A few thoughts on this, I'm trying not to add too many mods to the existing forum because each mod introduces a new potential security flaw, but also I think there is many alternative chat boxes etc.. that work quite well like Skype (not sure why Peter can't install it?)

Have you tried Google (Gmail Chat / Talk) you can install it on Android also and it works very well? Also does video etc..

I've seen other forums where the chat box is used and they don't really get used.

I guess I'll wait and see how much demand there is for it from our members though?

Um, i'm on an ipad( yeah yeah, i know, creative type i am,,, NOT) and the border surround is made up of like giant pixels, the top banner has a row of these dot things.
It has only just gone on in last couple days.
On a normal pc, the whole screen just shows the forum, but on ipad, unless you two finger expand slide to make webpage bigger, the dots are there, dots are apprx 4 mm diam, multi coloured. Only on this forum site.
Dunno,
Anyone else on ipad seeing this???

I could whip up a basic mysql/php online chat. You can have a chat section beside forum, an open room for all that are logged in...

The dot things are now gone.
I jumped onto a few other sites none thete, just this. On ipad thete is a black border on each side of webpage approx 25 mm wide, they were there.

Maybe it is a sniffing my avgas moment again, but they were there!
Why are there two men in white coats putting me in a restraint chair right now!!
