Something for the site owners to consider later on, an instant chat window, not a chat room as i beleive most here arn't at that stage for community chatting , but a little window just to say hi and how are things in real time for the girls that can, and maybe those that want to, seems like the natrual progression !
. . . what do you think ?

It would be even better if the person who initiated the chat window could allow others to join it too. Like a selective chat room.

Great idea, my own thought would be a shout-box type add-on to the script.

I used to use this one when I was administrating gaming servers and forums - https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/mod/mchat_new_version/ . If I remember correctly then the admin can set the chat-box so that it is filtered with regard to content e.g. web-addresses etc

Good and bad really - bad is that it becomes less inclusive, so discussions happen in the little box, rather than as posts here. Good is that you can get to know people here better and interact quicker and easier, and maybe more naturally. PMing is similar but somehow more daunting

I guess that we need to remember the bad as well as the good and use the methods of communication appropriately.

(I did vote yes, however :) )
