    nah, all the cool kids use Skype to chat it up

    We wouldn't need skype with this, though. It'd be far more efficient!

    Why would we want to chat while we chat? Kind of makes the forums obsolete.
    I vote no on this anyway, I hate chat functions in social sites. The facebook one is just maddening.

    While I do find chat functions on forums to be fun, I'm not sure it's quite right for this site as it is.

    It's a nice thought, though, so thanks for throwing the idea out there, Vark!

    I vote we try it out at least, and if it doesn't work get rid of it. This sounds cool!

    that's my vote as well. No harm can come of it, other than the fact that AH has to put it in.

    wait, the worst that can happen is we all love it so much, that it becomes permanent and we never use the rest of the forum, which I guess would be bad for the people who don't like the chat.
    so maybe there is a worst that can happen.

    Never underestimate the ability for a situation to get infinitely more worse than it was five minutes ago.

    So says Murphy's Law.

    ugggh can't Bandages do it?
    Or does it need to be installed? I haven't looked at the instructions yet.

    Oh right Bandages can do stuff to the forum, too.

    He once did it to my avatar.

    That was a fun night...

    I was a little annoyed, though.

    Yeah but if it has to be installed, that's all me.
    In which case we won't be testing it until I get back on my own computer. I don't trust my files on this craptop.
    Also: Still not excited about this idea. At all.

    We can always stop this and call it a day if worst comes to worst.

    I am bracing for the worst if we go through with this, however...

    For the record, I too hate facebook's chat, and that is one of the largest reasons I don't go on.

    If you hate facebook chat, how is this different?
    And can you link to a site using it now so I can see what it looks like? The site says the free version has ads in which case I veto this shit. I'm not have advertisments on these forums.

    Is that the same one? I don't see any ads on it.
  18. Triangle Man

    Triangle Man Cautiously Optimistic

    It's the same one. The Blatant Advertising was a reference to the fact that I'm also sort of plugging that site as the same time as I use it as an example of what a chatbox looks like.

    Sorry about that.

    And are you the SA on that site?

    oh lawd politics
    the one nerdy thing I cannot take part in even in the slightest.
    my friends bore me to tears when they get into politics discussion.
  20. Triangle Man

    Triangle Man Cautiously Optimistic

    ...I for one enjoy political discussion very much! I find it to be very interesting!

    ...But we should carry this to the main chat thread if we want to continue it. I don't want to send this thread any more off topic than it has to be...
