This has been raised several times and usually gets a negative response.
HubPages is primarily a writing site, not a social networking site. There are plenty of chatrooms available for those who wish to use them.
i agree; i see no point in a chat. i can chat any time with anyone i want. well, if i want to, which i don't
cosette I couldnt agree with you more and I have to say I laughed out loud big time on this response.
So what are you all chatting about chatting for then if you don't want to chat?
All forums posts are chat really. I don't see the difference. Except we're supposed to follow a thread but people soon just get lost in personal chatting on all the forums. Maybe we should stick to the topics more.
I'm afraid if we had a chat it would over load the server
I'd rather have a pm system.
Well actually we did have a chatroom (not hosted by hubpages, but made by its members.)
I haven't been to it in a while, and now it doesn't exist because nobody'd come but...
Back when we had it, we'd talk about our hubs (layout, diversifying, free stock picture finding, affiliate programs, content review, promotion techniques, etc...).
The great thing about chat is that you don't have to wait for an answer (assuming someone's there). You just ask your question and it's answered. Wanna know if your hub comes off too strong and you need someone's opinion? Just ask. Need to know where to find a picture that matches your content? Just ask, someone's bound to find one.
Ah, those were the times.
Well, if nobody came, that kind of answers your question, doesn't it?
Well, it wasn't my question. I was answering.
Also, people did come for a while. It's just, since it was a hubber-made chatroom, a lot of people didn't know about it. But for a couple months we usually had like 4-7 people coming in everyday.
Then I took a vacation from hubpages, and when I came back I found out the chatroom was dead.
@Katelyn - We never had vulgar content.
Nah I find chat rooms without a specific purpose just lead to arguing and swearing and vulgar conversations...just look at the religion forums haha.
I agree that hubpages doesn't need a chat, the forums serve the purpose more than sufficiently.
People can already chat plenty in the fourms. And live chat just increases the opportunity for conversational abuse and the need for moderation, neither of which is going to make use of the Hub team's already limited time and resources.
There are already more than enough chat rooms on the Internet. I think people who really want that feature should take their chat elsewhere.

How about a Chat box where hubbers can enter and chat to each other.

I've started a chat room for hubber's to connect each other easily. Relache suggested me to start a chat room for hubbers when I posted a Thread on 'Report a problem or Suggest a new feature' forum about starting a chat room for hubpages. If you're interested.....check it out....

I've been watching the fireworks in the forums and it's made me lonely because I didn't want to join in on those discussions.Anyone around wanting a friendly chat?How's October treating you? Has Christmas started for your hubs?

Hey community! If I started up a HubPages Chat do you think you guys would start using it? It gets rather boring writing and being by yourself all the time and itd be nice to get to talk to some other hubbers and maybe even get some ideas from each other!.Anybody interested?
