Im rlly bored right now and no one uses AIM anymore for some reason.. i went to bored but they kept kicking me for no reason and singles is filled with pervs.. so haa, anyone have any? I think the mac-forums should start up a chat room called mac chat and we can all talk on there..

iChat doesn't have ongoing, active chat rooms. The chatting is intended for private communications between a group of colleagues or friends/family.

A server (let's say a spare Mac at a company) can create a chat room and leave it open permanently, but the only way to find it is to know the name of the "room," and even then the "admin" (the person who set up the room) has control of who gets in. Mac-Forums COULD have one if they wanted; ehMac (a site for Canadian Mac users) has one, but of course most of the time it's empty.

IRC has always been, imo, kind of a PITA as a method of chat: I was quite active on it in Doctor Who chats, but as the Internet got easier and forums such as this one sprung up I didn't find IRC and its myriad DOS-like commands to be so attractive anymore.

Thanks for that Chas_m. Hand"t thought of that even though I have been. Part of a few multiple party chats set up by ad hoc connections. When set up this way are there limits on the number of connections? May not still be true but I think the practical limits were 10 audio and 4 video simultaneously. Don"t know what it was for text.

As far as I know there is no limit for chat connections, because they don't take up significant bandwidth.
