We Need a Chat Function on this Forum !!!
« on: 22 January 2014, 23:01 »
I really wish every section or at least every MK had it own chat function.

Like on Briskoda that have a chat box where you can just jump in and chat about stuff live.

Would love if they had a chat box in the MK6 section where you could just hang out....would it be hard to implement?

Thanks

No like a live chat, not posting a topic. Like MSN messenger

Many many years ago we did have exactly that. If he read what you actually asked for, even Len would remember.

It was a massive headache because it required so much moderating.

So feel free to use the off topic chat section but no live chat will be coming back.

Thanks for replying JV. Why would it need loads of moderating? A few simple rules ie dont be racist, sexist, insulting religion etc...

There has been so many time where i just want to ask a really simple question with out having to post, Still think it would be a great idea. It would also bring different people together ( as i only really speak to people in MK6 section)

Another test run maybe?...if it fails, right it off

Rules? What that people follow?! Who is going to then sit on the chat all day monitoring that?

If you are asking something car/gti related then why move it off to a place where no-one else can then later read and contribute?

Yes I do remember it but hardly used it. If at all.

And yes John I did understand what he was after I was just pointing out that Chat-Off Topic was all he would get!

I dont think it needs to be moderated that much. Would just like a place to chat about car in general on a night (VW rather than mooching about with the Skoda boys  :embarrassed:)

I think you underestimate how people behave online!

Collect up your friends on skype? Just post on the forum where all can join in?

The Skoda boys are a bit limp wristed hence why it worked for them.

I remember a time when the off topic was constantly banter. Its somewhat slowed down over the last 2-3 years.
