    I like forums myself. What about you all?

    I suggest the addition of a chatroom, which I've said many times before.

      Chat rooms are extremely difficult to moderate.  Somebody would have to be paid to sit there 24/7 and make sure, in real time, that no HubPages rules violations occurred.  I'm sure you can understand how impractical that is.

        You could apply for government stimulus funds to pay someone.  I think some governors have sent money back to Washington.

    I think the addition of chatting will again increase the number of spammers.

    Forum is great -- short and to the point.  Chat rooms?  Leave it for the social spaces.  I'm here to write and read.....

    If there were chat rooms the forums would be less in use and that would not be good.

    And since we have hubbers from all over the world, it would be hard to coordinate.

    They're also not searchable, the way forums are.  Any wisdom, help, or tips that are shared are quickly lost forever.
