    Now that we have a real server, how hard would it be to host a dedicated chat room? Obviously there is a lot to be done before we get there, but how realistic would that be?

    I too would like to see a dedicated chat room for the forum.

    I have some ideas about that, but I need to know what is compatible with phpbb forums. I have an IRC server program, but IRC is old and kinda out dated. Some suggestions would be nice from some of you more Tech savvy people out there? Any other options?

    I am not too sure on the PHP based chat, never used one. IRC works well Primal but do we each need to have the client installed to use it?

    Taurus357 created a new chat room last night to replace the one that we have been using. We've already updated the links in the Chat Room Sticky in the Lounge. It's an IRC based chat room, the only thing is how would we imbed something like that into the web space that we have with this new forum? I am sure that Jones can do it, or GlockMan as well, we just need the access.

    Don't see a need to invest so much time into a feature that few use as it is. I re did the chat room last night because it finally started to get enough users to warrant it, but think there is too much other junk to get done before takin on this project. Just my two cents.

    Honestly, more people would use it if it was an addition to the forum web space. I think that the fact being the old chat room was so unstable really turned some people off on it. This new one is great. It doesn't kick you out if you type a 300 word paragraph and try to post it. Something like that would be awesome for the forum as long as it was user friendly and you could bounce between the forum and the chat room without losing posts or having to re-login to each everytime you bounced back and forth.

    Once I have full up-load access I will try to get it done after a few other projects.
