Yeah, I've been wanting one of those. I still don't know how the hell to work IRC, but I can manage.

I say yes to one. How about everyone else?

i think in IRC on the site would be a really good idea. Yankidank.com is another gaming site that has an IRC on it and it works really well, check it out

Let me think about it. It's more of a question of technology than "doing it". I would like to try to put a chat room into the site rather than just yet another link opening a brand new batch of windows. But let me look into some good technology solutions/if you guys have any ideas for a good web-based chat program.

Yeah, I just figured we could use one since the forum has a small percentage of chatting posts going on.
So I take it by your words that you don't want to use something like IRC, but rather something you can kind of embed into the site (likely Java)?

If true, that is good, because IRC drives me insane.

RealChat is always good, but it is expensive and you probably don't want to spend thatm uch money. There is also flash chat which is $5 though.

You should be able to find a free or very cheap java or flash based chat room,

I found this java one here Steve if you want to check it out!

I think IRC would work really well, but then again I love IRC. If you want an embedded chat client thing, then that's fine as well, but it also opens up a bunch of problems that IRC doesn't have. Then again, you can't police IRC as well, so... it's a tradeoff.

Hey Steve, I hope you haven't forgot about this. It would be a nice way to just chat with other mambers. Hope you can figure out a way to implement it.

This is my 800th post!!!

Why not just go to an AIM chat room? I'll go to GamingSteve right now. It's not very 'official', but I don't think there's too much of a demand at the moment.

Can't you also use YIM? Another forum I go to has linked to a java chat SFF.Net but no one goes there anymore, everyone chats on their own with MSN/YIM or AOL.

Yeah, YIM also has the chat room feature, but most people AIM so I mentioned that first. I've got all of them so I don't care.

say, what ever happened to this idea? It seemed to die out somehow...A chat would be a cool edition to the site.
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

Or everybody could go down to the Gaming Steve Tournaments thread and form a KOL clan. Biased? Who, me?
