I wanted to post this, but didn't know where to... So here it is
I'm assuming with the lack of members online, and the error messages, as well as the fact that its April and "ATS 2010" is immanent that chat is
Yeah, I loved chat, we petitioned for its saving, to no avail, and now there are some of us left disappointed. I made many friends on chat, and felt
more included in ATS in general from being able to chat in real time with the members who lived on there as much as I did!
It also never failed to amaze me how everyone was speaking from different times of the day (easily amused, I know) but everyone was lovely, and we had
many-a-serious discussion, and also many not-so-serious talks. The people always cheered me up, and it was an easy place to share threads and talk
about our own experiences without having to write a paragraph on it, and then reply to many different members via threads.
Plus I was away at the weekend so I never got to say goodbye to my chat friends, or to chat itself, and I'm well gonna miss it!
This whole new idea better be as good as chat was, because I think it's important to have a place where members can talk in instant messaging, and
get to know others, share views, etc, especially on things you don't feel are thread-worthy.
So this is my tribute to the ATS chat service that I and others loved, as I felt it was fitting on it's departure. To the good times! The debates,
the laughs, the getting to know people!
Bye bye chat!
Actually... No! It's not goodbye! I'm picking up the campaign torch! We can still save this ship! We can't give up now!
Petition to save ATS chat... It's not over yet!
Go, go, go!!!!
