How interested would you be in clubs, discussion groups getting to use the chatroom for real-time hanging out? More than once, on a regular basis? Where you could hang out, chat, have fun, be serious, all at the same time without refreshing the page or anything like that? For fun, you know.
Special interest. Even speeches and anniversary parties could be held there, invites being PM'd, etc. Couldn't it be fun? :) :bounce:

Like...

10am ET on Saturdays: A-U Ladies Society
1pm ET on Saturday, 5/31/08: Eregliartiany's 1-year speech and celebration party
7pm ET on Mondays: Twilight group
5pm ET Fridays: Welcoming Team
3pm ET on Sundays: Nascar Club

Of course the chat wouldn't just become that, but wouldn't that be fun?

Yes, It would provide more club unity and enable them to work things together as a club. For example, the Frodo club, and it's website.

I said maybe, as right now, the chat isn't loading for me, even though I've updated Java X3

I think the idea sounds interesting. It would be nice to have some change around here!

I think this idea is interesting, but I see potential flaws. Would the clubs board/WT threads still exist? Would people still be able to post anniversary threads on the forum? It seems redundant to do so, but it's so much easier to post an entire thank you here than on the chat where people would have to scroll to read it.

That sounds great. I'm not apart of a club as of now, but I think it would give those that are a more personal feel when they're talking.

I share the same concerns as Larael. I wouldn't have any problem with this as long as the regular WT/Clubs/Anni speeches don't change. Since I can't go into chatrooms and if all these regular clubs ect. were taken away from the forum that would basically ruin them all for me. :erm: but if this is just for whoever CAN use them and have fun while the rest of the stuff around the forum remains the same, I would be cool with that. :yes:

I'm going to be completely honest and say that I don't like this idea. I'm not allowed on any chatrooms, AU or not, and when I tried to get on one time it wouldn't let me. I think a lot of people would be left out and I don't see why this is super important. :no: AU has been going fine for years and all of this change is making me really sad. :(

Please keep the clubs board and the Welcoming Team.

I must agree with Aramel. Don't fix what isn't broken. ;)

I don't really see where it says we wouldn't have clubs threads or the WT page anymore. But that could just be me.

I like the idea. A Lot. It would be great for groups of people to hang out for a while and get together and just be random and bouncey.

However, I don't like the speech thingy. I think that should be kept to the forum so everyone can see it. But an anniversary madness-fwee fest?! Heck, yes! :D

Go for it... but I wouldn't use it. I don't see the point of it. What's wrong with chatting on a forum?

^ Sometimes it's just nice to be random without having to worry about keeping on topic and having posts with substance. ;)

Also, if you're trying to dicuss something, and everyone knows they have to be there for a certain time, you're probably going to make plans quicker, as everyone will be on at once.

I definitely see the potential for discussing things that normally wouldn't be allowed here or even just being random and silly, however I also see this as a cover-up for what's going on right now.

I'd love to be able to do it, but another concern of mine is those who are not able to/or allowed to be on the chat. The forum would need to remain the same for them.

Erm, I voted no. I actually don't mind the idea... but I'm not allowed to use chatrooms, so... well, that answer was a no brainer. ;) Uhm, I mean, as long as the forum doesn't change... I guess it would be okay. :erm: But, it already seems to me that the forum is changing too much. :(
