    There's no way I'd be in favor of putting something like that on our front page. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    As shoptroll mentioned, if someone really wants to talk real-time, just drop by one of our irc channels #beyondunreal or #fragbu.

    In case you didn't notice, "important" holidays and birthdays always get a thread in the OT forum. And for greeting mates, use PMs.

    Imagine how chaotic it would be with the number of active members..

    It would only get abused.
