I was just wondering.

Why don't more members use the Chat rooms provided?

I very much enjoy the room experience where I can chat with multiple ATS friends in real time, while posting comments on threads.

Perhaps members don't know it exists?

There are members online for sometime and we do have a nice chat. And why did you post this here? Now I have a worry that SO might close the chat application. And we "chatters" will have no where to go.

Come on Peacejet,

You know I LOVE the chat app, I just find it kind of barren, I wish there was more emphasis placed on it.

So we could enjoy it to the full extent. I mean really have you ever seen any room but Skeptic's have members talking?

I know I haven't.

There are some hours of the day when chat is completely empty.

It's weird.

I know, the advent of the mutter box has reduced traffic inflow there. Maybe an ad for chat will help in baiting more members there.

Yes, I agree, chat is empty for 3/4 of the day. Surely, it is a conspiracy!

I wish I could answer that question.

The rooms used to hold only 20 people and we'd often have 15+ in there. On occasion we'd actually hit the 20.

When our security software required us to upgrade chat clients we took the next step up and got a chat client with a 50 user per room maximum.

Unfortunately nobody came...

Most of us are still puzzled as to why.

I would say that the reason is that most of the members dont know that chat exists. So, maybe some flashy banner for chat will lure in more people.

It happens in waves DJ
There are times there is more
There are times there is less

Maybe if you did an thread announcement on chat it would get utilized more.

Maybe if we had one of the rooms less strict with a disclaimer of sorts it
would allow for a "free'er environment for people to ENJOY a real time RANT as it were.

Although I ENJOY the way it is now,others may not be able to adhere to the
T&C as well and fear banning from not only chat,but the board as well.

Chat is fun, all the cool kids are doing it. You should do it too.

Haha, yes and ofcourse we are the cool kids.

I mean where else would they go but the chat room?

Thanks for bringing it to everybody's attention folks, we should be pushing this applet a little more.

I saw the button for it yesterday actually. I will stay away though because once I start on those things I cant get away
I love it too much and find hours have gone by, maybe Im addicted I think I may be!! so for me chat is a no go LOL

Maybe someone can offer me chat addiction counselling but until that day I must stay away

I'd love to sue the chat - but each time I go in I get a error or the chat box freezes (I just tried again)...



Would be great - if it worked for me...

Get yourself an egg-timer.
When it dings - you're out.


I used to use it a long time ago (when chat first started) - in *Beseen Chat*.
So funny - they used to show IP's in the *room* lol.

I still miss that place...

What is the error that is showing up?

Have you installed flash in your computer. The application is based on flash.
