here's an idea I have, create just two chat rooms. one is dynamic such that it depends on the group a person is in. then create a lobby where no matter what group you're in, you can chat there. that way we can reserve the group chats for subject related conversations and the lobby for off topic conversations. and the lobby should have a setting that can allow people to disable notification of chat to avoid distraction as well as an enable button. that way when the subject related chat notifies a message, you know someone definitely needs help and won't hesitate to click, unlike the lobby

where you know it's all off topic :)
There are problems keeping the question feeds on topic, and they move far slower than any chat would. I have some doubts that we could effectively keep anything that goes at the rate of chat on topic, unfortunately.

well the point is to basically have one chat for all the off topic conversations instead of having all the chats lined up down the screen... just two boxes would be okay and decent enough i think... just a thought
