I put the chat box up (normally) for one day a week. I do this so that it doesn't ruin standard threads in the forum. The chatbox history only lasts so long, so things talk about in there are not going to be found on google but the standard threads do. So from my point of view I want to have things to show in google to promote the site. Though recently I noticed that photography has been replaced in the chatbox with just chat of other stuff and so now I'm not so concerned. So to my question: Do you want the chatbox on permanently or just on fridays or weekends? It's up to you.
