actually, there IS a sort of chat 'feature'. look in your profile. the ICQ # is your member number after joining here: http://www.icq.com/
after you download/install and register (all free), then enter your ICQ number into your FA profile.
by clicking on someone's ICQ #, it will invite a chat. If enough people use it, then I'm sure someone would volunteer to set up a general FA chat room in ICQ. Then create a forum sticky with the link to that room.
