Whats Your Thoughts on a Chat Room?
Brad and I have discussed adding a chat room in the past but we decided against it for several reasons. The main reason was that we couldn't find any chat software we liked that was reasonably priced. We also felt that adding a chat room may actually take away from the board because users would communicate more in the chat rooms than they would on the message board.
Since we have had several users suggest a chat room we decided to re-look the issue and actually found a chat software we like, its very similar to Yahoo chat, and it is at a reasonable price. What we would do is set up two chat rooms, one in the public area and one in the private area. Users will only be able to access the chat room as themselves and no guests would be able to enter.
So we need your thoughts and votes, we will keep this open for a while so everyone can give their opinion.
