    As implied, this thread is about the feasibility of adding a chatbox/shoutbox to our forum.

    I've seen a few other forums with small chatroom-esque boxes near the bottom where registered users can post instant messages. I'm not sure how well this would work or how possible it is to even do (I'm not familiar with the coding for this particular site...), but I was wondering if it would be a worthwhile idea to pursue.

    Thoughts?

    My apologies, never saw either of those for some reason. Feel free to delete / move this thread then.

    I agree and could become too personal.

    I would love one however when someones in a bad mood it leads to hurtful things being said and eventually just cause more drama than needed.
