Just a suggestion, but an irc chat thing could be in the header of this forum.

Upside is easy and everyone gets to be part of the discussion as it happens live. This i really like. + its not saved so you can be a bit more out there.

Downside is it is more moderation.

But it may well be fun. If it can be done, why not trial it? Putting everything in one place is simpler and easy for users.

IRC change is coming, now that the people running IRC and the people running the forum are the same. It's just not a priority, and keeping things the same for now will help people continue to settle into a familiar-looking forum.
There is free speech and there is being an annoying twat. This user is exercising his right to the latter.

interesting. A site hosted chat I would use (especially if it shared the login). You know how I feel about IRC. I shall watch your career with great interest.

But then it would be harder to talk behind people's backs

I need the thing I'm missing to install the thing I'm missing.  It's terrible.

Get a flash drive or SD card, install that onto it from a different computer, then copy it onto your system.

There are downsides to having Chat built into the forums.

1.  Guests will probably be able to read it.  People post personal information on the current IRC.

2.  People, especially noobs, will likely think that the chat is a live FE Q&A session and treat it as such.

3.  We do talk about people behind their backs a lot there and it would make it harder to do that if anyone can see it.

These are a few that I could think of off the top of my head.

Why not have a built in chat and one separate from the forum but still affiliated with FES

How can you get an installation error when you wouldn't be installing anything?

It's pretty nice. :P I mean, as long as you have it open and aren't only doing that. That would be boring. And also dumb.
