    I think we should create a little thing on the side that is just a community instant messenger. Since there are already a ton of active visitors to this site, I would think all the talking would draw in more people who would like to express their opinion, just fuck around, or get help. It would stimulate the community more since there will always be a topic to respond to.

    Well there's already a ton of things. You can post a topic, you could throw something in the "status updates", or you can hop on mumble. Hell, you could even go in game

    Not quite. This is a false argument. (well I'm rarely on Facebook anymore but I think it has an IM chat thingy now?)

    But there would be no need for IM on this page, we already have a ton of communication tools/devices/whatever you want to call them. :thumbsup:

    Woah.

    We've done this in the past. Shoutboxes are a bit Spammy. We replaced it with Status Updates and the spam issue subsided.

    Thats what I was thinking. Any Shoutboxes I have ever seen in the past was almost 100% spam. And not the delicious kind. So I don't think a chatbox should be made honestly.

    Honestly, leave it where it is. Nothing better worth implementing that wont be abused anyways...

    Status updates are perfectly fine. No one will judge you on your latest life updates. . .

    It's called... Mumble.

    http://mumble.sourceforge.net/

    Not directly on the site, but essentially connects everyone from all the servers together. It works as a textchat room, and a voicechat room.
