That would require the Admins to purchase or develop software to allow chat here on Camaro5.com There may be some shareware out there but again that takes some web development to make it work.

If Tran or Mark haven't seen this, I'll pass a message on to them.

It's a good idea, but I just use AIM for that. You can add your handle in your profile information, and everyone could just compile a buddy list on AIM.

Good point, but if you have used Gmail and the chat feature it totally ROCKS. I will add my AIM and YahooIM handles in my profile. Feel free to reach out to me everyone.

what about the people who don't have & never plan to have them AIM or Gmail thing-a-ma-bobs. i'd talk with y'all on here, but as for all the weirdos and perfectly normal people on the rest of the Interweb, i don't really care too much to chat.

I'm pretty sure there is a native functionality of this PHPBB for a chat window. At least I know I've seen it on more than one forum I've been involved with, and they function the same so I'm pretty sure it's inherent code with the forum.

Which is not to say it wouldn't still be a royal PITA...but I think it exists. Have we had this conversation before? I feel a bit of dejavu here.

Man, it's bad enough that I have a picture of each of you in my mind. I can't imagine actually putting a real face to the names.

Great idea, Having a chatroom here would be awsome, I would use it.An upgrade and something new and usefull (in my opinion) to camaro5.com has a truck full of members. why the hell not? Do it. And if you guys do it? when will it be up?

I think the actual instant messaging should be left to the IM type sites...AOL, AIM, etc.

I think that adding an instant messaging board would take away from the sites usefulness as an information board and tool. Too many people would be in an instant message "chat room" and many different topics would be brought up in one conversation. However, others might want to know and learn that same info....but, it would end up being all locked away in a chat room thread. I think that would take away from all the specific areas of the site and that wouldn't be too cool.

I think it should be kept seperate for those special times that are needed

We had a chat room over at GMInsideNews for quite some time...unfortunately, it got waaay out of control. Combined with the old, crappy server, it soon got taken down.

gmfullsize.com has a chat room, it's kinda fun sometimes, but the software isn't great. I'd say just start an AIM chat, or use IRC.

Here, I'll set it up real easy for everyone...no AIM or any kind of registration required:
http://ronanian.googlepages.com/irc.html
Just put your own username (or anything you want) in the "Nickname" field and enjoy.

Problem solved...though it's easy and free to register with those and you don't have to talk to anyone else.

while it would be nice, it would detract from the site. tho I have seen some forums with a "IM message board" on the main page, not really used as a full blow IM, but just for smaller conversations between close membes to save on inbox space.

ive got MSN, yahoo, AOL, AFCHAT, and a couple others.... add me if you wish... its all on my contact list

Won't be anyone in there unless you share some info about how to get there.

Link is safe. I don't do any RickRolling, despite my name being Rick. The link is just to a page that logs you in to web-based IRC client and is configured for EFNET channel #Camaro5.

I wouldn't even know how to work an IM thingy anymore...it's been light years since I touched one. They are such resource hogs and annoying as hell.

I refuse to use any IM service's program. I use Pidgin, which is far less offensive and lets me use one program for a bunch of IM services.
