Have you ever thought of adding a Live Chat function?

Not that I'd personally use it, but I've seen boards of this style that had that feature. Perhaps it would give people a chance that normally wouldn't talk to each other, have a chance to socialize.

I think that sometimes a lot of things get taken out of context or escalated due to miscommunications and such. It's not easy trying to decipher what someone means or what they ACTUALLY mean.

I understand that this is a GSD forum, but there would be no need for this if the intent wasn't communication. Of course I'm a nobody, but there's definitely a "lack luster" vibe that really has had a hard time passing in the last few months. Perhaps if there was a way for people to talk real time, maybe it would lessen a lot of the tension that seems to be mounting day by day.

Thoughts?

There is a function on the software that allows for live chat, and we tried it a few years ago - What a nightmare!!! People for some reason would be nastier than ever. It was impossible to moderate and people seemed to feel that the board rules didn't apply to live-chat, so it was disabled.

It is really sad that people tend to treat others so badly in chats and on boards when they would never (or rarely) treat people that same way in person. It would be fun to have a chat room or be able to allow just random discussions.

Yes to both statements here.

I don't expect all of us to be besties and singing songs together, but I think there should be a mutual respect between differing opinions and personalities. But hey what can ya do?
