We're considering adding a chat style forum for general chatting and "watercooler gossip". Should we create this forum?

Yes, and call it "Watercooler Chat".
Yes, and call it "GasBuddy Town".
Yes, but I'd like to suggest a name.
No, I like it the way it is.

I'd guess that they decided that there is not enough interest. Since no one has posted here since my last post in 1/3/2009 I'd have to agree.

I would say No. I like this site because it is very easy to find the current information that I need. A 'chat room' or 'chat group' would be off topic, in my opinion.

Aren't there enough friggin' chat rooms on the internet? I know you're trying to get people to spend more time on this site, but, geez, part of high gas prices, at least in a very indirect manner, is from people being so fat and lazy they can't get up. More time chatting is kinda counterproductive.
But, hey, why go outside and make real friends? That requires social skills, a personality. Let's all go pimp out our MySpace pages and wait for the perverts to come get our kids with them!

I like the "Watercooler Chat" but wondered if adding "GasBuddy" would make the name too long? "GasBuddy Watercooler Chat"?

I would like to suggest "Passing Gas" for the name. We would be passing information about all things fuelish. It is an attention getter, and it is not really vulgar even if it has another meaning in many circles. Besides it's 'Punny'.

As a variation of that name you could call it "Friends Passing Gas" or some other variation.

I think it would be a great idea to have a chat call Watercooler Chat. Because it use to be that all chat and gossip happened at the watercooler.
This would allow a mixture of topics all in one chat area.

Great Idea!

let's avoid visual overload.... and keeping site free of language abuse would be problematic. One gateway to contact others would probably suffice.
