Unhappy

Was just wondering, if this is a good Idea or not, please post in your views..
Am attaching an image below of how I think it can work while browsing thru the message boards.





The Applet will load only after the member signs in. And other fellow members already signed in can chat with each other, as well as browse thru the message boards, threads, etc..

What say? *

That's a very good idea. As most of the members maynot want to disclose their personal IDs on our site. And some maynot even have msn and other ids.

This is a great to meet all the active users on our site.

It's ok with me, as long as it doesn't slowdown the site too much.

Regards...

If you guys really want a chat applet, I will create a separate chat session on the team-bhp page....but eventually!

Well it'll be on a separate frame, so the site on the frame above will load as usual, and the applet will take about 30-40 seconds on normal Dial up connections.

And yes moderators, I mean Eventually as the site grows, it would be a good Idea.

Thats my opinion too....
When chatting a lot of info flys by and is not archived in a place for everyone to see. Its great fun to chat on msn occasionally, but if we integrated a chat window i feel that the posts would slow down, as welll as become less informative and interesting...

Nice idea & screenshot though!

Yes,

Indeed a very old thread.

Now we have a TBHP Suggestions Thread, for posts like this.

You will see that we have decided against a chat applet on TBHP, reasons provided in that thread.
(For eg. try getting on a MSN group chat with 5 or more BHPians and see how impossible it is to follow the conversation....now imagine that with 50 or 500 people!)
