So I had the idea to put a chatbox on the site somewhere were we can talk real-time about our AWs, games or anything really. What do you guys think?

What about a Ventrilo server instead?

EDIT: Durbin and I have the same post count. LOL

I hate them too. I would do Ventrilo. Nothing better than real-time. Can have different rooms, some for one on one tech support, etc.

Any chat box I would use would be ad free so no worries there. I'll look into it. There are a few that I am familiar.

A vent server wouldn't be bad either, especially if people start gaming together :D

Do we currently have hosting options for a vent server? I know this can get a little pricey.

Well there is a free version that can be run but with limitations. Typically they limit you to 5 users logged in at a time. In order to overcome this you need to pay a 3rd party hosting company to provide the server, they in return charge you per slot. I've seen as low as .25 cents a slot up to $2.00 dollars a slot. Average server should be at minimum a 100 slot server.

Ah, makes sense.... So now I know that Alienware Arena may have actually paid some to get me my private ventrilo channel; I feel touched...
