internet relay chat

I mean i could make one,

unofficial hukd chatroom

but that would never get used
why not have an official one on the website?
#4
A few members have done this before not sure where it went but i do remember a lot of arguments were around at the time and they often spilled into the chat room it was all very unfair on the members who set it up. It may be different now there isn't so much nastiness about.

oh i see what you mean, seems like a good idea for people that like to chat a lot on here it would make it faster and stuff. you could put your idea in feedback maybe and see what other people & the mods think about it :thumbsup:

I think it should be moved to feedback. :thumbsup:

but for now i would love to hear what the people of misc have to say since they are the people who would primarily use such a service

Well I think it'd be a good idea but personally I use HUKD most of the time at work (shhhh don't tell anyone) and I wouldn't be able to get onto any chat rooms - I would otherwise.

Been Done At Least Twice And Dried Up

Been done before and if its going to happen again it would have to be completely seperate from the site as it would need to be properly administered/moderated and it isnt beneficial to the site to be honest.
Its bad enough having a forum wall with how some want to constantly argue, a chatroom would be chaotic.

HUKD definately needs a chat room, may be it will stop the numpties from using the FS forum as one.
#11
This used to be the chat room but no one used it .. still there if you want to use it

If it was done within the site i think it could work.
Im sure a lot more people would use it if there was a chat button at the top next to the topics/forums.

It would certainty give people a place to "debate". Also people could stop posting threads just to answer simple questions ie "what is quidco" "how do i add heat"

Done before, ended up with major fall outs, general unpleasantness, and people threatening to leave HUKD.
