It would help keep people from whoring threads.

A live chat would be totally awesome. It would only be cool if it were one, huge chatroom for the entire site though, not a bunch of different ones. It would be cool to talk to everyone on at the same time. I like the idea.

We do it AIM style once in a while. But eveyone in a chat would get hard to read....

Well there isn't that many people on GAGT at one time. maybe like 20 average or so.....and they wont all be on chat....you could still browse threads and stuff....

There was a chat room link here a while back and for some reason it disappeared :(

Maybe if enough of us make a request for this they'll bring it back. I used it quite often. It was nice because you could go to a GAGT room as well as a list of other room as with all kinda of people there.

Ah ok. Even if I was, I was probably a newb. I didn't really start here until September last year.

we had one, I logged into it a few times just to blow the dust off the room and shoo out the tumbleweeds.

No thoughts of trying it again until we get the server thing figured out I suppose?

its not a chat room....its just a "shoutbox" that is loaded with every different page that is open, so whether your in the AAG of the All Show catagries, you will be seeing the same thing and can still type and see what everybody is writing regardless of what part of the site they are on

you cant use it until you have signed in, but then you are free to use it whenever you want

Hey man, it's a good idea. I'd use it. It's something I would have if I designed a site.

chat = no as already stated. it is much easier for people to converse and get points across in a thread. Allows it to be "stored" and them to return at a later time to catch up on reading.

As far as a reply of "forums aren't meant for conversation"..well, unless it is an extremely Nazi web forum, I have yet to see one online worth a damn that doesn't have it.

Oh I know, and thanks. I support a lot of things, but I rarely express opinion around here.

wtf?? Did you not read what i JUST wrote three posts back? I did use it -- quite often -- and I know for a fact there were others here that used it sometimes as well because I had conversatins there several times. And like I said tiwas not just limited to a GAGT room.

I understand, and have accepted, that we will probabally not have a link to a chat room again from this site because there is not enough interest. But before you go and make such definative statements read what others are saying.

there is no link to a chatroom guys...there isn't even a chat room, its just a box that anybody can type into that would be located on every page under the home/gagt forum/g6 forum bar and on top of the first thread box being read

all live chat and you can type whenever you want
