    Default Permanent chat purchase

    There should really be a "permanent chat" purchase option, possibly with a "rent-to-own" option i.e. that your temporary chat purchases subtract from the cost of buying the feature permanently later. As it stands we had a brief flurry of chat when it was a novelty, but then once things slowed down, everyone let their subscriptions lapse because there wasn't enough going on.

    If you had a core of us regs chatting habitually, new users would be more inclined to shell out for daily/weekly/monthly passes to join in the conversation, but as it is, no one is going to pay for chat privileges if they believe they'll have no one to chat with.

    Now if you make the chat free everyone could parttake, you would however need to have some moderators on 24/7 just to keep it clean but if it was free to reg'd ppl the chat room would be a happening place

    I'll see if we can bring something in that will help. Chat won't be free to everyone though, I doubt that will be an option. But will look into free year long chat permissions and so on, for reaching goals or just for being cool. Or having the option to buy them.

    But will get back with something soon.

    I just don't get why chat is not free?

    Have a minimum post count and correct me if I'm wrong, but can't moderators turn chat off of anyone who violates the stadnards of the chat room?
