I question whether these ideas of yours are actually good as you say they are. Or maybe I just question anything that is supposed to serve as a deliberate traffic driver to the site, since I personally rejoice in rejecting popularity and reveling in obscurity.
That said, we've recently (recently as in like the 5th of this month) had a spike in traffic that I can in no way explain and lately we seem to hit just about below 3000 (and sometimes over) pretty much daily.
I suppose I am open to ideas, but if I am not the biggest fan of them, I will request that you handle almost everything on your own. Please understand that my reasoning for this is that I am very, very lazy.
We used to have an IRC chat. Those are easy enough to form...in theory. But I imagine it'd be like it was before, i.e. populated by even less people than this forum is, not that that really matters, I guess. What matters more to me is that I'd like to think I have better things to do than sit in IRC these days...although that's probably untrue.
Actually, I've totally not even realized this till now, but that icon on nearly every single one of our pages says "e-mail & chat" and the e-mail page still contains a link to this: http://www.listentome.net/chat.php. My, my, talk about your false advertising.
It's highly probable that following the instructions there would still work, actually, unless that coldfront server is no longer around.
I think I might actually just make sure I actually CAN get the chat to work, then I'll update the instructions if necessary. I'm sure the effort of creating a brand new e-mail icon is not worth the hassle so it should at least be genuinely possible to join the chat, even if nobody is in there ever.
