    Hi guys, I am currently trying to develop a "web community" as a way of keeping in touch with old frends i dont get to see much anymore, currently this site is little more than a few forums hosted on EZboard (which is very cool btw)

    however i am looking to expand this site now and broaden the userbase. in order to do this i am adding more features to the site (only simple things such as a photo album and a few other novelties), however in order to achieve a bit of true community spirit i want to allow visitors to interact with each other more in real-time. ideally by use of some kind of real-time userlist+chat window on the site.

    i do have a little experience of perl/cgi programming but surely there is a simpler way of achieving this? i had a look at addfreestats.com which is almost what i want (gives the number of users currently on the site) but i would like something the community can use to interact with each other.

    any suggestions?

    vBulletin can be used to achieve this. Everything you need is available in one form or another. Someone has even wrote a EZBoard import hack so you can import your posts. Check out vBulletin.com and look around.
