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...

Re: Chat

Hi Shivamcoder3013;

A while ago I suggested the same thing.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

Re: Chat

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

Re: Chat

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.

Re: Chat

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.

Re: Chat

Re: Chat

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

Re: Chat

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

Re: Chat

That could work but you are talking to the wrong guy.
MIF is the only one that can add new features to the forum.

Re: Chat

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.

Re: Chat

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.
