    sorry, I'm going to play devils advocate here...........
    If AZ were to have a chat room, would the content and sense of community of the site dwindle?
    If people are having private discussions about GTG's, gear questions, and other such stuff, it may draw away from some of the great connections that this community thrives on.

    Not accusin, just sayin.

    +2. PASR tried a chatroom and nobody used it. The board approach keeps the convo broad and varied. PM allows folks to have direct and quasi-private contact, and a chatroom can easily devolve into pissing matches. A message board tends to make people think about what they are going to say, especially if emotions run high. It slows folks down before they say something idiotic or controversial. Not that AZ has any members prone to oral diarrhea.
    Silent.....but shredly.

    Once he figures out that his post count will go down with realtime chat, he'll be stuck between a rock and a hard place.

    I'm also concerned about the post counts of the board, collectively, going down. I've never ran a community website, so I'm not sure, but I'm assuming that Greg needs to show some sort of numbers to his advertisers. I would hate to see him lose money on this.
