I see that Im not the only one with the endless load time of the chatbox, funny thing is that It loaded the 1º time that I Logged in after the migration, after that, I can only use it by clicking the pop-up button.  =P

If you click on another webpage and then navigate to the forum index, the chatbox should load.
I'm not quite sure why the chatbox isn't loading when you first load the forums. I'll try reinstalling the chatbox sometime soon, maybe.

Suggestion:
Whenever we add a member in the ignore list, the messages from said member in the chat would be ignored also.

I want to thank all of the artist that have drawn my OCs.

I have just recently got the idea for a roleplay live chatbox.  People keep doing that on the regular chat, confusing people and/or annoying others.  So I would suggest making a second live chatbox for the roleplaying forums, plus the public likes roleplaying when it's more frequent and faster paced instead of having to post and wait... and wait... and wait...  So this is my suggestion to also fix a problem of confusion and annoyance in the live chat on the main forum page.
I used to hate MLP, now I don't.  Who cares what others think, they are just weak minded.  Bronies have conventions, what do haters have?

Personally I think the roleplay board is sufficient for roleplaying.

People aren't supposed to be roleplaying in the chatbox anyways...

Maybe the purpose of that chatbox was a way to find some friends within the forum, if you want to find someone friends a chatbox is a easier way to find them, in my opinion.

The chatbox supplements what the old IRC channel did, it gives the forum members the ability to talk to each other.

Contrary to roleplaying which is....well, roleplaying

Didn't they shut down the IRC for a reason?  o.O

I have my own theory but I never heard an official reason.  Perhaps the team thought it would be easier to moderate a chatbox directly off the forums instead of an IRC channel(Not my theory btw), even though it's not...lol.

I honestly don't know  X3

I was never around during the days of the IRC.

This is just my own observation but from what I've seen on other sites with a 'box it's usually good for those topics that don't necessarily belong in any existing threads that typically results in one of those threads that's so random and long it's an eyesore.

With the chatbox the IRC wasnt really necessary because it stretched the mods even thinner
But like others have said before RP in the RP section

But that doesn't make sense because the IRC was shut down 5 months before the chatbox was implemented  :P

But this isn't the place to be discussing it...i'll drop it, sorry  X3

The chatbox is not for roleplay. It is for chatting. Roleplay in the forums.

Well I already stated that a chatbox for a forum this size was a bad idea.  It's hard to moderate without a legit reporting system, and even with my clan's chatbox, which was alot smaller, it was hard to moderate....even with me on my computer all the time and getting admin PM and email alerts within seconds of a report.  I can't imagine how hard it is for the mods here, they'd have to have someone here 24/7 and that's nearly impossible even with the new hires.  My clan had 20 active server admins at the height of the clan and we had issues with ours...

Some of the brony social networks (including the one I used to moderate) had full fledged chatrooms which  the option of creating rooms that were invisible or password locked (and were inaccessible to myself back in my day) and instant messaging of users privately outside those rooms.  Not including the shoutboxes that existed on every 'page' (like a group sort of thing).  The biggest caveat is that system required a whole new login and had no way of going back and seeing what happened past a few minutes ago without crashing the server.

The chatbox here is actually not too terribly problematic in comparison.
