    Hi,
    As our site traffic continues to grow and attracts hundreds of web site owners daily, we decided to open up our message board forum and real-time chat. Members simply sign up and gain free access within seconds. And, we have set aside the time and resources to manage it all. Good idea or not?

    If properly used it can make for a very sticky site.

    SitePoint is a working example of this. Many people (myself included) visit the forums and chat much more than the actual content of the site.

    If you aren't attracting too much traffic then I would stay away from launching forums/chat because it would most likely be empty most of the time.
