There's been a lot of attention paid to the chat room in recent weeks, and a lot of work put into it as well (Thank you, Emily and RopeFiend.).  And still it sits empty most of the time.

I don't think that this is for a lack of interest, either.  On more than one occasion, as I have been reading the posts late at night, I have seen that there was some poor, solitary soul pining away in the chat room alone.

So I said to myself, "Self, why isn't there a thread where people can try to set up a chat for a time when they know they will most likely be online?"

And I replied to myself, "Well, there probably is a thread like that somewhere."

"Have you seen one?"

"No.  I just sort of assumed that there must be one."

"Well, you know what we say about assumptions."

"Mother of all fuck ups?"

"That's right."

"So what do we do about it?"

"Well, start a thread, of course."

"Oh.  Okay."

For example:

I think it likely that I will be online Sunday night (3-2-08), probably around 21:00 (9pm) Eastern Standard Time.  If I happen to see that someone is in the chat room about that time, I will almost certainly stop in to say hello.

Others who are online at other times could, and who may be inclined to use the chat room, could post info on when they expect to be around, and interested parties could try to meet up with them at those times.  The more people who post about their availability, the more likely that the chat room will finally see some regular use.

And I'm still trying to find (and fix) whatever got buggered with the "Who's in Chat" mod when I updated the video embed thingie.  You'll have an easier time when you can see someone's already there.

I may try to uninstall it and re-install it, but I need to do Yet Another backup of the source files 'cos it's buried somewhere in there... well, and I don't want to change any of the system files while folks are ON the forum!  It'd be rude, particularly if I take the forum down for a bit.  Best-guess ETA for the fix is Thursday or Friday.

OK, it looks like I found why the Who's In Chat disappeared, and it's fixed again.  That ought to make life a bit easier for the folks that want to use Chat... you can immediately see that someone's there from the board index.

The top menu bar will show the number of people in Chat.  Your 'Personal Menu' at the top will show names, as will the 'Users Online' section at the bottom of the board index.

New to this page, when I saw that chat was available here I thought it was great. Thanks for thinking about the feature, looking forward to chatting with other members in the future.

Using chat is a wonderful way to network and make friends, which is never a bad thing.  Also, with the availability to make private rooms some very nice, nasty things can go on.  We have always been very fond of chats.  Hope to see you there!

 Cheesy I agree entirely with everything written on here, and major kudos and respect for the Admin' in thinking of a system that allows people to see who's actually online!
Damned good idea about placing when you'll be available and online although being in the UK the time difference can cause problems at times  huh
Hope to meet some of you once I figure it all out, I may be on tonight from 21:00 that's UK time sorry.

I obviously haven't been paying much attention to things on the site yet, I didn't even know there was a chat Tongue Especially on days like today I'd love to chat it up with a few peoples *thumbs up* I'm usually around from about 10am-2pm EST XD

I used to go in the chat room a lot, like, when I wanted to be alone. I knew that no one was going to molest, um, I mean BOTHER me. So now, I don't go there so much...

Love,

Jamie

I've been disappointed with chat.  Just for kicks, I'll check to see whose on (sometimes as many as 10 members) and then sign into CHAT1 or CHAT2 and wait.  I've only been joined in chat twice and one time it was good ol' Swashbuckler.
