The chat box is one of the more unique features of Voat so I thought we could take advantage, especially for big events like the draft (too late for today) and games! Unfortunately, it's difficult to move, resize, or generally make more prominent so the solution was to create a new subverse called v/avschat. Now having the chat in a separate tab isn't particularly useful so if you copy and paste the text below straight into your browser's web address bar, it will pop open a nice small chat window. Just be sure to bookmark it!
The subverse code actually makes the chat look better when bigger but I feel the smaller size lends to more practicality. Feel free to resize the window to your preferences by changing the width and height numbers.
EDIT: I'm having difficulty getting consistent results when pasting that into different browsers' web address bar so the best and sure fire way is just to add it as a bookmark separately. I've tested with success in Chrome, Firefox, and IE.
EDIT 2: v/avschat and v/hockeychat will be back up later tonight (2015_07_02)
EDIT 3: Chat is disabled site-wide :(
