Live chat room?

I'm not too sure if I've mentioned this before.
Could Accyweb do with a live chat room?
Some place members can natter live to others members without filling up threads with general chit chat.
A place to chat about any old nonsense from what type of birds visit your garden to a place where you can vent your issues after a afternoon up Stanley or in the local

Would it work? Has it been tried and failed?

I think it would be a good addition and I'm keen to know what others think about this also.

Fair play, I can respect that,it doesn't stop me thinking it would be a good idea

Is there no free chat function that could be added? And moderated by a select few members?

Or am I just being stupid?

Re: Live chat room?

there was one years ago and it was quite busy for a while but as members dropped off the site the less the chat room got used

if i recall its peak time was between 10pm - 3am lol

I too remember that too it was a security risk to the site.

You could set up a chatroom off site and integrate it into a page here using html embedding or whatever... aint sure if you can do that with tinychat.com but with that site you can have a load of webcams in one room for the chat... if thats what you're into

Fair play,if it puts the security of the site at risk,it's probably best we don't have one.
I wasn't after going in a private room and going on cam to see who got the biggest lens ...I just thought it might be a good addition so folk could have a little chit chat in real time.

Re: Live chat room?

It was a reasonable idea, but a non-starter cos of the history,which yeh obviously wasn't aware of.

It doesn't really put the security of the site at risk anymore than other add ons to the site like the gallery etc. The problem was that a vulnerability was found in the chat room add on. It caused the site problems and I think an alternative paid for chat room was added for a while but removed when it needed to be paid for again. The bit about paying might not be accurate but the cost and lack of use caused it to be taken down in the end.
