don't most 'chat' threads usually get started because someone's thread gets hijacked? i think if we have a separate forum for chat threads places like IO and LS will lose some of their spontenaety and fun of it which is why i go to these forums anyway.

and if we have a chat forum, and someone's thread does get 'hijacked' in one of the other forums does this mean it will suddenly get moved to the chat forum or closed? half the fun is the spontenaety of this place and never knowing what will happen to a thread and sometimes seeing it take on a life of it's own.

i vote no on a chat forum. i think the off topic forums of LS and IO are enough. do we really need another off topic forum?

I don't like chats, I find them hard to keep up with, and by the time I answer something it's already old. I don't think I'd ever use it, but if some people want it, why not?

I feel the same way about IO, I don't like it, but if others do, go for it. But I've always felt IO was like a chat and the stuff done there could easily be done in chat to save server space. I can't believe all those nonsense threads are actually archived and saved, there's just too many. It seems like considering the quality of the content maybe delete everything over, say, 30 days old to save space?

However I couldn't resist making the Monty Python joke:

"Camelot, it is a silly place"

I've said it before... and I'll say it again... threads/posts archived are not taxing on the server. Storage space is not the issue at all to be worried about.

This should have been closed awhile ago, thanks for the reminder Chizwiz.
