For our Sunday and Wednesday Night Chat's we have been using some free software called MChat. It's a good program (it only messes up every once in a while) and lets us chat but I have wanted something a little more advanced a while now. I love the idea of making this community more interactive and I would really love to be able to push the boundaries making it so all of us can be easier connected as a group. IMHO how all of us connect is really want makes this small community much more connected to each other than those massive coaster forums out there. This isn't about how many posts there are on the site but about how many people are friends and how many people become family.
I'd love to see features like these in a chat software:
- Always on Facebook like Personal Messenging
Mobile Chat Apps
Needless to say cool feature filled software is not free. I've actually found a couple. One of them is called Addon Chat that does the PM'ing and photos in chat as well as mobile chat (although not through a app) that will run $115 (chat software plus mobile) and there is one called Comet Chat that offers everything on my list although it is at varying cost from $49 through $500 to add the video/audio chat functionality.
My question is upgrading and adding more functionality to the forums something that you'd like and then would you be interested in kicking in a few bucks so we can get it as like many of you I live on a budget and I refuse to have advertisements here?
Let me know what you think.
