Are you kidding? Chat ROCKS!!! I get more goss in there than anywhere else.


You just aren't showing up at the right time I guess.

(Or maybe you've made everyone so mad they're all ignoring you)

Not any convo happening

Every time I go in there, there's maybe 5 people max

and hardly anybody is typing - methinks they just opened the window and forgot about it.

I'm sorry that "Chat" hasn't worked out for you but that isn't any reason to start calling for Chat to have it's plug pulled.

The Chat on ATS has been a lot of fun. I've met quite a few people and made a number of friends through Chat. Sure, there are times when it does get rather quiet. This probably is due to the many different time zones that are covered and, therefore, there are peak times. For the most part, however, one doesn't have to wait long for someone to drop in. Try logging into chat at different times throughout your day. It might help.

It took me a fair while to try out chat (over 12 months actually, im a scaredy cat). And to be honest i prefer it when theres only 5 or so in there, its easier to follow the convo, or maybe im just slow.


I pop in there every day now even if its just for a few minutes to say g'day.
Ive met some other members i call my friends in there who i may not have crossed paths with otherwise.
I think its great, and it'll be better once i get my head around all the shorthand stuff, that messes with my head sometimes.


Btw i just went to see who was in there 5 minutes ago. One.

You're rubbish!

There are people that are on. They just don't want to talk to you.

Go there right now.................

I can't even keep up with the messages running by, and it's moving too fast for me to even make a meaningful contribution.

If the chat was IRC i might actually join but since it isnt and well, the fact that it apparently uses some sort of flash that i don't have so cant use anyway, well you get the idea.

i'd like to chat and say what's up every once in a while but I'm not able to log in for some reason

Your flash probably needs updating then TP. I've had two occasions I couldn't get in, and after upgrading flash, it worked fine.

If that doesn't work, send a message via complaints/suggestions.

Their no need to call for chat to be pulled or change to irc I'm from the uk aswell and have had no problem talking to other members from UK/US or else place as a matter. It's all down to times somone is always around in chat if not watching people floating in or out.

If it wasn't for chat I would have never meet such a great bunch of people with some clever and crazy ideas to talk about or just have a plain good ole chit chat lol. It's also a place to get to know the people who respond to your topics on ATS on all of it's levels it has to offer.

If your chat is not working their is a upgrade your flash at the bottom of the window and make sure you log the right name and password you where given to get in.

it's a shame more people don't use it really


Peace SE7en

I'm with all my chat room friends on this one!
I've met some great people in there, but every once in a while I have a day or two when I can't make it into chat in the evening, OMG...I get to missing my wonderful chat room friends something awful
If chat ever dies, I'll be very sad.

See you in chat

Everyone stop reading this thread right now..........

Go log-on to "Chat" and the place will be full of members in no time.



But if all else fails:

Tell a friend about ATS. When they make the required number of posts you can chat with someone you know.

You can also keep the chat window minimized while you surf ATS, then when you hear someone come into the room, go chat. Others will join........



I don't go there very often, but I think it's an important part of ATS.

I have never been in, probably because deep down I think no-one would want to talk to me, (how sad and pathetic does that make me sound:shk: ).

Even so, doesn't mean that I think it should be pulled, especially if other members enjoy going there.

Bud, simply don't go in mate, anyway, you do enough gassing on the boards. LOL.

Are you serious?! Chat works fine, and should not be "put out of its misery".

I have made some good friends on ats thanks to chat, and most likely would have not even seen them or spoke to them if it wasnt for it.

Yeah, at some times of the day no one is in chat, but ive rarely seen a night where at least 10 people are not on at the same time. Usally around 9pm est. and at that time also people from the UK are in chat.

I beg to differ.

After reading your scathing analysis of ATS chat last night I decided to finally try it out for myself.

Grabted that you have to deal with the issue of timezones and peoples personal schedules, I found some willing chatees, and struck up some nice conversation.

Getting rid of chat seems completely inane. When the rooms are full, i am sure that chat is crazy, but to diss the whole concept as a whole is misguided.

I'll definitely be on in the future...as my schedule permits
