Why dont ask.com make a chatting site because that would probably make this website way more poplar?

It wouldn't be ask.com...it would be chat.com I guess.

Yes I agree.
Let's chat.
But I think they're should be a limit to what you say.
Or what personal info you can share.
Kind like it is now....

Phlorence_602
That's just there, so the users can be more helpful.
Report as
Heh
Report as
How is voting fun , helpful ?
Report as
It's not.
Report as
Agreed ^
Report as
Maybe there should be a " useless "
Button - that would be " helpful"
Report as
True.
Report as
Phlorence_602
The fun button is there because maybe someone answers a question, and the person, says something funny, but not actually answering the question, just something funny.
The person who asked the question is obliged to click "fun"
Even though not everyone does that.
So, the users are also obliged to give the correct answer or an opinion to the question asked.
That's why I said, it's there, to make the users become more helpful, THAN funny.

There are lots of chat sites and social networks that cater to that. If that is what you are looking for go to one of them instead of trying to change a site that has never been designed to chat.

Two separate "communities" wouldn't be a bad idea...

With followers - sounds good !

If it could be set up as a side by side yet totally separate "Community" could work....maybe.... Have to think on that some...

Maybe, but actually it's easy to find someone if your trying to chat with them, just google their user name and after that put ASK.com it brings up there last question they answered.
Report as
Have to try that one; and yeah, after thinking about it, The two" Communities" idea would change the character of the site too much, blurr the lines so to say...
Like it now for how it works , even with the occasional frustration, but that in itself is also part of its " workin"!:-).
Report as
Yep, you can pretty much say what you want to each other, as long as your not bad while doing it, or saying obscene stuff!!! ;)
Report as
No problem there.. Not very good at obscenity anyway! Lol!
Just think it!! Ha,ha...

@Witt, that's too funny, I know exactly what you mean, we can always have our thoughts right?? Ha!

I like ask.com the way it is now. And ask.com doesn't need to be another facebook or twitter.
