Question

Evolving Forums ? move towards video included ?


Today we have instant messaging with video conferencing and so on ... makes it better to see the other and certainly reduces misunderstandings.

I wonder how long it will be before forums will adopt an online video function - so when in a thread with others - you can see the person you may be replying to ?

I know its more than just a single face issue ... but given the stupid arguments that forums often have - and most are due to bad wording / ego / poor understanding of what other person writes or replies ... a face in the 'discussion' would likely remove vast majority of those 'incidents'.

Our club has a Group listing on SKYPE ... and there we have chats and sometimes we have some serious comments - but instead of as would happen on a forum where it would most likely upset someone - there it just gets sorted and no-ones upset.

It would be a game changer but with thousands of members not an easy one to sort ... maybe person can only see those who are on Friends List ... or an invitation system when reading a thread ?

Wonder if it will ever happen ?
