I'm guessing as someone said before somewhere, if we had a chat box then members would be less inclined to post in the forums.

This ^^

When we had it before it took away a lot of posting on the forums. Quick questions were just asked on there rather than on the forums which isn't really great from our point of view.

I agree it's a shame there isn't one any more; I posted recently suggesting one, but got told the same reason.

It'd only work if there were rules against posting questions in the chat which were more suited to a thread, but all that does is increase the need for moderation, so it's just not practical unfortunately.

imagine the spam some people who are known to have the answer would get. the thing would have to be restricted to friends only and then it's kinda pointless.

I think that's where I saw the reason why we shouldn't have it.

What about just using a thread just for generic chitchat for people that are just sitting on the forums for a while? Can anyone see something like that working?

Isn't that what General forum is for?

Off-Topic I mean.
