Chatroom Added

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Also a new button in the top navigation.
Nice. It will be an interesting experiment. But, on the other hand, if people are chatting then they are not necessarily posting in the forum as much as they normally might...which may make the numbers of new forum posts drop. We'll see how long it takes for trolls to emerge in the chatroom.

Agreed. It was my experience that Chat-rooms are the kiss of death for a forum. Some "Serious" forums like Chat Rooms as a way of removing banter from their more substantive threads, but seeing as this is a more socially oriented forum a chat-room becomes almost a conflict of interest. If the feature starts to become popular, they will need to keep a close eye on it.

I can say that it works. Perhaps a schedule would be useful. Pretty dead now.

When would primetime be?

Can be pretty lonely in the chat room at times.

Any chance of letting on-line members see that there are others in the chat room?
Maybe something like a green light next to the Chat menu.
Or a pop-up showing that there are currently 'X' number of members in the chat room, or something.

I've dropped in a couple of times during today, and there was no-one there. Had an interesting session with Soi Dog last night. I learned a lot.

Yeah, I've been thinking this over today some as I saw the "no one's here" comments in there. Not yet sure of a good solution to it really.

What about timestamps also on the posts, so we know how old they are?

LOL! We spent time bullying OD in beta testing the other night until he took the timestamps off, as they used to much territory which in turn made the chat window scroll too quickly.

The last time I was in a chatroom I met a girl and within minutes we were having cybersex.

Hey, let's just say, we just clicked.
