You'd probably be better just getting your friend's msn addresses for msn messenger because there are never very many people online so a chatroom would be pretty dead anyway.

Msn is the best instant messenger, I used to use yahoo but it isn't as good. And it spends alot of time introducing features msn already has to try and catch up. The only good thing about yahoo is that you can send offline messages.

your best bet is probably to use trillion which incorporates all of them.

the sad fact is I can only run ICQ2Go and Yahoo on my computer at work. I like Yahoo, but all my friends are on ICQ, so I use it. Trillian is a nice thing - it has some features other messengers don't, but I used to have problems with smilies for example.

As for the chat room, I don't really see a need for it either. When there are several people online, one could PM them to have a more personal conversation... I'm not a fan of chatrooms anyway ;-)

I've never been much in favour of a chat room for BaO either really. I'm not certain how the most modern chat rooms operate but as far as I understand there often isn't much or any records of conversations. With the range of ages here at BaO I feel the "forum" format is much better as I feel it gives less likelihood of the worst kind of trouble occurring.

I get the feeling that chat rooms can particularly attract problems too...have thought this for a long time, and even moreso after seeing a TV program here in the UK called "Kill me if you can" a couple of weeks ago. Most of the serious problems that I've heard about regarding the internet and young people's personal safety seem to originate from chat room - be careful people.

what you need is an irc chatroom, several forums I know have them and take full records of the conversations...posting them on their website so people can read back through them, not sure how its done though but it can be done....

I don't think it would work though, only forums with thousands of members can get active chatrooms but mostly they still don't manage it and you only get about 2 mods and 1 member in at any 1 time....
