    Yes we have a great IRC chat room which will use the jIRC broswer interface so you wont need to download any chat programs.

    I hope you will like it

    The chat will use both external clients (e.g. mIRC, pIRCh, and dIRC) and internal client(s) (e.g. jIRC), so you can use anything you want. There will be a clickable link on the 'chat' page for people who'd rather use clients, and it's in the format of:

    irc://server:port/channel

    It's very simple. Those of you who don't want to use clients can just enter the chat simply and easily.

    lol.....It's so everyone can be friendly and stuff I guess...and people don't see #### on every single page...seeing that isn't the nicest thing around....so with the filters up it stop people typing those words...ok it doesn't stop it...but it hides it...I dunno

    now that there is a 'chat room' this will effect the forums as people will discuss there oppinons in the 'chat room' instead of on the forums. The same thing happened on my site kinda thing. I had forums going really well everyone was usin them, then we all decided to go on irc one night and we've been on there ever since and the forums are now dead.

    It may be different with this site.

    the sad thing is, having under 200 members, and only about 25 who post regularly means not very many people will be in the chat to discuss such things. so the forums shouldn't die.

    To promote a friendly, helpful community, one needs to keep bad words and other derogatory statements at a minimum. If you've ever been anywhere where every second word is "f!@#", then you'll know what I'm talking about.
