Some forum owners believe that adding a chatroom will increase forum activity. In theory, it's a tactic that might work. However, I've witnessed the addition of a chatroom kill a forum. Before its addition many members posted on the forum but from the time the chatroom was added, many of those who were on the forum only to socialize opted to, from then on, use the chatroom more. Activity on the forum dropped and those who weren't all that interested in "chatting" left. What do you guys think? Are chatrooms that bad for forums?
