    We use skype at Anglo. Works like a charm - maybe a skype plug in for the website ?

    I think IRC is awesome. However it defeats the purpose of having a forum.

    Dean if you keen on trying let me know i'll point you in the right direction.

    We've done this a few times, I've installed 2 or 3 chatrooms previously, Storm did an IRC one I think, but they never took off and ended up being empty all the time, plus they chow resources if on our server, the IRC one would be ok though.

    Here's the one Storm did

    The discussion - Marine Aquariums of South Africa

    The actual chat program thingy - MASA Online Chat Channel - Its ALIVE! - Marine Aquariums of South Africa

    Like I said, they don't seem to take off very well on forums, better to just stick to making posts. :) But hey, if you guys wanna do something then by all means we can give it another go. :)

    Never saw the use on an open forum. I recall the members not really using it on most occasions, and those who did, talked a lot of crap
