The only thing that could make this website better would be a live chat feature (like in the Yahoo groups) ... erm, thats it.

Cheers

I did look at a live chat facility about 8-12 months ago. The main problem was is they use even more amounts of processing power and ram than a forum uses, which would mean it would have to be housed on a seperate server. You can utilise other off-site commercial chat apps but they don't really allow you to build them into your site.

Ideally we really wanted a system where once you're logged in once to the forum and people can see you're active in the forum we wanted to integrate a chat system into this, and unfortunately it's not possible to easily do this.

The main danger using a third party product like Bravenet or MSN is that everyone has to go to that site on mass to start chatting which although it will work, defeats the object a little.
