Perhaps see about getting some actually real time chat rooms going that people can pop in and out of? Forums are fun, but it's better to be able to chat instantly to others with similar interests.

This is something that has been brought up before, but hosting a chat client is going to take a lot of bandwidth, not to mention the coding needed as well as the constant moderation.

This is not saying we hate the idea and it will never ever happen, but at the moment this is not within our resources. We'll keep it on note and when we are bigger and more able to support that sort of thing we can work on it. Thanks.

Have you considered using IRC?

Yes. It's been brought up in the past and there is an unofficial weasyl irc chat.
We're not making an official one just yet because we don't have the staff power just yet to stay in a chat and be sure it's properly moderated a majority of the time to meet Weasyl standards.

When we are a bit bigger we will be looking into that though.

Completely understandable!
