I'm not a 'web architect' but I've been to a few sites that have integrated chat, would it be possible to integrate a chat system to the forum itself? This'd be a good idea as it'd mean we'd have more people in the chat, and remove the need to open Mibbit separately. Brikwars chat is awesome when full, its just hard to find it full.

You pull on your finger, then another finger, then your cigarette
The wall-to-wall is calling, it lingers, then you forget
Ohhh how how how, you're a rock n roll suicide"
