Live chat definitely sounds like a good feature to include for AG3. Not sure if this has been brought up before, but I think that it would be more advantageous to have moderators and admins act as chat room moderators rather than whoever started the chat room.

The chat rooms will be created by admins, and the current mods/admins would monitor them. The problem is that there probably won't be enough moderators to monitor the chats. Let's say they start off by creating five chat rooms, there aren't enough moderators on throughout the day to monitor all of them. An idea that has been suggested is adding chat mods (it has worked on other websites), but they don't like the idea for whatever reason.

Would the chat rooms be assigned a specific topic by the admins who created them as well, or would the topic be left open-ended? In that sense, assuming that the former is made true, users are almost limited in what they can and can't talk about.

A trust issue, perhaps? I know that I'm always paranoid about doing group work since I often can't trust the other members to do their jobs.

Assuming that the topics assigned are very specific, of course.

Ideas included having both. Like adding chat rooms to talk about sports, games, and some for anything.

Must be, but that's not a good reason to rule out the idea. It's a good reason to rule out candidates if they've done something that made you not trust them, but not the idea.

In that case, they'll just have to be more selective about who they choose, I suppose.

THIS IS NOT A BUMP, THIS IS A SERIOUS REPLY

Recently, I haven't seen as much of a visitor network for this system to be used as much as hoped back in 2011/12, and would lead to the eventual ghost-town affair on it. I would just have the forums, and chuck this at the bottom, if it was to go ahead.

Armor Games has a small team that works around the clock to better the website in numerous ways. This also means that they have to focus their attention on various matters, leaving several lying dorment for a while, simply because of their level of urgency and/or in terms of necessity...

I'm not saying there won't be a live chat on Armor Games in the future @Seashark001, but right now their attention is focused on more pressing matters. I am sure there will be such a feature, but we simply have to wait untill they can start working on it, if it is to be implemented into the website of course. Please have some patience with this... =)

If you really want to send someone a message without the rest of the site seeing the content, you can always exchange email addresses with other users. Disqus makes it much easier to do this than the old system did because you can instantly edit it out after the other user takes it down.

If you don't already have an email address with a password, you'll have to explain to me how you have an account here.
