    What about an instant messenger kind of thing? I know nothing about computer stuff so this could be a silly request but if it would be easy it could be a way to really easily communicate and for quick questions or comments it could be cool. Maybe kind of like the list of users currently on, you could have a list of users who are on chat. You could have group chats with themes to maybe host some kind of weekly discussion on certain topics or something like that. It could be like an online herp society meeting

    Even if the IM thing isn't feasible, scheduled event and/or threads could be a cool concept.

    There is a list on the home page of who is online. You can just private message a person who is online.

    Exactly as CentriRitanni said.

    Also I think instant messaging kind of defeats the purpose of a forum. When you ask a question or have a discussion on an IM it is private and doesn't allow other minds to get involve and share different views or knowledge. That is what is so great. It's not me and you talking, but me you and anyone everyone else in the world who wants to.

    There also was a chat room for many years. At one time it always had a handful of people in. The last couple years it was pretty inactive and I believe Rich removed it.

    The chatroom still exists and uses your login for HC. I just haven't updated it because no one ever uses it. lol

    It appears it only works for admins in its current state. I have added it to my list of things to do. My current project is getting the classifieds squared away alongside helping Sav take care of the new reptile shows section.
