Why there is no chat on CCM

February 2016 team does not want to implement "chat" (real-time chat) on the site for the following reasons:
  • To keep a very active and responsive forum allowing everyone to share.
  • Exchanges on a chat can not be capitalized and sharing of information is only done at present, while the forum can be accessed via post and allow everyone to take a discussion at its start.
  • This will tend to encourage discussions understood only by those most active in the chat.
  • On a forum, it is not necessary to be connected to have the answer to his question.
  • A chat is difficult to manage and could, in some cases, result in private discussions that could lead to abuse of any kind.
