Default A chat box.

sooooo people can chat.. Free up some of the message board by not having a million threads in the off topic and people can just ask/talk in there chat box... Easier for new members to meet other people. Honestly not alot of people greet people in the new member section. Just a thought.

I am not interested if you're going to be in it.

I would only participate if it was a video chat so folks could appreciate my facial reactions.

Heres a bit of a confusing response. This would be a great idea however you have to consider that this is what a message board is. Its a place for a specific community to chat about various topics.

The green part would eliminate need for an off topic forum, but again, with a chat feature youre pretty much telling everyone to leave the forums altogether.

Basically, go on IM

I think a chat box would be cool. I'm on a couple hunting/shooting forums and they have them, it's just to go in there and just ask a quick question to get a couple responses, or just chat about who only knows what.

Man I would imagine it would create 1836834 Callout threads though....

MEMBER X backed out of a deal
He agreed in chat and now doesn't want to trade.

Then this would be followed with the obligatory
WE NEED A TRADE MANAGER thread for the 9847th time.

This combined with the endless amount of butthurtness created in the chat and I only have i opinion.....

Let's do it

Wouldn't reduce clutter on the regular forum.

Wouldn't generate revenue for BO.

Would cause added stress on the server(s).

Great idea!
