    I think that it would be a good idea if iPodTouchFans set up some sort of chat on the site. There would be various help rooms and general chat places. Therefore, people could directly ask questions to a live audience and get live help and also discuss various things all live.

    There could also be ranks, for example:

    • Guest (guest)
    • iPod Amateur (joined on the forums)
    • iPod Touch Fan (100+ posts on the forum)
    • iPod Touch Genius (has contributed to the community with guides and other things and is VERY knowledgeable with iPods and iPhones)
    • Moderator (your classic mod)
    • Administrator (admin)

    We could also have rooms based on the forums too, for example:

    • Off-topic/General Discussion
    • iPhone
    • iPod Touch
    • iPad
    • Firmware
    • Events (Apple events, etc)
    • Genius Rooms (1 on 1 help with iPods)

    I think that this would be a great addition to the site, what do you guys think?

    And Palringo.

    I believe there has been talk about a site chatbox, but I don't think that the main users of this forum would be mature enough for it.

    The IRC exists for this purpose. It is however, unofficial, and will remain so, because it cannot be moderated effectively.

    for anyone curious:

    irc.freenode.net

    there will never be an official chat room. helping someone one time in the chatroom helps one person. helping someone one time on the site helps that person, plus everyone that finds the post through searching on the site and through google.

    IPTF Chat

    yes.. agree with rpabs.. no need for chatroom - they are just polluted with advertising and the same people.. this way you get feedback from more than just the people online at one time, and its moderated too so there is no nastiness going on.

    no need for chat.. forum good
