    Web-Chat

    Not that it's an issue as fast as folks reply around here, but have the gods given any consideration to a web-chat area?

    Re: Web-Chat

    Okay, so the idea has been blown to bits, and likely will be again, but perhaps the forum would give it consideration? for nothing else than to shoot the breeze, and increase communication between regulars, moderators, etc. Rule No. 1 of course, would have to be that if you have an issue, post it in the forum... and that can be clearly labelled on the chat-page itself... perhaps we can make it 'loggable' so that if two people are working out a matter, they can transfer a log of thier conversation to the appropriate forum?

    Just a thought! [img]/w3timages/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Re: Web-Chat

    Bandwidth... of course.. what do to about bandwidth...... hmmmmm....... [img]/w3timages/icons/thinks.gif[/img]

    i'm thinking along the lines of incorporating software.. such as netmeeting or MSN Instant Messenger.... Is there a way to pull post material from one of these programs? We can run a chat session in paralell to this software if there is...(this way you use Microsoft Corps' Bandwidth, not your own...)

    What about an IRC Echo of some sort.......... [img]/w3timages/icons/beep.gif[/img] I dunno... [img]/w3timages/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Re: Web-Chat

    I don't think chat is appropriate.

    This forum is good, not only for finding out answers, but for building a repository of knowledge.

    The nature of the forum means that answers can be thought out more; perhaps taken away, code tested and run; or searches take place in other sites.

    A chat room takes away much of that sort of strength.

    here's my [img]/w3timages/icons/2cents.gif[/img] anyway.

    You can add your ICQ account in your profiles, and we will see the online of off line flag on your postings.

    Not many people have added this to their profile. I do not use it, I want the information posted in the lounge not on a chat line.

    Re: Web-Chat

    Just exactly which part of "No!" did you not understand, the first time you asked? You're flogging a dead horse. There is absolutely no way there will ever be CHAT on any of my boards. [img]/w3timages/icons/hairy.gif[/img]

    I hope not. The last thing we need here is another AOL!

    A big part of the value of the forums is that the information does not go away quickly.

    Re: Web-Chat

    Agreed, my plan wouldn't effect the qualities of the forums as they stand now, but increase communication... *shrug* I'm not a president introducing a shoddy tax-plan, just a dude w/ an idea! (A clearly, DEAD idea, but nevertheless...)

    Thanks all! [img]/w3timages/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Re: Web-Chat

    Seriously Eileen, if bandwidth weren't an issue, and there were a means of querying chat-data for relavance, and posting to the forum automatically, that wouldn't be beneficial in any respect?

    I know it'll never happen, but humor me.. .[img]/w3timages/icons/smile.gif[/img]
