The forum system is fairly good, but the response rate would be much faster if there was an instant chat. This may have been suggested numerous times before, but...

Hi Shivamcoder3013;

A while ago I suggested the same thing.

**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?Combinatorics is Algebra and Algebra is Combinatorics.**

Well, cant we have an IRC chat with many rule-abiding ops to make sure there is no flaming/spamming?

Hi;

I do not think there is any way to control those things on forums let alone on chat groups. Anyway, only MIF could implement it here.

Well, I would prefer if he made a separate link to the IRC. And well, on the forum I haven't seem that many people who flame/spam.

That is because they are being removed.

Talking about the spammers. GiB is a different problem entirely.

Why not re-program the chat so you cannot type the same phrase more than 2 times in 3 minutes?

That could work but you are talking to the wrong guy.

MIF is the only one that can add new features to the forum.

Close to impossible for me to contact MiS. I am not a real member, and the only time I met him on a live thread was in my into.

I will ask him to look in on this thread.

We simply can't control chat that well. People could get nasty, or there may be predators.

'Real Members' can IM each other, though.

Surely at least 50 of them would be able to monitor the chats? Private chat, maybe not. But you could disable that, so everything is public.
