    Live chat is too hard to moderate. It would be way too easy for people to spam or talk about things that are against the rules.
    I need R/Cers anonymous.

    cool idea but, what would be the point if only 20 people have 3k posts? Maybe mods but im sure if they need to skype they have a skype/teamspeak or something.

    true guess they could make it for 500 post or something, I know it will probably never happen just thought it be kinda cool, instead of waiting for someone to read a post and reply with one sentence. That way you could ask questions and get answers fast.

    No, we use the oldschool mindmeld.

    There are 116 members with 3000+ posts. Many are inactive, some are not allowed to return.

    It is in no way my decision and I probably would not even be consulted, but even so I'd like to believe that there would never be a chat section or window on my watch. I don't really need to read "'Sup" dozens of times each day. As for waiting for an answer, does it really take so long here? I'd rather ask a question and get a targeted answer an hour later than have to scroll through a few hundred off-topic posts to find the one that might be able to give an answer in one or two lines.

    No thank you.

    There is nothing wrong with differing opinions. Different people want different things. And I could be totally wrong about chat - maybe I just hit the wrong chat boards. This is a pretty big forum. What's the population - NOT NAME - of the biggest forum you know that has a good chat area?

    Not sure not been into very many ....guess it could be like a pm live chat where someone has a mod you want some info on and you could ask them if they got a second and send a request to open a live chat one on one about it and then close it instead of permanent chat forum so that way it wouldn't need monitored that would be alright and helpful I think

    Sup Marshal?!

    Chat-speak is absolutely MIND-NUMBING. It's worse than text-ese. And there's hardly any waiting time for responses here. About 2 dozen guys are always quick to answer. And if they don't know, you or JimmieNeutron swoop in to save the thread...

    About the only chat I've ever found useful is in my fantasy football league; it helps me insult the other team owners quite expeditiously. But there's only 10 of us...

    I agree Zippo it doesn't take long but sometimes its hard to understand exactly what they did for a mod that way it could be more one on one so it doesn't fill up a thread with off topic things I guess or if you see a mod in a thread on a vehicle in a thread about servos but you want to know bow they painted the body you could ask the owner they could deny the live pm of course etc...just a thought

    I do kind of like the idea of an instant message. Each user could configure his profile to accept them or not...

    I think so I know I've seen a few threads and I've done it myself where its about one thing but you see something you want to know about more and you ask but then thread goes off topic for few....I think it would be benificial and after all like you said you could deny it all together or just allow a certain few etc...
