Could be a good idea, I was wondering that the other day. It's easy to get into a private conversaion with another and then forget that others can read it as well.

I voted yes.

You can have one for the girls so talk about boys and makeup and stuff, and then one for boys to talk about video games and girls. So I vote yes. my forum needs it.

well , I think I vote yes too.
Cause like a lot of people in the same room and talk , and don't know who is talking to who , so some member will get bore. So they can change the Room if they want to.

I voted "No" seems unnecessary really. Like Caihlem said, that's what Private Messages are for.

Well , but some people like to chat , if they use PM , they have to wait , and I think they can't multiply PM.

for some server yahoo msgr, irc, msn or any other chat client is block in certain area. it is only my forum who's allowed to have a chat in my place, since i been working abroad and most of my members are oversease foreign workers they mostly want to talk with their family privately, without them spending to much on phonecalls. this chatboxs helps a lot if the request be granted. i know for some it is not necessary but for some ppl it is so impt. i hope they will make this a considerable request.



thanks

I vote no! It is really quite pointless and if you want a private chat box, you could just get a saybox or cbox and make it only visible to certain members. For example my forum has the built in chat box on the bottom and a private c-box, visible only by the staff.

I think its a good idea.

Sometimes there is a need for some to have a more private convo with more than one person, such as if someone is upset and a few friends want to support them, where they might not want the entire room to see. You can't do that in pm.

Also, I know some forums who have scheduled themed chats, that they hold in private chatrooms, so they are not interrupted by others who come in just to socialize.

I think it would be a great idea.

Yes there are portals you can link to however from what ive seen you are unable to keep the same formatting as your site.

I can use it as a Mod HQ where people whob are mods and admins can go to for a break and it can be on the nav toolbar for mods/admins only.

I put no. There's really not too much point. If you want it to be private, a seperate cbox won't help because people can still read everything even if they don't go into the chat. If you hide it from others, how will the person you want to talk to know to go in?

there is an easier way to do this:
why don't you guys just set up a outside chatbox like meebo.com
or any other outside shoutbox... add a pass so only selected members can enter....

duh
thats what i did on my site!

i vote no

I think it's quite a good idea, with the chatbox you can talk to a few people privately with PM you can't, you can only chat with 1 person.

I voted yes as i think that it would be great for when there is a lot of people in the chat box and i need to speak to just a mod about something saves me going and sending a pm to come back.

I also know a lot of people have added widgets. Which can be placed on the portal, index page, or within a forum topic. Which can then have the permissions changed to a particular group, which then would make it private. Only those that have been added to the group can go in.

Other people have created some IRC chats using irc clients such as mIRC or Pirch. And then provide the information and link to the chat room channels, in a private forum.

So there are many options to accomplish this, altho yes it would be nice to just have it all right here, working as part of forumotion.
