    Idea for improving the site :)

    Was round at my cousins joint the other day, he was on some forum for his lancer and they actually had set up a chat system.

    Was really good because it gave you the opportunity to talk with people that were online and have some one on one conversations about whatever. May be a good way to chat to other members about their cars and ask questions.

    Just an idea, no idea whats involved in setting something like that up, but was great

    Hey Stef,

    Not quite sure what you are referring to? Link to the site?

    I believe he may be referring to something similar to the Facebook chat system? where you have a list of members logged into the site, and you can chat to them over a small instant messenger window/client?
    Correct me if I'm wrong please Stefan.

    Could be something like a shoutbox, where people just leave messages on an open chat basically.

    Facebook chat system could get annoying, especially if you're not in the mood to talk to anyone and just want to leisurely browse

    Shoutbox system ends up working horribly as everyone starts talking then people try scroll up and it fails and the whole thing fails.

    shoutbox = fail.

    Something like the FB chat system would be good. Compared to the spam thread, you could have one on one conversations with fellow members without having the whole community having access to it.

    And filling up your inbox constantly Also re. posting in spam thread, quicker and more convenient?
