    Could we have a chat option for the main site similar to what already exists in the blitz microsite? For example, the ability to call someone who is currently on-line and have a dialog box open up that both people could use instead of having to PM back and forth (or run over to the microsite).

    This is a correspondence chess site not a chat room.
    There are plenty of places to 'chat' on line - I don't see the appeal of spending development time here to duplicate what already exists out there.

    I have a number of occaison where I'm "chatting back and forth" using PMs about chess or site issues. The situations that prompted the request are cases where I've answered one or two PMs, gotten up to do something else for a bit, and then come back to a message that says something like "Are you going to answer?"

    I've also had a number of nice chats with people in the blitz room.

    Although this is ostensibly a CC site, it would be useful to have a chat capability in some cases. I've had quite a few games which occurred, basically, in real time. Mostly 1-day time controls.

    Maybe make it sub-only to prevent people from abusing it via free accounts?

    This type of option might limit the ridiculousness in the general forum.

    That is a nice thought, but probably unlikely!
