Default Forum policy regarding Chat Rooms

Forum Policy regarding Chat Rooms.

The topic regarding adding a 'Chat room' to the forum has been discussed on numerous occasions.
The forum owner, admin and the Moderation team feel that the addition of a chat room is not in the best interests of Hamster Central.
The main reasons are that information given on a chat room is lost as soon as a user logs off where as on a forum it is retained for future reference.
Chat rooms require some moderation to ensure there is no upset caused and the moderation team is not available 24 hrs a day to monitor a chat room.
There are many other medias available where people can 'chat' whilst remaining anonymous should they choose to to do so.

We request that members do not post threads asking for chat rooms in future and should a new member ask then please refer them to this statement.
Thank you.
