Default A chat or shout box

It would be cool to have a mini shout box or chat box while we are perusing the forums..so we can live chat with fellow Bonny lovers.

Chat rooms aren't an integrated feature I've seen an option for with vB. Or would want the expense of if it became available. We hosted one offsite when we were bonnevilleclub.com, and it'* use was all but nil . Not something I'm willing to go to the expense or work for again. But if somebody wants to give it a go. More power to them. Want random conversation? Start a Chat thread in the lounge, we are on a fast server. Won't be that much slower than flash based chat, and half as likely to crash. LOL. IM conference is also an option you could post up.

What it comes down to is this, we are a car forum. Adding a chat room tends to distract from that.

They are neat..but then instead of posting problems, people want instant answers in a chatbox. That leads to things not documenting in the forum and then when a bigger problem arises..it'* tougher to figure out etc.
