a complete goose ;)

    The thing is it would probably add considerable load for the server this forum is hosted on.

    And anyway, the general chat subforum is designed for this :)
  3. Fair enough! I wasnt sure what it would do, but yeah if its going to do more harm than good then you can probably scrap that idea! lol
  4. Would be nice though, a lot of times I wish I could find people to race at a specific time. A live chatbox would let me find members who are racing at that instant, or are looking for other people to race with.
