Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to Is someone interested in the ACS 4.x Java Chat Module for openacs 3.2.x?
I find moderated java based chats pretty useful for discussions involving one "expert" who gives answers and many people that post questions... The thing about those moderated chats is that a moderator intercepts all the questions and posts only those to the public that are being answered... This way you could cut off unwanted commercial posts in big public discussions. Also if too many people posted questions at the same time the answers of the expert would get out of sight pretty quickly!
Have you done anything in this field?
