    Not right now. Things like shoutbox that properly integrate with the forums take a lot of resources.

    We don't have resources to spare at the moment. I plan to upgrade soon maybe after that.

    could use tinychat and do an embed. All traffic stays on their servers.

    which means all login and access is controlled there.


    That has some issues. Its better to have an integrated solution.

    problem with chat rooms is....

    1, the novilty will wear off quickly, so its wasted effort setting it up.
    2, people will tend to post more questions in there than in the main forum. so the actual post count in the forum will die out until the novilty wears off.
    3, folk will get fedup with sitting in there waiting for someone els to login and log out.

    there is more things against it than there are for it.
    a shout box is probably better but then again who logs in via main page? i have my details set to always logged in.

    with over 1000 active members, i think someone would always be in there. on 3sforums there was always someone on when just 50 members were active there. most of them are spending more time here now. either way is fine, just a suggestion. would be nice to see how it worked out

    chat is a GREAT idea, alan, pm me how much we'd need to get more bandwidth to allow it. i'd be willing to pay for that depending on cost.

    I agree, if all it will take is a little money to setup, then I would be happy to donate to this as well. If it an issue of time, and personel, then I guess we will just have to wait for the more important things with the forum to finish being straigtened out.

    Meebo offers a pretty well-designed chat room for sites like this. I use their online messenger to log in to everything (Facebook, AIM, etc.) and I never have a problem with it. They even support video chats. It'd be worthwhile to hit them up and see what this kind of thing would cost. It would still run on their servers instead of ours (which I know some are opposed to), but in the several years that I've been using Meebo, either via another site or their own, I've never had a breach of privacy or any negative encounters.
