I doubt you'll see a chat here anytime soon. I'm not a moderator, but I know they stay busy with just the forums. Add a live chat with the number of members we have here and it would be almost impossible to maintain at the level of Defensive Carry.
Good idea, but not workable with a forum this size.

Moved this thread to Forum feedback. I believe Bumper has already decided we are too big / our purpose is more informational . moderating such a feature would be a nightmare.

Someone made the suggestion a year or so ago, but I'm afraid that it would be impossible to manage. The few I have seen seem to have been pretty unruly and an opportunity for the spammers to push their wares, not to mention being a drain on forum bandwidth.

Although I would enjoy a live chat forum, I have to agree with Bumper. In no time at all there would problems with spammers as well as "bots" invading the chatroom. I used to go to the "Gun Cabinet" in yahoo, gave it up because of all the bots and spam. At the very least it would require a moderator in the room 24/7. Just the idea of scheduling moderators to cover is mind boggling.

That was my first thought. Your cost would what quadruple over night. No wonder you're red faced just thinking about it.

I agree on the yahoo front, as far as the rooms go. I chat with a few friends sometimes, a conference at most.
A friend started a room on pal talk, not weapon related, that's a pay site, was fine for a few months, but he tells me it had gotten out of hand, and has given that up. He is on a different server now, he likes it and I think it's free.

I was an admin on a vbulletin-based forum a few years ago. We tried chat a couple of times, but at that time, there were few options, and though I can't recall what we tried, I do recall that:
1) it didn't work very well (as compared to a 'real' chat client)
2) the novelty wore off quickly, and ultimately, nobody used the dang thing.
