    Default Built-in forum chat

    Well seeing as alot of people are online all the time, why not mod a bit and put a built in chat to the forums? it would save alot of spam and people can converse with the chat instead of with the forums

    i would use it alot to have convos with specific people instead of PMing them all the time.

    Yeah a shoutbox will be nice.. Though I think many will still use the forum to increase their post counts.

    A shoutbox would be good to speak with users one on one if need be or still use the PM system.But shout box would be a quick answer.
    Speaking to member one on one in a post is against the rules.

    I personally wouldnt like a shout box but more of a realtime chat to be honest with you.

    actually theres a plugin for VB that is for a chat, no java scripting i think,
    actually one-on-one member post chat is not against the rules...
    ive done it quite a few times with members and no moderator or anyone had said that its against the rules.. and also ive seen other people do it as well.

    A shoutbox could be a spamfest. But I wouldn't care. I'd use it.

    The Shout(spam)box shouldn't add to your post count and you should only be able to make one shout/30 sec or more. Thus preventing spammers.

    Yes it does not say anything about a shout box, I think it would be a good idea to have an integrated chat system, they have them that work very well if they auto update every time you refresh or automatically once every 5 seconds. I think it would be really fun to have. It would make one on one conversations easier, you could ask questions in there and responses would be faster. I shall bring this idea up with the staff.
