Default Chat box

Would any one be opposed to say a live chat box to talk in real time? I think it would be a good thing for general chit chat and to liven the place up a bit. I could see the valid point of it taking away some threads but I think it will not make that much of a impact. Maybe we can get the thoughts from of our staff members.

they had one here once years ago. it was huge failure and caused more problems that it solved. it was proposed and offered up last year and wasn't even considered.

IOW's, it ain't happening here on this forum.

they got rid of it simply because it was too hard to modulate and things went south very quickly.

i belong to a couple of smaller forums that have live chat, but they are very small and usually one or two of the mods are online, so it's hard for them to get out of hand. this forum has over 50,000 members. they only have 6 or 7 mods to regulate that many people. imagine trying to regulate a live chat and it's problems with that many people!

There was a small chat group of some folks here that I was a part of, but the person who was running it let two "people" in who were thrown off of here prior, once they opened their mouths it was time for me to split. Chat rooms are a hassle to run. We had live chat on my Football site for about 5 mins.
