Well theire is a perfectly good chat section in this thread. So why would we need a IRC channel? But it could be fun to talk to DAD realtime <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />


Not in the mood for cheese?

I mean I had been chatting with Morbo for more than three hours now.
It is much more relaxing and less straining to bounce back and forth posts rather than real time chat.
I have a very long experience with chat rooms where you really donít know who is replying who on what or what is being said to who. Veterans may be able to handle it but Newbies would hardly fathom the noise from the crowd.
OTOH, a one on one chat would be less interesting for the collective interests of the fans.
One answer to one question could answer the same question asked many times by searching for keywords, which is not available on closed chats.
Does this clarify what I meant or is it as clear as mud as usual? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />

I do understand what you mean DAD. I'm not really a very chatty person around people I don't know or don't know very well. I am sociable, but not chatty. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" />

Thank you Gia. This is exactly partly my point. We do have PM (Private messages) for those who wish to communicate more privately; then we do have the chatting threads at the bottom of the forum. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />

This allows all of us to share the knowledge being exposed on public chats.
That is why I did not see merit in closed real-time chats over private messages.

The way in which Larian Studios have constructed this Website is most friendly and ordered.
In fact, it is one of those fundamental reasons why this Website is so wonderful and friendly.
