    A chat room was tried many moons ago. Wasn't very popular.

    This way seems to work well since replies are saved, and then easy to search, for all current members, and all members who join in the future.

    I know the chat room that was done in the past made it hard to search for topics since they weren't saved. It also was hard for the admin to keep an eye on it. I like being able to search old discussions here. Like for example I have a plucking ekkie, rather than reasking all the basic plucking questions I can research what others have already posted :)

    Chatrooms have a tendency to get pretty crasty and it is almost impossible for the moderators to monitor them. We have a pretty good forum here comprised of friendly helpful people and anytime a thread or individual gets out of line the moderators can take care of it quickly.

    It isn't a chatroom, but in this thread you can post what ever you want.
    If you want to talk, post a funny pic, or something else. http://forums.avianavenue.com/index.php?threads/last-person-to-comment-wins.144649/
    But important bird related things it's better to post a new thread in right bird area.

    thats the only thing missing from this excellent site, when i had my forums i had a chatroom mod, no problems at all , also had a radio playing because people like to "live chat" so was something to listen to , requests always taken ;)

    Not to divert the thread, but, a quick aside...snazzy signature, John! Is it brand new? I've been away for quite some time, but, always loved reading your input on so many topics

    Yes but how big were your forums? I belong to Ravelry, a knitting and crocheting site, and at the moment, there are over 7 million members. There is a chat room but it is hardly ever used. I am wondering if a chat room would work because we have so many people who are on at so many different time zones that it would make chatting more difficult. And for me at least, I would think that Bella stories would get old fast.

    i dont think Chatrooms are so good...remember here are ppl from all the world...with diffrent time zones...for some ppl..like me..chatroom would feel lonely when im most active..:)

    ppl here answer fast when u post a thread...so no need for a chatroom..
