Is there a chatbox or the possibility to have one on the website ? Could be cool when you are at work and that kind of stuff :3

Joking aside, as an unsubscribed bastard I would like this a lot.

Wouldn't IRC be easier? We used to have a channel, and could set one up again.

1) The number of capsuleer women who are bisexual is greater than the number who are lesbian.
2) Most of the former group appear lesbian due to a lack of suitable male partners to go around.
3) The lack of suitable male partners can be summed up in most cases thusly: interested, worth the air they breathe, available; pick two.

IRC is little more than prettified telnet, and there are in-browser clients you can use.

if your office blocks IRC you probably shouldn't be using a chatbox on a forum either. :P

Eh it'd be easier to manage though wouldn't? Why separate when you can consolidate into Backstage? Then again I don't know what Backstage's backend code looks like so maybe it's too complicated but...meh.

Disabling guest posting would help resolve this potential issue if we considered abuse of a chatbox system to be on par with breaking any of the other rules on Backstage.

On the other hand, a nice thing about IRC is that if you set a channel to +m you have to explicitly grant individual users the ability to speak, which completely bypasses the issue of "register account, shitpost, lol".

Having a different policy, for something associated with Backstage, is a bit of a can of worms, no? or indeed, a stick to beat the Backstage staff with.

I don't see why we wouldn't treat the chatbox as just like posting on the forum normally, which was the point.

Only giving people who're registered users of the forum +v in a +m IRC channel (aka, allowing them to speak) is the same thing, in effect, as us not allowing guest posting on Backstage (we don't).
