    Just a suggestion, but would it be possible to add a chat room to the forums ? Just for the online members to have a talk ? We could even have special days where debates are held and all those who wish to take part will meet at a certain time.

    We could have a LOTR discussion once a months, for example, with different topis like "Did the Balrogs have wings," "Who is Tom Bombadil," etc.

    Anyway, let me know what you think.

    Far as I know, this idea has been brought up before. But I remember it being dismissed because the idea was too expensive.

    A large amount of members here use MSN or AIM for conversations. If you're interested in starting up chats, I'm you can co-ordinate them at times on either of these IM's. (MSN is easier for group convos). Just start up a thread asking people when they would be available for chats. Group conversations with purpose would be a good idea.

    specifid group discussions on MSN messenger would be a great idea.

    Well, im not the best person for organizing that sorta thing, so maybe someone else could. But if it worked out id definently give it a go. Might be hard with the different time zones though.

    Saturdays and Sundays are good for most people. When it's Saturday AM in the US, it's generally on Saturday afternoon in Europe and evening in Australia.

    When it's morning in the US, it's evening in Singapore...Australia is 2 hours ahead of Singapore...I got it. That was a great idea, Elan!

    Hmm what about using an IRC channel....they usually work, and you can have mods and stuff...plus you can just use a random server with a random channel such as #fantasy-forum if any of you use IRC.

    I set up one...it can be temporary until another one can be set up with our name. #elvenhaven is the channel :)

    I think there was a discussion about this already somewhere...can't remember where though. :D
