    It's 1.32 am here and there are about 12 registered members online. So I reckon a chat room would work nicely here. Have you considered installing one?

    I think that's because we're all reloading the Exclusive Member popcorn-fest thread :)

    But more generally, a chat room might be good.

    There used to be one but I think it was a bit cpu heavy when it got busy.

    Perhaps a 3rd party chatroom like Parachat would do the trick. Since they're remotely hosted service providers, it would have zero impact on the main forum hosting.

    Revisiting this,

    Flashchat works very nicely indeed and since this forum gets 20 members online regularly now, and it only takes 5 mins to install...

    You can see Flashchat working at Gambling.co.uk Forum

    well, ... why not, eh?

    Flashchat is very light on bandwidth, but really does eat CPU time.
    It is very good, I use it, but only on my own servers.

    Flashchat shouldn't pose any problem at all... you just have to make sure you upload all the files in the correct mode.

    I've been messing round with some irc scripts recently, would be happy to host something if it will be used. Here's an example I just set up, come in and say hello :)
