Also a new button in the top navigation.
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.

When would primetime be?
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.
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.thePeck wrote:What about timestamps also on the posts, so we know how old they are?
