Multiple ChatBoxes

Post by Flight X Pilot93 on January 12th 2007, 5:05 pm

I Think, It would be a good idea to have it so you can put a chatbox in differnt topics. It's like I have a section for girls and a section for boys on my forum. And There could be a spot for everyone, one for girls, and one for boys. Or Have it so on ther forums, on for a topic and another for another topic.

This sounds like a bad idea, for many reasons:

  • As it is, the chatbox feature isn't used a lot
  • Having multiple chatboxes in small forums is a complete waste of editboards space and bandwidth
  • It would be too much to manage
I am completely against the idea. One ChatBox is enough.

It would be greatly appreciated to have the option of owning more than 1 chat room. I know of a few professional sites which currently use other services to host their chat rooms. (Holding more than 1 meeting in 1 chat room is not very professional.) It would be much more convenient for these sites' customer/public relations if users were able to log in once for both a forums board and chat room(s).

Having more than 1 chat room may also benefit forums of school classes and clubs. Chat rooms help greatly with students who wish to put together study groups, but live too far away from each other for the idea to be reasonable.

It is not a far-fetched proposal to charge a fee for those of us that wish for more chat rooms. As aforementioned, it takes up more space and bandwidth.

^^ Maybe it could be a point pay for each new chatbox (say 200 points???)

I dont really see the point of having more than one chat box. Our members use the chat box a lot for the reason of chatting with a group. We also have two modderated chat rooms linked with our site so there is plenty of space to go. Having more boxes would also be tiresom having to moderate them all. Perhaps a better idea is to set up your own main chat room area as we have?
