    Has the idea of a live chat room ever been discussed??
    seems like it would be popular

      Yes, several times. 

      The forums were originally a place where Hubbers (people who are here primarily to write Hubs) could socialise occasionally.  Recently it seems there are people who join HP mainly to socialise and occasionally to write Hubs.  I'm not sure HP would want to encourage that, because they make their money from the Hubbers who write the Hubs, not the chatterboxes!

        Im sure too. They are here to do their job, no biggie. But does "chatting" in the forums hurt anything? just wondering...

    Might be fun - I'll bet it could get pretty heated though.

    true, they would probably need several different "rooms"

    There are already tons of sites and services that offer live chat.  How would it be beneficial to HubPages to "reinvent the wheel?"

      just noticed that people start out on one subject, but end up socializing   
      seems that lots of new friends are made

      theres gmail and yahoo..
      if you wanna chat with somebody, email them? then go to a chatting place. The forums always end up as chats for a bit anyway. its so super ahrd to stay on topic, I do try tho.  smile

    But couldn't people who want to chat just exchange info and do that?

    its been brought up a lot, a couple of hubbers have already created public chats the addresses can be found in the threads

    personally, I would run far away, the forums already serve as a big distraction, a chat would be terrible.

    Do people really still use chat rooms? I figured facebook and twitter were the new chat-

        You suck because you have to pose in all of your pictures trying to look like you should be on a bottle of captain or something.

    we all anyway use the forums for chatting ... kinda desperate, I know...but I wonder if giving us an open chat room would be such a good idea! we won't ever get anything else done..  besides, the religious might just tear each other to bits! wink

    On second thoughts, maybe a live chat room wouldn't be such a bad idea.  Then we'd get rid of mindless threads like this one...
