Yes, you can just add a shoutbox, no need for an IRC channel. Although IRC rules, man.

I love ThinkAtheist.com

They have a nice chat program embedded into the site. Maybe y'all should check that out and see how you feel about it.

It's weird, kind of like a facebook.
I can tell you one thing, they aren't using the same get up as us for hosting.
That's really the only hang-up. I'm not sure what they are using, it's tidy and quick but I'd guess it also costs.
Little irritating to be bombarded with the donation thing even though it seems to accept zero as an amount.

Well I think the chat program is free, or there are free version of it out there. A good place to check out ideas for chat for this site could possibly be
http://www.hotscripts.com/category/scrip...-programs/

When I was writing php code I went here all the time for new ideas and such.
I forgot to add, I haven't received another donation thing since I registered on the site.

RE: IRC added to forum page
I checked out think atheist. They are using one of those social website in a box kind of deals. You pay them money and they provide the server and software already setup.

You don't have (any significant) control over the webserver and software or any of that stuff. They just host your domain and you use their software and you get to customise the template. Your limited to whatever modules they give you at that price bracket.
Worthy Christian forums has a similar arrangement with their site. Can't really use them to draw a comparison.

ThinkAtheist seemed fairly cluttered to me when I visited a few months back.

Most the time on some of the forums I'm a member of people just use radiantblank.

Then someone goes and registers a channel and mods, and people just logon and go to the channel... easy peasy.

Ok, finally decided to cave in and install a shoutbox. It's pretty decent and seems to support private shouts.

What are you talking about? Is it invisible? Have I gone mad? Meargh!

Only on the index page. Doesn't show in the mobile version.
