What's the status on the private chat room idea someone suggested a while back? Not even being considered... still thinking about it... or will definately do it one day?

I believe that was an excellent suggestion worth persueing... maybee locking down the off-topic into private - by invitation only. As said before by the origional suggestor... the first timers just strolling thru this site would not be exposed to the negativity of off-topic. I'm not against off topic-I do a majority of my posting there, but that is enough to give a new comer a negative impression of our wonderful HWC site as a whole.
