I would like to answer this question in public, because I have been asked about it a few times in PM.
We are not planning to have chat on this board. It is fun, but sometimes leads to problems on the forum. We want to avoid that.
Those of you who enjoy chatting, I will put up a sticky in the main section so that you may set up MSN group chats (or Yahoo or whatever) when you want to. It will help you organize them and let everyone know.
Thanks, and please feel free to comment here. You don't have to question board set up / policies / etc in PM, we welcome the questions!
