If only the chat system knew what prompted your post: Are you posting a question? a comment? Are you replying to someone? to a sepcific thread?
So you are in a chat room and you try to send a reply to one of the other people just as they leave and go to another room. They are still online, but they don't see your reply. Why not send that message via IM?
And why are your logging into the chat room 5 times a day hopeing to run into someone who you met and were really impressed with.. why can't you just sent them a message and have the chat server let them know it is there the next time they log in? Just like email
And why can't you switch to chat when you are having a "conversation" by email? Or switch to email when the other person has to "brb"?
I've seen chat sessions that should be saved in a forum, especially if they could be sorted into a sort of thread. It would be nice if only the best threads got saved. Of course, they could be edited...
How many times have you said something in response to one persons post only to have it assumed to be a response to another persons post? Wouldn't it be nice if the chat server could thread things like a forum?
And don't you hate it when you post a question and people don't respond because they are busy saying "Hello!" or "goodbye" to someone who just entered or left the room?
