personally, I never saw this thing working... belive me, I had been in many forums.. people just ain't into chating.. I don't mind if Chopper opens one, and I don't mind even being around, but I'm just not seeing this thing working... guest will stick in, too, uninvited.. just a big mass... your call though..
I think IRC is the way to go. Just using a MIRC script for TF, not a Java Base client. I have a good amount of experience in scripting. Also my IRC knowlage base is reliable, I use to have a server admin o-line on a net earlier, before I massed kicked a chan by mistake cause my script was all screwed up. *sigh* TF can have it's own IRC network for $20 from Shellz.net. Kinda costly though for a forum that doesn't charge membership fees. I would host the network and all but my Linux machine is dead and I am too lazy to fix it .
