Default Chat Box

Other forums I'm a member of have a flash chat box and they are quite popular and attract new members. These chat boxes I reckon could be enjoyable for the members and everyone can socialize a bit more.

However, a ventrilo server instead would be better.

we have discussed this before in the admin / moderator forum and we decided against it because it will cause people not to post threads instead ask there questions in the chatroom.

Hmmm I would thought it would be more like the Social Lounge and perhaps you should only let members with over 200 posts use it.

Having flash chat would present the same problem as the Facebook page/chat - People are asking their questions/posting their suggestions on there instead of adding to the forum's content.

Oh god...
That's why I'm against such things unless it's for staff discussion or VIP members.
