Is there any effort underway to build chat into this community for members to connect and support one another?
That's is a good suggestion. We will need to investigate if our platform has a native engine, rather than using something plugged in like IRC.. Stay tuned.
Hey David, there isn't a chat "box" as such, but you can send a message to another user directly (similar to email). Either hover over the person's name, and click Message, or go to their profile and click on the Message button.
You can also Follow a person, to see what they are up to.
