Hello There, Guest!  LoginRegister
Welcome to the former forums for DidYouKnowGaming?! In March of 2013, VGFacts was launched and this community was merged into the new forums there. These forums were originally taken offline at that time but I brought them back as an archive while transferring sites to the new server. Registrations and all interaction (posting, editing, moderation, etc.) are disabled but everything can still be read. If you're interested in joining the community, head on over to https://www.vgfacts.com/forums/ and join there but I've always thought it was important to preserve a site's roots so these forums will forever be available in this read-only state. Enjoy!

A nice, working chat (The return of the gamer)
Yeah, anyway, I made a thread about it at the BEGINNING of the forums. when I asked about it, you guys said "Yeeeeeeah, we should wait till we have more people on."

Look, I think we have enough people to be able to do the exact replica of the Titanic with everyone sinking. Or, to be more precise, enough to make a new record as the most people in a thumb wrestling chain (Did You Know the record is 957?)

So anyway, a chat would be cool now. Skype sucks, MSN never gets used, Facebook bombards you with notifications and MySpace... (... wait, what?)

I'm sure it's easy to make, but I'm a noob, so I may have said something dumb ^_^. But if it's possible, I think a lot of people will use it.

So, what do you guys think about it?

A chat function would be real nice I think. Sometimes you just want to chat with the fine people of this forum without having to post and wait for someone to reply.

I used to be a part of a forum where the chatbox was huge. Would be nice to see one but if it's not made...meh.

There aren't that many people active to warrant one, IMO. I mean, the most I've seen online at a time was like 6.

Well if the guests could use it as guest (some random number) there would actually be quite a bit of activity on there 'cause including guests there is always at least 10 people on, just almost never 10 members on at the same time.

Nah I think the chat should only be used by members otherwise guests can just spam/flame the chat and there would be no way to ban them unless you can ban their IP or something like that.

I remember my Mum used to say that ^_____^






























It usually meant "NO!"

I was just thinking that - hopefully it won't be the case. I'd enjoy a chat window

:O

Great Scott, God has just "agreed" to something I wrote. I may now die between a pair of roasted clowns shooting squid-squirrels.

Actually I just remembered how that gets countered, most chats that allow guests to speak will block a user for 5 minutes or so if they start spamming the chat. (If you want an example of that Twitch.tv does that, the only difference is that guests can't chat there. [All the sites I know of that allow guests do illegal things, so I'm not sure if I can mention them without breaking forum rules])

Oh man, Kappa faces in the chat would be goatlike.
