    No it wouldn't - it's bad enough with the likes of the happy thread.

    how is that different from the general forum?

    I would say yes to a chatroom if they remove that forum, lol, and the sports and spiritual and well all forums except for site ideas

    I think the mods here are busy enough as it is without the possibilty of misbehavior in a chat room.

    Chatrooms are awful things, they produce instant reactions and the speed of conversation means you can never write a long interesting post. Also, there's no reply & quote facility, so confusion abounds.

    Well, I'd see that as a reason for a chatroom. Then the happythreaders could become happychatters instead, and there would be less clutter in the General Forum.

    Do you have a time machine or something? There hasn't been chat at uChess for about 15 months. For the reason I stated before.

    I don't think I've been there in all that time, so my mistake, assumed it was still there.

    RHP already has a real time chat room... at www.uchess.com

    They closed it, cuz it's a very bad idea.

    well what a sad bunch of losers you are, i didnt say you have to use the chatroom, it would be nice to talk to people in real time about chess and other subjects of interest; if you dont like the idea - shut up and dont use it

    No need to make personal attacks.

    Just ask people here if they want to chat over MSN if you're that desperate to chat with folks.
