Default How about a chat room?

I have seen some other forums using a chat room called Chatango.

You can link it to your page and have live chat on the forum. Its good to talk about anything on there. Its also good to have a casual conversation without having to go to PM's.

Chatango - Add Free Live Chat to any Webpage

Not this thread again.

It's been discussed a few times. XD And the answer is always no.

Chatango would also not really be an option because anybody can access it.. from the main site.

But yeah, it's been vigorously discussed and the answer is no, the forum is for posting on and having a chat room would require too much moderating and would mean people would probably post less on the forum.
Also, things which were discussed, such as a hamsters illness for example, all the answers would vanish which would mean it wouldn't be there to help somebody in the future

Yes we have fully discussed this Keflan but it was decided it was not in the best interests of the forum. Don't worry as you did not know as you are a newcomer.

Would it be possible to have a Sticky in this part of the forum regarding chat rooms and that we won't be getting one for the foreseeable future due to the potential problems it would cause etc?

This would end confusion on where the HC Admin and Mods stand on the issue and ensure that new members know that there isn't any point suggesting it as it's been thoroughly discussed and decided against.
