There's a RP forum I'm a member of and pretty much all the members are on AIM a lot. A little while back, a permanent group chat was created for it. The chat sits around and unless you specifically leave it, you're always a member so it just sits around and random chat occurs throughout the day when people are on. That got me wondering if a lot of you guys both use AIM and would be interested in me creating something like that for PVF.

I'm a part of another RP group that has a group Skype account, if that gives you any ideas.

I've never tried RPing over chat before, but I find the idea interesting. The only problem I can see is whether everyone can get on at the same time, unless I'm interpreting this idea wrong.

It doesn't have to be RPing over the chat, but it can go either way.

Also, I heard of a place called Xat that might also work. It's a little convoluted, though.

I was more thinking general chat than RPing. AIM works pretty well for this type of thing, not need for special programs.

Okay, I definitely misinterpreted it.
Still seems like an interesting idea.

Wow, this is late for me, but to be perfectly honest, it is a really good idea, but lots of things would need to be there: like a moderator almost 24/7, a way to keep it up 24/7 and all that jazz, but looking at it, it is very plausible and a very good idea.

The thing would always stay open and you'd automatically be in it when ever you were logged into AIM, that's easy. 24/7 moderation, however, wouldn't happen and, since only trusted forum members would be invited, shouldn't be neccessary.
