    I have been thinking about this for a while, and finally decided to post it.

    If any of you have a facebook, which I am sure a lot of you do, you've probably noticed the handy little chat bar at the bottom that shows your online friends and gives you a quick and easy way to chat with them.

    Well, lately I have been browsing a couple of other forum sites, for PS3 things mostly, and I have noticed that quite a few forum websites have implemented that chat bar.

    My suggestion is that Bgizzle add one in for iPod Touch Fans. I notice that on here people often send messages to friends that say things like "Get on AIM", or "Get on MSN" etc. so obviously people do find it easier and more private to chat via instant messages. So if we can do it, why not make one that shows all of a users online friends and allows for easy messaging between them

    I am not sure how difficult this would be, or if the Forum engine thing (Vbulletin I think he uses? or something like that) even offers that, but I just think it would be a nifty little feature to throw in.

    For the record, there are a TON of people online at a time here. Like, a TON. So, you'd need a hell of a revolutionary interface. xD

    For the record, I realize that.

    Which is why I said:
    It would only show the specific logged in user's friends that are online. Does the facebook one show everyone logged onto facebook?

    That would just be silly to show everyone online.

    Eh, I don't think that would work out.
    Why? I just think so.

    We have an unofficial IRC room, but it's dead (I think?).

    It's always been dead, they attempted to revive it, but it pretty much failed.

    That'd be annoying as hell.

    Now, the same with with IM clients (MSN, AIM) would be a lot cooler on an iPod/iPhone!

    Doing some swipe on the bottom brings up your status and any messages received.
