    It's been suggested before and most have said they wouldn't use it.

    Why?

    Because usually chat rooms create meaningless banter. Yes, we get that in forums as well, but forums also allow people to ask questions and get answers and it's all searchable and available for others to find answers to their own questions.

    1. accofranco profile image76
      accofrancoposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      O i see!

      1. darkside profile image81
        darksideposted 8 years ago in reply to this

        Further on from that, and I've seen it happen on several forums that has had people partaking in chat on the side, it can be a very forced conversation. People feel the need to fill the 'dead air' with words, so they'll say anything to keep the atmosphere alive.

        Unlike a forum where a person can read and reread their reply before hitting submit, the 'quickly say it now' emotion of a chatroom will have people saying all manner of things. And people tend to be more aware that what is said on a forum stays there, whereas the general feeling with a chatroom is it disappears quickly. But while the chats aren't search friendly, they are kept in a log. And when discussions start to be about other people it can lead to quite an explosive situation.

        I'm not saying it will happen, but I've seen it happen often enough that I think it can happen too easily.

        Here's a few things that can happen and tend to go wrong very quickly:

        Asking people to vote up your pages.
        Asking people to vote down other pages. Or to report them.
        Asking people to bump a thread in the forum.

    It requires a download of just under 1/2 MB and registration to chat.

    The one I now have open was a good room at one time. No one did any of the thing Darkside mentioned. Mostly we helped one another out with advice on certain topics and such. Of course I am not syaing those things DS said won't happen because I cannot control what others do.

      SweetiePieposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      I have to agree with sirdent on that.  Shirley Anderson, ProCW, Squimpleton, and Nicole Winter all participated and were very nice people to talk to.  Honestly if you do not want to participate in a chat room that is one thing, but implying that those who like to chat would only do silly things is a little over the line.

      SweetiePieposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      The one sirdent had with us hubbers was really pleasant.  We were not on it 24/7, but for those who like to chat it was nice to get to know hubbers a little bit more.  Of course chatting is optional and no one can make you smile.

    I don't think a chat room would work here.  I use Yahoo, Skype and FaceBook for chat.  I simply invite friends.  No need for a chat room.

    Hubpages needs a chat room like my dog needs a chess set.

    How about using MSN, Google chat, or  something else that is specifically built for chat.

    The infrastructure needs of a large chatroom are non trivial. I'd rather hubpages concentrate on what it does best - provide a platform for writers.

    (although a religious chat room with Mr. Knowles and Misha as moderators is probably something I'd pay money to see lol )

      Ok Eric, now you're just being ridiculous. Everyone knows that dogs do not possess the mental acuity to play chess. Mine was barely able to learn checkers. Although he does play a mean game of poker!

      I went to SirDent's chatroom many times. It was a noble gesture on SirDent's part,but I always seemed to end up talking to myself. Kinda made me a little self conscious, ya know?

        Well B.T. at least you were having an intelligent conversation.
        And I want to play chess and checkers with yours and Eric's dogs' Please.
        I agree with JamaGenee and the other naysayers.
        My vote is "no chat room for Hubpages" cool

  22. Uninvited Writer profile image82
    Uninvited Writerposted 8 years ago

    The problem is that we are all in different time zones and countries. I visited the chat when Sir Dent was trying to get one going and I was always alone. Most people ended up visiting the chat room when no one else was there.

    SirDentposted 8 years ago

    I am not opening the chatroom anymore unless I get enough positive feedback about having one. When I had it open before I would always post that I was there when I went to it. Oh well, thats in the poast now.

    JamaGeneeposted 8 years ago

    Just throwing my 2 cents in. I wouldn't visit a chat room.  Forums work fine for me.  On a Friday or Saturday night, it can get so lively that some people can't keep up.  If a "good" chat room is for helping each other, how is that different from the forums already set up for that? 

    Chat rooms were a great idea back in the net's infancy, but now we have Facebook, Twitter, etc. that work much the same (better, actually).

  26. mayhmong profile image74
    mayhmongposted 8 years ago

    ...I had no idea this forum was generating this much replies?!
    We did successfully managed to chat with one another. The key is to make sure you invite the right type of hubber you want to chat with. Not some perve, standing by the sidelines watching and waiting to prowl on a certain hubber?!

        As others have said, HubPages has limited staff and there have always been other priorities for them to work on.   

        Since this thread was started, several Hubbers have tried setting up chat rooms for Hubbers and not one of them has survived.  That tells you something about the level of support for one!

    I like the idea of having a chat room here.  I, personally, do not have a problem waiting for answers to my questions or concerns but sometimes it's nice to get answers right away.  Great idea for a chat room.
