Default Chat or Shoutbox feature

Hi, I was just thinking that it would be great to have a chat or shoutbox feature added to the forum.

It's fun for all, and also handy for those who need an instant reply.

Just a thought

Its sort of like an instant messaging client on a website, usually put on the front page.

YellBox - Free chat window for your website. has a demo on the left.

Basically what gimark said.

We have one on the Futuremark Forums.

Users generally like it, helps build a better sense of community.
