    Default Online chat ......

    would it be a good idea to have online chat where you can speak directly to anybody who is online over certain issues that you dont want to post..... I.E . a bit like facebook where you can also appear offline if you wish......

    Hi Steve

    Having online chat would be a great feature, however last time I looked into it, there was a major reason for not adding that has slipped my mind. I will look into it again and see if I can figure out what the problem was.

    Best Regards

    Sorry Steve I had forgotten about this thread!

    I looked into it on one of the admin forums that I use.

    The problems are as follows

    1. They use a lot of bandwith
    2. They are mostly flashed based which can cause havoc
    3. Lots of forums have reported a massive decrease in new threads and posts when they have been added.

    Thanks

    and to add to Admin's comments -

    chat rooms are normally moderated, which is another job for someone.
