Chatbox?




Is anyone interested in having a chatbox on the forum? I had it activated in the early weeks after I first started this site, but deactivated it. I won't go into why I did that, but a member asked me about it and I thought I would turn it back on for awhile to see if anyone finds it useful. Maybe set up times to do reviews for each others' writing.

For the newer members that came on later, it's at the bottom of the home page. All creative writing review group posting guidelines apply while using the chatbox of course.

Garmar.

I think that feature needs a "critical mass" of membership before it becomes feasible. I tried to use it once but I didn't seem to be online at the same time as most other people.

I'm in the same boat. I think the most members ever on during my visit was two. It would be nice to be able to chat with those two, of course, but I don't know that it would really be worth your trouble at this stage.

I had another idea I thought I would run past you guys.

I've been thinking about making a guest book in the site info area of the forum. To give guests a brief description of what the site is about and a place for them to post comments and ask questions. I've seen it done on a few other sites I've visited recently and it seems to work well.

There are drawbacks to doing this of course. Their IP is logged, so anyone being abusive can be dealt with. I can always get rid of it if it proves to be too troublesome. I won't allow any part of this site to turn into a cesspool.

We may get some good ideas for site improvement that way. Some will most likely be irritating like a recent ex-member, but despite that he did have some usable ideas. Even a bad idea can be tweaked into something good sometimes.

Just some thoughts...what do you guys think? All ideas are welcome. PM me if you would rather keep it private.

I think that is a nice idea.
