Free Chat room
« on: September 20, 2015, 07:30:04 am »
Hello Guys
          Probably this my first post in this hosting forums. I'm an experienced forumer and have tested different hosts like forumotion, phpbb (mostly phpbb3) etc. Now recently I moved here to test this host out. I just found a very basic but a major difference between phpbb3 and CAF (createaforum) that phpbb3 provide free chat room whereas CAF don't. Chat room is very essential to keep the members interest in the forum and probably you are going to pay for your forum if its members are interested in it. So this is my appeal and suggestion to provide free chat room option. This will help you in growing the community. Thank you.

Free I can't offer it uses too much resources. I tend to be against chat room since it stop being from posting on the forums.
I do have a shoutbox that is free which is part of ezportal system.

Then what about the phpbb3, how come they providing free chat. CAF proved to be so awesome and facilitating for me as it contains many more functions and opertunities, that's why I moved from phpbb3 to here and decided to start my same forum as in phpbb3 here (I deleted the old forums by the way). The only thing I'm having trouble in getting audiance is chat box as many people are bounded by it as they create friends and chit chat most of the time and stay at forums for long time duration. And by the way, while I was bolding some words in my this post, I just figured it out that there are no BBcodes displaying in here while they do appear in the forum I created? Do we have to pay to remove these codes.

I know right.
Another thing that the LEGEND names are not displayed thus making it hard to find the authority members
