    There was, and it had a wonderful community full of hateful people who bickered and sniped and it was beautiful.

    Then they took it away from us and now we don't.

    There was one for subscribers until very recently when it got removed. A live chat room for the whole site would just be unmanageable, there would be hundreds of people posting in it at the same time, it would be a nightmare to moderate.

    A shoutbox for the whole forum would be rather difficult to moderate, and therefore does not exist.
    Think about how many members there are, and how many people would be posting at the same time...

    many IRC clients have automods that do most of the dirty work anyways.. i agree bunching everyone into one room would get annoying but whats stopping the website from having 4 rooms per say?

    I'd like to claim full responsibility for the demise of the previous live chat room we had.
