Live chat suggestion

Hey, i was wondering what everyone thought about a "live chat" on the AC forum. ive seen some other forums do this and it seems like a good way to have real time conversations about anting and ant keeping. i think the AC community may be big enough now to handle a little chat section. i also believe this would help thin out the smaller posts and conversations in the forum, that could just be discussed in a live chat real quick.
what is everyone's, including moderators thoughts on this?

I agree it would make everything simplified. It would even help the monitors from picking which form to send which post. It would also make it easier on them to find spammers and suspend/ terminate those bogus account.
If my solenopsis stings you with her gaster,it means she likes u :D

I was going to ask/suggest the same thing

We could do it with IRC with or without sanction

There are plenty of free irc servers like irc.freenode.com you get a client I use pidgin.im but others are available, join the server type '/join #AntsCanada' and voila all you need to do then is let us all know where it is. If the mods wanted to do this they could do some chanserv and nickserv stuff to keep control of it.

Im game, but it might be quiet given the amount of posts on the forum.

I would definitely use the live chat. I am on here constantly reading and learning all that I can and for the small questions like you mentioned would really cut down on space and make the Forum for just more information based discussions. I think it's a really good idea.
Keeping:
Camponotus castaneus
Camponotus subbarbatus
Camponotus pennsylvanicus x3
Crematogaster cerasi x2
Formica pallidefulva x3
Formica subsericea x3
Pheidole sp. x4
Tapinoma sessile
Tetramorium caspitum x2

I would absolutley LOVE a live chat, especially on this forum. You're right, it would greatly cut down the amount of smaller topics that may only ask a single, simple question that can easily be answered on a chat room. It would also bring this community together a whole lot more. I would definitely implement this! :D

I'd prefer an ant keeping journal section (seriously why doesn't this forum have one?) but a live chat wouldn't be bad either.
