    I think this site could benifit from having a chat room Like the lounge at Slawterhouse It would give us more freedom to express our thoughts and opinions and you get a faster reply to your posts!

    Brett, the creator and head dude here, started this topic below about the possibility of a chat room. As you can see, people gave their opinions and it was ultimately rejected. But, as I said in Main, nothing is written in stone here, and knowing Brett I'm positive it's something he will continue to consider as he continually tries to make the site better and better. Having said that, Brett just got married and won't be back from his honeymoon for a couple of weeks, so nothing will even be looked at until then.

    Yup, the general consensus was a chat room would only detract from the conversations on the message board.

    But if you're adamant, when Brett gets back feel free to harass him.

    I brought this up a long time ago. I still think a chatroom would add to this site. Many sites have both and I dont see how it conflicts with messageboards. It would help stop so many topics on the same subject. As with anything the people against it made their voices loud and clear and those for it were quieter. I think if Brett made it a poll question he would see different results. Who knows some of the lurkers might come out of the woodwork and chat instead of constantly reading the same people posting all the time.

    i agree lired. i don't think it would take away from a messageboard. i think he should give it a trial at least. links is the innovators-everyone's got messageboards but no chats.

    I'd be a fan of scheduled chats. Like though AOL IM or something.

    This is exactly why Brett added the AOL IM option to the links, along with ICQ, and Yahoo.

    There's no need for a chatroom on the forums, IMO.

    Ditto to what my esteemed colleagues said.

    Brett gave us tools to make our own chat without having to modify the board too much. Almost everyone has one or the other program - may as well put them to use.

    Who other than the super regulars in here are going to know about that? Ive been in here almost from the beginning and I didnt know that. Its kind of a apain to set those up. Who else on this board even knows this is being discussed because its in Feedback which is hardly ever looked at. I think it really limits who you get to chat with and when too. ICQ always messed up my browser. I just dont like it. I hope Brad continues with his promise of a chatroom on Pleasure Dome.

    Well, I know that Brett is never close minded when it comes to this site. He asked us a month ago if we would use a chat room because he wanted to put one in for the people. The people spoke and it was obvious that it wasn't something that the people wanted. Maybe we could make it a poll question next month to be fair(BTW, if you live in Florida, please read the poll carefully. We always consider what the users want. If more people want it than don't, I can guarentee Brett would set one up.

    It's not Brett's fault that he placed the topic in the right forum.

    We all have to check in at the Feedback and Questions forum and the Announcements forum from time to time.

    The matter was public, and only a couple of people wanted it.

    We have the AOL IM, Yahoo, and ICQ options, so that should settle things.

    I have ICQ, but I almost never use it anymore. That's why I never posted my number.

    AOL IM is what I mainly use. It's simple to download and install.

    You shouldn't have any problems doing so.
