I was just thinking, with all the BS that goes on in-thread, (the Garage, people's build threads, etc...) would it be possible to have a chat-room portion of the site?
Of course things like Live would still be important and whatnot, but for the conversation bs (Hows the weather? Your girlfriend's hot and so is her mom... ) could be held in a chatroom rather than blowing threads up with off topic convos.
Just an idea, like facebook. ()
