    Hello Sam,

    We find that it really doesn't get used that much or is abused, uses way to many resources, and that we prefer people to post in the forums instead.

    We do a visitor message and private message feature for anything that members would prefer not to post in the forum though.

    Yep, we're a forum not a chat room.

    Nope. All help needs to be posted in the forum areas so that it may be able to help others with the same issue since that's the whole point of this site.

    I agree with Shawn, we don't need a chat box, we have the Chillout sub forum for all things not related to needing help so why would we need anything else. The whole purpose of the forum is to be open and help each other and for people to be able to find answers to questions they may have with their problems.

    It wouldn't be much good if they couldn't find anything because it was all hidden away, that would make me think that something fishy was going on.
