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.

Default Chat Rooms

I am always looking for a chat room for hunters. Most sites don't support them becasue they claim chat rooms are not used very enough. Well - I say used alot or not. It would be nice at times to have a hunter to talk to. Kinda like always haveing a Christian to talk to!

chat rooms eventually cheat the forum of material and occupancy. In my experience with chat rooms they end up taking away from the forum that created them. plus you really need to have full time mods or there could be problems. as a matter of fact, there where even issues with all those in place.
And there is nothing stopping someone from setting up an IRC chat room and posting a link.

I am active in another forum that has had as many as 786 people on at once. I see about 4 or 5 people listed as being in the chat room at any given time.

If you are concerned about kids getting in, that would mean someone would have to monitor 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for limited use.

I have to edit my posts about 4 times just to get them to make sense, I cannot fathom being in a chat room. However, I just celebrated the 41st anniversary of my 10th birthday so maybe I am just a crusty curmudgeon.
