Default A Live Neko-Sentai Chatroom?

Just curious, this being a long-standing forum at this point, has consideration ever been given to creating a live chat room function for users to engage in? I know theres pros and cons to having these, but I don't see it truly being detrimental unless it causes technical issues such as forum errors or bandwidth concerns. Anyways, just wanted to plant the idea seed and see what grows~

/point @ Ragns
You'll have to ask him to add it to the site (like bg chat)

I'm all for the idea.

However, it won't be all sunshine and lollipops. With a chatroom comes the inevitable conflicts. Some people are going to want to ERP. Others won't want anything of it. You know, stuff like that. So I would suggest some basic ground rules.

Oh definitely Wenrick.

I'd think some subdivided rooms would probably prevent most confusion. A setup very similar to the forums boards should be a pretty good start, aka, General Discussion Room / Roleplaying(And/or ERP) Room / Video Game Discussion Room (Possibly DATs as its own subroom, though combining it with any and all Tech Help/Support could be a good move)

Definitely up to Ragns though, however. I'm pretty ignorant on what it takes to start/run such a function, and the upkeep it might require. I suppose we'd quickly run into such issuees like: anonymity or even the requirement of user accounts to participate, language filters etc.....

The one ragns runs on BG, is like an IRC chat window, you login with your forum name, and... you can idle there 24/7 (Like I do!)

you can hide chat from public view (bg has a "whos chatting now" box like thing showing recent chat). and chat log (24 hours)

Yeah Gulky, I've used a very similar one on another Forum site so I'm familiar with the IRC chat system and think it works quite well! I'd bne more than satisfied with something similar for NS use. :)

Oh boy.....webcams? I had totally forgotten about that lol. One step at a time ppl!

Interesting concept... sounds all fine and dandy, but I can see it going so wrong. Would be something that could be abused by those who would want to cause ruckus or utilized by those who wish to enjoy one another... which sounds sketchy already! Maybe have a limitation on there, similar to the posting guidelines so if a person weren't banned they couldn't make several fraudulent accounts on that same day to purposefully create llama del drama?

I have seen the chat logs, Gulky, you don't idle >.> I discussed this a little with Ragns, he demands more pasture lands as payment.

I idle alot! Also, if you send him pony pictures on those pastures, you'll more likely get the chat :P

And Ragns is completely silent. The chatroom doesn't have to be overly complex. Just copypasta the BG one in here and we'll be happy. We'll worry about multiple channels and webcams another day.

Oh, yeah, I guess my computer set up is sort of intimidating. I do have a lot of stuff.

Anyway, should be easy enough to implement an IRC into the forum, and have an IRC channel, shouldn't it?
