I wish mylot could offer a real time mylot chat feature to be able to communicate our fellow mylotters who are online. In that way too if we need such an urgent responds we can ask our online friends here instantly. What do you think of this feature guys? Does mylot really needs kind of feature?

I would like it but I dont think we could be able to paid for it. If we were paid for by mylot to chat it would bring a lot of spammers and it would also undermine the site. I mean the main point is to have a discussion throught the forum part of the site. This is easier for them to link other people to.

Yeah we can't deny that it would attract more spammers and would bring more hassle to mylot staff. Anyway we could rather have a certain shout box instead chatbox. What do you think of it?

If it was just a regular chatbox with no incentive then I am sure it would work out as getting people to respond to the topics.

"...would bring more hassle to mylot staff." Thanks for thinking of us!

Hi jersey86! This topic of discussion comes up at least once a week and I'm always intrigued by the split decisions. We've gone back and forth on the topic too. The last time it was discussed we decided that it wasn't in our best interest to add a chat feature. I've seen a few profiles that have chat boxes on them. Have you seen any yet? Would something like that interest you?

I would be interested if you guys could provide us with some kind of live feature not on our profiles.

Alice is right, mylot have gone back and forth for all mylot members. I will include my self having chatbox on my profile and I talk to some of mylot members there and most of the im there exchanging discussion to some of mylot member. Feel free to visit my profile and chat there just dont forget to put your username so I can contact you when Im available haha

hi no no no it would totally ruin mylot as most people are lazy and would rather jabber than write interesting discussions. there are already too many chat rooms so let leave mylot alone as it is totally unique now and does not need to be another facebook or twitter or whatever the heck that is called. do not change mylot at all.leave it alone please.

I think that will be a great feature if we earn in the process. It should not be like the fun stuff. Even if mylot pay for the chat feature then I think the creativity of mylotting will decrease as many would prefer to chat. I think it will ultimately harm the site as a whole.

yeah you are right at some point but there are a lot of benefits by having the chat too. It can't really totally harm the site but rather it would help as those chats will be posted on a corresponding category too. for content purposes here just like we do here.

Sorry, really cant see how having a live chat feature here in myLot would benefit the site at all. What would be the point in posting and responding discussion topics if we could just chat amongst ourselves. myLot itself is as close as you will get to a chat feature as anything you type is posted instantly for all to see. If you want to have a private 1 to 1 chat with a friend then use the message service which is almost instant also. Just my own opinion, I am sure others may agree or diagree, but thats the whole point to mylot. Happy posting...
