That was a very high priority. I've spent the last two weeks working on site speed by optimizing MySQL queries and tweaking MySQL and Apache settings. The site is much faster and the server has much less load now.

Unfortunately the ads aren't going to change.

The software I'm planning on using will have a video chat feature.

Yes, you can disable it. I too rarely make use of chat software.

I agree Daria. I think it would add a lot to SP for many people. I think, in certain scenarios, it would enable people to efficiently make plans and meet potential partners if there is a built-in chat feature on SP. Also, at least for me, it's much easier to get a decent "feel" for another person's personality by chatting with them than by reading posts in the forums or reading private messages.
