      Do you think we might be able to get an IRC channel going sometime? It might be easier to get some bio discussions going on it =)

      You could try to get more members by using chats and more search help

      Yeah, make chats and allow for the creation of private chats so that there wouldn’t be a gizillion users in one room, which could turn into one big disaster.

      I dont know if this is possible; but what about having a chat section in biology-online?

      Good idea, I was wondering if there is a reason why there is no general chat?

      seems like it would be easier than connecting to irc

      You can set up a Java script that you can download for free that connects to the server/channel that you set. So Where it says Forum and Tutorials, you can squeeze a button that says “Chat” that takes you right to the chat.

      There is probably a plugin for phpBB or whatever you’re using.

      Just makea channel on irc.efnet.net #Biology-Online … or something =)

      Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is a form of real-time Internet text messaging (chat) or synchronous conferencing.] It is mainly designed for group communication in discussion forums, called channels,but also allows one-to-one communication via private message as well as chat and data transfer, including file sharing.

      You guys think a chat service that is used primarily by internet questionable people, pirates and political groups is suitable here? Once a chat room is made other people can come in too. Since this forums is based off a phpbb script the owner of the site I dont know who that is can look into one of the phpbb addons that has chats. At least that way the service stays on this server as opposed to some other untrustworthy place
