Its been suggested before and I think a chatbox on this forum would lead to a lot of problems, namely that people would come in and advertise, spam, require a lot of moderation, ask support questions and it would just be quite messy overall.

I am therefore going to vote no.

Voting no. That would be opening up Pandora's box.

Voted no, not because the idea is terrible but because this is a support forum and it is hard enough probably for the staff manage already, you throw a chatbox in there forget about it... then people will just take their flame wars and whatever else there. This is just not a place for a chatbox.
Not a bad idea in general though,

I think if there was some way of opening up the chatbox for members with 'X' amount of posts then I could see the appeal because they're members who are likely to respect and know the rules but I don't think this is possible.

It would need to be a decent post count. Not 50 or 60 posts. Something like maybe 200 or 300 posts. I say high numbers like that because those are more active members and members who are really familiar with everything here.

I think that it's unnecessary for forum like this and it will just slow it down... Sorry, but voted no.
