    meh, the forum itself is like, heck, it IS a "live chatroom" per se. the cool part is, your "chat" gets recorded FOREVER! (until the next clean up that is). PM's another, more "instantaneous" way to communicate.. I really don't see the need for chatroom, care to elaborate ur necessity?

    I agree. A web-based room for the forum isn't such a bad idea. Especially for the non-IRC-literate folks around here. Plus, we wouldn't have the drama that seems to follow IRC about...
    Unless it's an IRC-based webchat.. Then i still think it's a good idea, makes it easy for those who are consistently on the forum but not in the IRC room to pop in and say hello (like me).

    And it gives them no excuse for not coming in the room once in a while.

    I would like to see a small javascript box on the main page, or at least a shoutbox.

    in front of my computer
    I suggested a Shoutbox a couple of months ago and KiVan said no, so I don't see much of a chance for this to happen.

    Shoutboxes are useless, whereas some sort of web based chat client, preferably a irc java chatroom, would be useful for those who use more then one computer, or dont like to use mirc.

    I agree for 50%...

    but a java based chatroom has potential to prevent worthless topics being opened.

    I mean topics like:

    mario land 3 - content: good game
    help me now - need pr0n

    etc.

    Hey there's a nice chat going on right now, one of the best and most clean I've seen in a long time in our channel.

    It's covering all consoles and games too, very nice.

    That doesn't answer anything. What is Bravenet exactly? And how does it work?
