I might add some improvements to the site as time goes on -- but where would I put a big chatroom-like thing like YShout?
It would have to go on another page.
Hmm... couldn't you have a collapsible window up top near members, search, help, etc. ? Could've sworn I've seen some forums with that feature before. It's not really a big deal anyways... I'm not too much for chit chat.
