A chat room would be cool.

Yeah I've thought of that in the past. I run them on a few of my other sites. One reason I thought against it was the fact it could possibly make the forum slightly weaker, as people would chat in the chat room rather than post on the forum. And obviously, people not online wont see what what said. But what we could do is open it at specific times, say once a week.

Anyway, I wouldn't mind hearing other people's thoughts are, and we'll go from there...

*added poll.

If it's opened once a week need to find a time that isn't just for people in one timezone...eg 7:00pm EST start time would mean only Eastern Staters, although if you want it to be an Eastern Staters chat room then that would be a good time.

I would prefer a permanently opened chat room regardless of time thus its not unfair to one timezone over the other.

Unless you want a chat service for the Eastern Staters Forumites only?

BST 7:00am WST 3:00pm EST 4:00pm CDST 5:30pm EDST 6:00pm NZDST 8:00pm on a Sunday would be the best bet, will enable people from all over the world to join in the chat even if they had to get up early in England.

Why don't people just have a giant msn gang bang instead? I'm regularly involved in trans-Tasman love fests with up to 15 participants and they are quite rewarding. And most of them aren't even on my list.

Also, does anyone know who Mr n00b is? :?

I say yes now, but from experience, my enthusiasm for chatting generally wanes after 8-10 days... Fads are a fad with me...
