You will note that there is now a "chat" item in the blue member bar. We have installed an integrated chat that requires no login. It simply grabs your username and password and automatically logs you in.
Please note that this chatroom is very much beta! WE have not even designed the look of the chat room, so it looks very weird! You can try it out and hopefully we will have it looking better in a few days.
I am also going to have a spot somewhere on the board where it shows who is in the chat room too. I'll post a message in this thread when it is completed.
