    Don't you think a chat room feature here would make a great addition to lawnsite? It's being done on other websites and the interface here is better than most, in my opinion.

    It really should be looked into. Maybe it already exists I just can't see it.

    Lawnsite used to have a chat room. It was an aol chat room so you needed AOL instant messenger to utilize it. I believe it was removed because there wasn't much activity in it anymore. However, I will move this thread to the support forum, to see what others have to say.

    I type too slow to enjoy a chat room. It took me about a half hour to type this.:drinkup:

    I have been thinking about this...problem in the past was anyone and everyone could access the room and often times things were so off the wall and arguments occurred and things got out of hand - no ones fault in particular - just not easy to be effective when a lot of people are trying to talk at once...was thinking of maybe having something...will address it soon on the forum

    You're right. No question your biggest problem will be too many posters using it. You've got like 30,000 members. How many people can actually "talk" at once before everything goes crazy?

    A chat room would be good but most turn into a Bun fight when so open. If members paid a little for a chat room membership then it might weed out the trash that often errupts.

    I'd love to see a positive Rep points system so a members value can be gauged by others.
