I recommend a chat box if possible.

We have a chat box available to add on the forum here and we had it on while we were creating the forum so it works. Unfortunately I decided not to leave it on because in my experience with forums chat boxes are forum killers. People start playing on the chat boxes and ignore the substantive sections and discussions in the forum.
Couple that with the fact that inevitibly fights break out between members on the chat and it's hard to impossible to keep order there for the mods. People end up mad and disgusted and just generally bad feelings all the way around. Thats bad for the forum all the way around.

It takes a very special close group of friends to keep order and peace between themselves on a chat box.

That's true enough. I can see why it would be a pain.

Yeah, I like chat boxes actually, I thought seriously about leaving the one here but at this point with few members we decided against it. Nothing is set in stone though, it's still an option if the membership grows enough or extenuating circumstances allow for it. I don't know what those might be but with me a "no" isn't necissarily forever, lol.

The last time I added a chat box into a forum it killed it in 6 months and we had 1200 members. SO my experience with chat boxes, while they are enjoyable, isn't a good one with regards to the overall well-being of a forum.

They are fun though for the most part, I like being able to talk with my friends in real time rather than through time lapsed posts.

I simply thought of it as a faster way to pm. Like instant messaging. Also I though it would be good for question's with a chatbox they could be answered pretty much immediately. At this point though I don't really think we need one.

Thats a really good thought, the same thought I had when we started out actually. Actually we, the staff, have a hidden chat box that we use for that exact reason. It is annoying to have to wait for a reply post and especially so when you're trying to create a game.

Exactly. Also you want to get the game out as quick as possible so a chat box is useful that way. It's good that the staff have one, that way the can commune easily.
