Recently there was a request for a site-wide skype chat room, which wasn't possible because of Skype generally sucking. The solution to this is Slack.
Slack is basically like a collection of public and private chat rooms relative to one group of people — in this case, us! It supports a lot more cool features, including the possibility to add integrations for the Engine and other functionality found on Ripred.Net.
It's also accessible via a browser, to make it easier for people with laggier computers. It makes it easier to find all the people from the site, without having to add them as contacts, too. (Other features include displaying gifs and images in chat (rather than just linking them) and not getting your emoticons automatically turned into emoji!)
So: Please join us! Enter your email HERE and you'll receive an email invite within a few minutes! (if you don't, check your spam folder, then PM me^^)
