The thing I like about chat being in one place: people come in because they want to talk. With a sitewide feature, I foresee a lot more of what happens on facebook: an enthusiastic greeting met with a cool dismissal. Yes, you can go offline if you don't want to talk, but not everyone takes the time to push the button.

Other than that, I like the idea of a sitewide chat bar.

I;d rather not have it site-wide. It might distract our reviewing etc. And besides, it's nice to have chat in just one page and people who do not want to be disturbed needn't enter chat in ze first place.

Okay to a trial run though!

Honestly, that would be lovely. I'm either too oriented around chat to be reviewing or debating or whatever nonsense I seem to get myself into on this site, or I'm headfirst into some epic plot line to realize that I've left chat open for a good hour and a half without checking back in on it.

It would be lovely. YWS is predominantly a writing website, of course, but social-networking is also a large part of it. After all, people are more inclined to review the work of others if they know a little something about the writer first.

So a big thumbs up on the trial run from me.

so...when can we expect this, or is it not going to happen for awhile?
I'm just curious, so feel free to ignore me :3
