    AO Chat Room

    I was thinking, since this is in a lot of other forums I've seen, it'd be cool if we had a chat room.

    This way, AO members can interact directly anytime.


    Thanks to _gwenibe_ for this awesome sig!

    Search for related topics next time, i dont think we can go any deeper into
    chat topics that what we've already discussed in other threads. please search them and satisfy your curiosity

    chat room?

    This apparently was discussed in AO's earlier days under old management(before when i joined)
    Here's a quote from Gallcomp and Eriadd and even Cybergig

    Cybergig:"make that 8 times now and every one of them sucked. Noone went to them and at most I saw 7 people one at one time and they were all staff members minus a couple. It just doesn't work people. Those who come to a forum like that format, if they wanted to be on a chat room they'd go to that from the start. Its just how it is so honestly I hope noone mentions this again. But it always comes up once every few months anyways"
    Gallcomp: "8 times.. Well I guess I lost the count as I tought they where 7 only... As for the starter, it may sound as a good idea but in real life chatrooms don't work, there is never people on xcept for the first couple days..."
    Eriadd: "Yeah, it always sounds like a good idea to begin with, but then it starts to suck. Again."
    This shows, even in the "glory days" chat rooms, just flat out DO NOT work out.

    (at the bottom are 'similar' threads., read them) i will not close, just in case a mod has something more to add.

    Yes Sasurai is right. The idea may sound good but the reality is not, I have been aboard for longer than most members and I can assure you Chatrooms dont work on this type of communities. To have a decent chatroom you need several members active at one single time, and face reality we are lucky to pass the average 30-40 users at teh same time on the forums and this forums are a lot more attractive than any chatroom.

    So what are your chances of getting more than 5 people constantly, none.

    While a chat room for this community might not work, it doesn't mean that an anime themed chat room won't work on its own.

    Me and my friend (Who has written a fairly solid Perl script for a chat room similar to Outpost10F (Linked in my Sig)) have been batting around this idea for ages, and just needed the webspace to do our work in.

    That sounds really good.

    I've seen forums with usually only 5-10 people at a time with an active chat room.

    That maybe because they were all very active...but IDK


    Thanks to _gwenibe_ for this awesome sig!
