We cannot have an official OBOD chat room, unless it can be moderated 24/7 by Ovate or Druid members of OBOD and as they say, "that ain't gonna happen".
However, there is not reason we cannot have Druid chat, open to the public that is not under the auspices of OBOD.
There are many forums that support online chat, including Yahoo, IRC, AIM etc. The most compatible and easy to use is AIM (AOL instant messenger) and one does not have to be an AOL member.
The most versitile is IRC, though it is the most complex to use.
I would also be willing to host a chat - JAVA or CGI - on kernunnos.com, but need advice and probably help configuring a FREE chat program.
I can install Jabberchat on Kernunnos.com is you all think that is sufficient.
