    Question Chat Box Feature

    How come this site doesn't have a chat box?

    I think it would be cool to converse real time with other members.

    It's just not part of the forum software. We get along pretty well with the private messaging feature. If you notice a little green bubble after a member's name, that lets you know they're currently on line.

    We really don't like each other enough to want to talk in real time. That's why we are only forum friends. /sarcoff

    Because I, for one, spend too much time here already. I really like the forum, but I need to spend less time here to focus on what is important in my life and such a feature would work against that. I don't think I'm the only one here with that predicament. .

    To be honest, I spend too much time alone in the real world. But I gotta work to pay the bills and care for my kitties.

    However, I've met some really kind people here. And one of them is very special to me.

    Even though gasmitty explained why we can't have a chat box, I think it would still be great for socializing. But for more personal stuff, PMs and other forms of communication should be used, of course.

    Could be worse. I wish I could spend most of my time in the real world. Instead I'm spending my time in the city with city people.

    I'm a city person. Can't help it. That's where I live and work. But you'd like me.

    I'm sure I would. There are some good folk everywhere, just have to look harder here, kinda few and far between.

    I would propose that in this age with the modern conveniences we have that most of us would be called city people in some respect. The truth is, being a city person is an attitude rather than a geographic distinction. It is my thought that folks who are on this forum have already shown themselves to be country folk. Our values speak volumes.

    Most of the reasons have already been listed above.

    I will add my own thoughts though, which are that I have not seen chatboxes benefit a community.

    See guys? And you make fun of my Christmas cards... That'll show you!

    I kind of thought this whole forum was a chat box.

    Sometimes, catbox would be more appropriate.
