    Yea we have MGO chatbox and I am looking at Dragon Bytes chatbox but I like the FB IM look also and it does give some privacy to talks especially if I want to talk to a user one on one or one of my staff

    I could but I could also spend $50.00-$100 and get the functionality I wanted without spending a lot of time re-inventing the wheel. Time is more valuable.

    I use addonchat on my bb. Would never use a php based chat.

    Sure you could, but we talk about existing products.

    Arrowchat does look nice... much of a muchness between them possibly. Like jbolo for jomsocial... they all do IM reasonably well, efficient and easy.

    Never had to use the support at cometchat though, as I never had any issue installing it, reading the documentation and customising it quickly. Cannot comment on the support!!!

    I personally bought it and ate the cost - support was crappy I asked for my refund with in the time frame and never heard back from anyone from the site - tickets sent in times 3 .. i moved over to arrowchat - the guy who set up arrowchat used to write most of the modes for cometchat ... better product so far from what i saw at comerchat IMHO

    I'm on a VPS with average users 200+ and have zero issues with comet chat. Installation was as simple as uploading the files, running the install (which is already configured for vbulletin), and it all works. I then disabled all the bits I didn't want in the config, and it was that easy. This thing would run on a shared host providing the software meets the installation requirements. Excellent IM'img... I turned everything else off, as its really about the IM functionality, ie. similar to Facebook.

    Thanks for the feedback. I'm on a quad core dedicated server with 4GB RAM, so maybe V2 RC will work for me.

    That's correct, no live chat... well we have a lobby chatroom as part of Andrew Green's "Gameroom" mod but it doesn't have any real features besides basic 'room' type chat.
