As the title states, should we install a chat box on here?

If you would be so kind after you vote, provide feedback as to why yes or no.

I vote no only because I've seen it kill a forum. Everybody was always in the shout so posts went way down. So if you weren't on line all the time you miss 1/2 the conversation. My 2 cents

Hmmm...great point.....never had entertained one myself, so am now unsure if one would be appropriate...later evenings, bad day at work, alcohol induced comments.....does sound like maybe 2 steps backwards from our 1 step forward now...Hmmm....:unsure:..Lance

I voted yes because I think that they are harmless.A person can see that someone is on there and say hi,what they are up to for the day.Not everything can be posted, and a chat box in my opinion makes the forum more personal.
Not everyone cares for them,but at least the option is there if you would like to use it.....Cheers!

The votes are tied now with "yes" and "I dont care". Personally, I like the warm and fuzzy security of logging on and not having to respond to instant messaging when I'm tdtt :frantic:

Its not an instant messaging application.Its simply a chat box at the bottom of the page which your name does not appear unless you click on the box and write something.The only people that are involved are the ones that want to be in the chat box.

The shoutbox that I would install, will let you hide it...so for those who did not want to see what is in it should actually make it go away.

I can see the pros and cons of such a product.

Done, hope you all enjoy it :)

Please keep in mind the shout or chat box is just for small talk, please use the forum for questions.

If you think there is a better location for it, please let me know.
