    Is there a way we can put a chatbox in this website? It would be good for tech support and other purposes.

    Yes, it could be implemented (Vbulletin forum) but it would be too crowded, since there are so many active members. Would also create unneccesary work for the mods.

    the whole purpose of a forum is to have a searchable record of everything that goes on. not only would a chat replicate forum functionality but it would also only benefit people that are there rather than everybody that takes the time to search and read. in short, no. for the record, that's also why there is NO officially sanctioned IRC channel, though to the best of my knowledge, an unofficial one is run by some members.
