Sure, could be dangerous though...
I think it's a good idea mate....although as zel said...opens the way for a lot of idiots to spoil things...maybe if it was members only ?
Cheers guys definitlly 100% members only, can it be any more dangerous than the War zone
I'm thinking it would be dangerous with... ummm.... certain combinations of members online (present company definitely included!)
the arguments against?
-Would people then not post - which creates a larger board and therefore drawing more notice to it via google and such....??
-Would people get entrenched in chat and not do the multiple window technique that allows you to, say... help a newbie here, post a file from your collection there.... while being involved in a little War Zone post war in another window...??

Live help with site issues
Live help with equipment cofiguration, hardware or software issues
Live collaboration - cooperative MIDI file sequencing or other joint projects.
Site staff Private channel for dynamic site discussions. Great way to administrate/moderate a site in real-time.
Sharing other projects that exceed attachment size for posting here (or other works/files that you (obviously) own copywrite to...
Don't be afraid to use it. If you don't know how to use mIRC or any other IRC client, use the java applet.
