probably possible but at most other sites ive seen the chat rooms are rarely used. if we get a high demand for it we will certainly see about adding one

Chat rooms detract from the forum as the conversations that would take place in threads are being addressed in the chat room. also chat rooms require constant moderation as things can and usually do get out of hand. especially when open to guests. There also needs to be constraints and a well organized set of rules and guidelines in place.

In most of the chat rooms I have been involved, many of us ended up exchanging phone #s and conversing vocally. much more enjoyable than the endless typing that took 10x longer to say what you wanted.

Chat rooms are not safe environments and like airbourne stated need constant monitoring.
I don't believe activating a chat room would add very many positive benefits to the DHC site, if any at all.

X2 lots of little/young eyes here and it would be good to keep them.

on the other hand, when standard forum technology evolves to the point I am about to describe, the following might be an interesting and beneficial twist.

real time audio/video conferencing.

on this note we have our new forums in the works.. I had considered adding a chat box but have still yet to see an active chat room on any of the forums ive seen.. the most use i see them get are from those foreign cats trying to sell their shirts and pants..

What we are trying to add is a little more information down the right side of the forums.. examples would be moon phase, maybe setting it up to where you can see the weather in your local area, team dhc articles, top posters, sample pics from members that upload pics to their personal galleries, etc..
