I dont know if its okay to start a new thread for this but I always feel that it would be amazing if there was some kind of group chatting facility...where we could chat instantaneously commenting and criticising in live. It would be awesome to be able to delve into live debates and feedback.
Just my opinion...

And you can remove this thread if it isnt in the right place...

I agree. This is has been suggested in the past and I think it would be a great addition, so long as we're thinking about a site redesign at the moment. But I've no idea of the integration issues or additional costs associated with incorporating a chat client so I'm not sure how feasible it is. What say you, admins?

I moderate at another forum where we had a live chat function. It was used rarely, as users were forced to delve into the lower reaches of the forum (well, actually, two clicks away, but I wanted it to sound dramatic :) ) in order to access it.

I think, if CSS were to implement a chat function, it should be located on the homepage. If not, then I can't see anyone using it frequently, or, in a worse case, at all.

And also...it would be really cool if there were seperate chatrooms for all of the different sections we have...
I dont have any idea how this is going to affect costs or how problematic it may be...just a thought...

Even if it were practically possible, that wouldn't work. We simply don't have the volume of users online at any given time to support multiple chat rooms.
