I think it'd be a great idea as long as its moderated and the mod do have a hard enough job already

The General Chat forum, the Open Chat thread, and the PM system seem to be enough to 'chat' with. In addition to that you have the option to display your email addresses and instant messenger addresses in your profile and next to each of your posts.

I did offer to set up an IRC chat room for TRF and TRC. I PMed Justin about it and he said that it would be just too much work to moderate and would take intrest out of the forums (which I would think it would be slightly better seening as it would take some strain off the server).

If any of the admins change their minds and would like me to set up an IRC chatroom (aswell as the Java appalet to connect to), please feel free to drop me a PM :D

Yea another forum I visit has a chat as well. People don't really use it because they like the forums the most. But we schedule a time to meet up in the chat just to have a nice conversation usually at night so it's a fun addition. :) It doesn't take away from their forums at all.

It would be a nice addition to the forums if we did have a Chat section but, We've got the Open Chat Thread ;)

Scion, we can't have a search because of the strain on the server, how the hell would games go up again

AND it will probably be even more HARDER work for mods and admins and MORE strain on the server

There is about 15 of them and over 19,000 of us!

I wouldn't be so worried about the load on the server as I would be stumbling into a discussion about something nasty.

Well I think if we did have a chat room, it can only be one which a Mod or Admin can open. Then the ADMIN/MOD moderates it and then stops the chat room when the mod is done moderating it :)

We have General Chat, The Open Chat Thread (:D and Lara Lover :D) plus the MSN Messenger symbols I don't think its at all necessary.

Come on people! Like Jacob said, what else do you need?
This is a forum about TR. Besides that there's a general chat forum and particularly a general chat thread! Other than that take it to pms.

What will you people ask next? To start dating each other?

If this forum doeasn't work for you I believe there are plenty chat rooms to get what you want.

I don't think so. Nothing wrong with a chatroom, after all, how slow are PM's compared to instant messaging?

My friends Doctor Who website has a chatroom and we all meet up in there on saturday evenings after DW. Its great!

10-05-06, 18:08
I honestly don't know how the DW website works but I think in this forum this is not the issue.
There are thousands of members all around the world.
Don't you think it's practically impossible to arrange meetings every now and then.
Is there sth you can't do around here?
If the problem is speed why don't you give your number to those you want and call each other. There's nothing faster than that!!!!!

Agreeing with scion05, that'd be wicked :D

Imo these forums are a tad too crowded which makes being involved almost like a dayjob :D. A chat thingie would be good, as it's just a 1) get in 2) chat 3) be involved kind of thing, whenver you want. And, IRC rocks Java stuff :P Can always have an online IRC client on the site.
My two cents... :)
