Sounds interesting but in my experience those rarely if ever get used. And this is a smaller forum, so it might apply even more...not only because less people would be on to use it, but because of possible costs associated with an extra feature?
Don't get me wrong, it could well work! But we should do a poll to see how many people would use it, and ask the moderators or whoever runs the site to check out costs.
Well, I know from running a proboards board that you can actually add one for free. I see what you mean by the lack of use, but if you are discussing somthing with someone via PM's wouldn't it be quicker to hop in chat?
The simple answer is yes, we could do it. Actually making it just like the MiA one, well... I don't know the exact coding to enter in to make it like that, otherwise it makes the chatroom really difficult to work with if I did it as it usually shows up by default. If enough people actually came on this forum at the same time (Being all around the world with different time zones certainly makes for a tough time trying to link that sort of thing up) But I'd definately be all for it if I knew how they did it, exactly.
Huge necro... But no sense making a new post. It is the suggestions box after all... But anyways and status on this? Probably got lost in the shuffle. In my experence on my home forum, there usually is quite a few people in chat. You can always count on two people there and sometimes I've seen up to 10! I think this would be a pretty cool idea. It is also good for silly questions like "help me, is this gun any good? Someone wants to trade." or something like that where there is no use taking forum and server space for.
Also, is there another way to get ahold of Liviona than just on here? There are some other pending things that never got done cause we couldn't set it up.
