it has been my observation over the pass decade or so that forum chats are useful but, eventually end up hurting the forums themselves.. you cannot come on and catch up on stuff yacked about in a chatroom afterall but, you can always come on and see things yacked about on forum itself and participate in that yacking even if hours old..
yeah i am kinda being a skeptic of the chatroom.. things are already slower here and i would just hate to see it come to a complete stop because chating is mostly gonna be done in a chatroom instead of on the forum for everyone to see..
other than that concern, i think setting up a weekly permanent AM and a PM chat time would be fun..
That’s a very valid point, the way I imagined it was that people would have that chat window open just to mess around, and the more permanent topics/knowledge base would still be located on the forum.
Anyone else think it might hurt things? We can always just try it out and disable it if the community doesn’t like it! This is your house just as much as mine!
