Forum Idea


I would love it if this forum had a private message system much like the one utilized by facebook i.e.; keep the the private message tab up top but also allow little pop up boxes and list that allows you to add friends and see when they are online so that you can communicate through the chat box. Thoughts?

That is alot of work tho... It would be much easier to just have a chat room where members can instant message each other about whatever they want to talk about. I agree though these things would be a pretty cool addition to the forum.

some things are great ideas (like yours) but vbulletin is a forum software with only specific mods called plug-ins. if there is no plug in for a private message system like facebook then its not like you can go in and just start hacking at the forum software's code, though im pretty sure there is a chat room plug-in

This has been discussed before, and a chat room will not be implemented in the near future.
