Default chat box??

ok idk if this has been suggested but..well i just came to this site from my other car enthusiast haunt(www.gmscf.com) and well i noticed that this site doesn't have a chat box,well on the above mentioned site, we have a chat box and its a cool feature were we all just talk about whatever and people can ask questions in real time and its cool
so maybe you mods could look into putting a chat box on here.ik itd be cool to actually talk to some of you in real time

We had a chat room at one point in time. Suffice to say that it did not last. Bad things came about.

It's too hard to monitor on a constant basis. One idea that might work is to setup scheduled chats. I've been on a few forums that had a scheduled chat every sunday at say 8pm EST. The only issue with that was the lack of turn out, but then again the member base on that forum was a lot less then this one.

I think what 97Bravada is talking about is a chat "box" not "room". Two different things. A "box" appears at the top of the main forum page. Some sites call it a shout out box.

Do`t know if vBulletin has that as an option.

Yeah...it's still the fact that it can't be monitored 24/7, so it will just cause problems.

yeah,my other site that im on is ALOT more relaxed on the monitoring,we can say pretty much anything we want in the threads/chat-box and curse words aren't blanked out in posts,the mods only get involved if it gets too out of hand or it gets too off topic/too personal..now ik you guys dont run your site like that and i respect that,hell i notice a lot less conflicts on here between members than there,so maybe you guys have the right idea idk.Anyway,thanx for at least looking at my idea
