Default Chatroom?

Posting on the forums is great and so is PM'ing, but having a conversation with someone using the PM function is a pain in the ass.

A chatroom is not a bad idea. Anyone else interested?

the main page has a shout box, that's kinda like a chat room. But sure.

I think the shoutbox came about, if I remember correctly, because of a discussion about a chatroom. Probalby shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

I've seen 'em before but it's usually just a place for people to act like shits because they can't get away with it on the boards. Or there's like a bazillion active members so it's just HI, Hello, how ya doin, all day. Ours is better. Plus it's nice and prominent up top instead of a little streaming thing off to the side.

I think a lot of people want the chatroom for privacy. I can understand that since everyone who looks at the forum can see the shoutbox. But can't you just do instant messaging? I mean, I've never actually done it so I don't know

I agree ours is much better and most chatrooms are a place for people to act like a jackass, but I think with the people on this site it would not get to that point. Lots of good people here.

Yeah, some people probably would be jackasses with a chatroom, you can be a jackass on the shoutbox too, but with some mods it might work. Shoutbox is cool, but sometimes I feel like I'm talking to myself.

Its just a suggestion....nothing more
