    I've mentioned it before, but I'll mention it again because I think it would be a great addition to these forums. Doesn't have to be anything flashy as far as I'm concerned. Anyone else think this would be a good idea?

    There has been a chatbox before. They took it off when AM was updated/upgraded. I dont think it was being used often.

    I think a chat room would be a great improvement for this site. Allow you to meet people and get questions answered in real-time.

    See the issue with the previous chat box is that it was in your User CP. If they made a pop out window function (such as facebook) it would do good. or heck, if this site kinda had the little bar across the bottom for instant messages between members. Is this possible? I say lets do it!

    it is hard to moderate a live chat. and on another note it takes away from the added post on the board. I do like the chat boxes though
