do you think having the option for people to use private chat is a good idea (remember - 'the option')

well I think it's a good idea. I've been wanting to try and get a chatbox into a private area for a while. My forum's for a game alliance, and we have higher ranked members and lower ranked ones, so we try to keep some things private from the lower ranked people. Since we have 4 or 5 people that are the "higher ranked players" it's nice to be able to chat with them privately instead of posting in a private area, or sending PM's to each other which is a real mess when it's more then 2 people, or hoping that nobody else is logged on and you just chat in the public then.

Would it be possible in any way to put somewhere else? Or is that not possible? Because it would be cool if you could work it like flash games and just copy it into a topic...but I don't think it works like that lol.

I think it would be cool though, when you make a forum, one of the options is "Chatbox" where you can either click it to have a chatbox there, or not click it if you don't want it. Idk, but I'd love it if it was possible, I've been wanting something like this since I started my forum (somewhere in the middle of march '08 ).

WHat about immature content being passed around? Would the mods/admins have rights to do such a thing? Not sure, but I vote "No"

The chatbox you have at the top of a page should be naturally public, but then you could choose another topic or type of room to talk in. This way if you have a group who likes to talk privately they can ask the owner to make a pw room in the chatbox, so that group just has to click something that might say "Choose A Chatroom" then they select one they like, have something pop up that says "Insert Pw" and then your in. That would be easier.

If you go on chatango I think I seen an option where you can make your own private chat box where you can only talk to one person. (www.chatango.com) See if you can find it...

Caihlem is right,there can be members breaking the rules while talking in the chatbox,and since it's private,they moderators can see the messages.

I voted no.

lol thats why you come up with ideas to prevent it, you could have certain people be able to view all of the chatrooms, or you could only have rooms that an admin works, this way you dont have too many rooms. See i just solved those problems. And also with pms those are like emails when you cant talk to someone because their offline

Voted yes... not all chats are of a social nature... my chat often gets used to walk people through techniques and procedures of a complex nature. Having multiple threads going at once often leads to confusion, especially when the discussion gets heavy. It would be nice to have the ability to open up a private discourse with someone who requries specific instruction for their sake and that of the other chatters (who might only be there for a social chat). Sure... other places can do it... and sure there is PM... these are poor subsitutes for immediate feedback without needing to wait for a reply in your inbox and they don't integrate with your forummotion memberlist. You can still keep a transcript of chats and you can still have a 'report abuse' function. The PM function will still be used because it is for issues and questions of a less urgent nature.

well private messages are for your and the other persons eyes only,
but chatbox is way quicker,better and you can have multiple conversations with other people discussing what you want?
i think the chatbox is a great idea, and should be kept.
and btw i voted `yes`
hope ive helped

pm's are slow, and your inbox can fill up VERY quickly.

Also, it would be useful when you're trying to talk quickly to someone but you don't want to talk in the chatbox where other users can read everything.

I voted yes, and you should too :3
