Oh yes, what about a crafts section? I'm pretty fond of making my own tools, talismans and pagan related arts and crafts. Will be great to exchange how-tos and show off what the stuff we make.

A chat room would be interesting... everything else here seems to have been done already! It is a great place - thank you to the whole team for what must be a lot of work.

i was on another site where they had online covens (i guess they were chat rooms that had a specific number of members, their own passwords in order to enter the chat room, and times to meet, etc.). i belonged to one of the covens and really enjoyed the interaction. i suppose the groups wouldn't have to be "covens" per se. they could be groups with certain criteria for membership that meet and chat in their own chat room.
i'm not sure how complicated that is to set up, but it was fun and i miss it. i could let you know the site i'm talking about so you can take a look, if you like.

Thanks OS, I would like that... but probably will not visit there until after my exam on Monday (!).

Also in another thread, Petrus4 mentioned this:

Re: Chatroom or Chat Utility
I'm there right now. #earthsongforums, on the Undernet IRC network. Come and chat.

A general and/or private chat facility would be nice, but the pop up on new private message works quite well. IRC is too much of a hassle to be an effective forum chat facility. SOMEONE has to be able to act as op, and that requires some degree of dedication and technical skill.

For it to be effective, it needs to be integrated into the forum software. Since the software is php base, it would seem feasible. I guess the real question is it worth the effort? Would it really get used? It would be a ton of work and administration if it didn't!!!
