    Can it be done? Yeah. Is it going to be done? Not sure. There is a plugin available for xenforo however it is paid so I'll have to find out from @slowpoke if we have any money to buy that, it's only £25 but the money has to come from somewhere and we're going to be moving away from this forum at some point in future.

    Oh I almost forgot to say it's not £25 for just that feature, it's £25 for http://xenforo.com/community/resources/conversation-essentials.275/ which I think has quite a lot of features that would come in handy for both our staff and users

    ...:(
    What about the data, I know this very unlikely but will we still have our tags?
    And when you say move away, like move away from XenForo?

    Yeah, we'll be moving to a custom made forum software at some point in the future made by curse called cobalt. I don't really know much about it as I've never actually used it but it's probably a while before we move to that. The data will remain but not sure how their trophy point system will work.

    That Conversation Essentials thing looks pretty neat.

    It's late here, I'm tired, and I'm bit nosy at the moment, Conversation Essentials? :p
    Please excuse any grammatical mistakes I make. :)

    Glad to see my feedback getting replies! Thanks for being such a good staff member, @Captainnana. :p
    Now, the plugin looks really nice, it seems worth it - and affordable, really, isn't? @slowpoke will make the final decision, I'm guessing - which is completely fair I mean, after all, he is the big boss. ;)

    It could be useful if someone doesn't belong, but refuses to leave the conversation themselves.

    This has happened before, leading to the remaining people having to make a new conversation. It was a pain, since all the relevant information was spread out over about 6 pages of responses in the old conversation.
    I'm sure it'll happen again too.

    I suppose so, but then again, one will fear being kicked and will not express his feelings properly due to being scared of getting kicked.

    Like PMs? As in privet messages? What's the point? In most cases only 2 people are going to see it. And if you like the message just PM them back saying so.

    I'm currently in a convo with about 10 people. If everyone were to post a "+1" or "I agree", it would get very annoying very fast. And as the limit was recently raised to 20 people (thanks Captainnana!) it would be even worse.

    I have a bit of a hard time getting a hold of @slowpoke nowadays, but I have mentioned it.

    Is Slowpoke even still focusing on FTB? He seems very inactive...

    I'm sure there's plenty going on behind the scenes.
