Chat Room

What would it take to get a chat room started here on Vol Nation? I know lots of threads are being used for groups of people to chat and argue. It would be great to just get on here and click on a thread and just to get good info instead of wadding in a lot of useless info. I provide a bunch myself. I love this site I just thought this would make it a little better.

There are game threads for every game, football and hoops. Do a search for "game thread" and you'll get an idea of how they move.

Ya. I know other school websites have chat rooms. I remember getting on Kentucky's last year during the TN vs KY game so I could see their reactions to our 25th win ;)

I don't even bother with the game threads on here. 20 posts a minute and it's just a bunch of people wanting to hear themselves talk. Nobody actually reads what other people say. Just a bunch of people freaking out and repeating the same thing over and over again. If a touchdown is scored, 20 people post at the same time as if they are special. If there is a turnover, 20 more people saying the same thing.

I can do without the game threads for football games. Pointless.

And they do just fine without your participation.

Chatroom would be a very cool addition IMO. Don't really see the downside other than more server space.

i brought this up in a suggestion thread way back and someone mentioned that having a chat room during games would lower the sites post count. dont know if that is the actual reason but a chat room during games would be great.

I like other people's opinion on the game. But the only time I'm on VN is during halftime.

Fine by me. I actually prefer to watch the game. I'm not special... just a fan. I don't need to be cool and post

"touchdown"

"touchdown!"

"wooooo!"

"omg touchdown!"

"yeah!"

"more touchdowns!"

I have eyes.

i agree with The Orange Pearl. posts during games, dont get read. everybody just comments on what is happening. i live chat room would flow much better.
