Have you ever thought of adding a Shoutbox to the forum?

Its a box where messages show up in real time. Kind of like a little chat room in a widget thing. It does leave open the fact that those things are kind of hard to moderate though.

What CrabbyTabby said.. ;). Just a little box usually at the top of the forum where members can just do real time chat.

I think the subject has come up before but as Crabby said, it would be hard to moderate.

They aren't too bad. Maybe pending on how often a admin or mod is around. My hubby and I run a forum with Shoutbox and it's not so bad. But if a forum can go days without a mod on it then probably nt a good idea.

We have one on TFK, no one uses it.
I can imagine a lot more of us will use it.
If TFK has one, I'm sure Admin wouldn't mind letting us have one?

Edit: it's more of a chat room, I think that's what it's called, but it's real time too.

Considering how rude to each other some people have been on threads lately, I'd probably choose to avoid such a feature in case of crapstorms.
