    Re: The Chat Room

    Well spdude said it was staying in the last poll that was made about this due to the amount of activity it brought to the site. If it is removed/changed to an IRC the site traffic will decrease drastically and for spdude that = bad. Also from the aspect of noticing people and building relationships within the community it gives noobies a opportunity to be noticed and make friends much easier then they could by posting in other threads. I know it took me several hundred posts before most people knew I was alive...almost 800 and some still don't have a clue, Yet due to the chat threads more people notice you quicker then ever before. Having stated the benefits here lays the problem. IT KILLS THE REST OF THE SITE IMO. But we can't come in here and say nuke it when it is the biggest driver in the forum. You have to give the site a reason to kill it. START POSTING OUTSIDE OF THE DARN THING. Make the other areas where you spend your time and the chat area will die, then nuking it won't be a big deal because the activity is going on outside of that area. I think this is part of the reason the clans will be such a great thing cause it gives opportunity for clan leaders to bring activity back out of the darn chat area. Just my thoughts.

    Re: The Chat Room

    @Chief - that is what i am trying to do...and chating to people on MSN os helping more because i don't have to go to the chat room to talk to them.

    If we still kept the million..post forum then it won't go completely!

    It should definately stay. How else are we gonna talk to more than one person at once? There is no real chat room.

    A big thanks to Renn for the sig! THANK YOU!

    I like the chat room and most of the time we do talk about anime.

    Re: The Chat Room

    So it's true that the chat forum is overpopulated, but there are plenty of people who go there to talk. Though I myself almost never post there, I do sometimes now, it still brings a lot of ppl. to AO. You can't talk about anime 24/7. But a seporate section for it might be a good idea. And if you closed it than the million post forum would just get spammed.

    +=My Space=+ Thanks zeroenix for the sig and avi... wait that's me. +=zeroenix.net=+

    Re: The Chat Room

    Well, if it's become a problem and if you're up for suggestions, perhaps we could get a chatroom feature here? That way people could talk to each other at the same time and get their role-play fix out of their system and leave the Chatroom for stuff that doesn't fit in any other forum... or something like that ^^;
