I allowed yet another chat set up as shown on the 4th post of this page. Even though I knew from past experience that chats are not forum building or last long. That one was like the 4th chat "experience/attempt" we've had here in our 10 year history. It, like the others all failed. I'm not about the try to resurrect a dead horse one more time. It'* D E A D.
Our Forum runs on Premium software and 1st class hosting servers. Want to keep in touch with Forum members? Start a thread in the Lounge or Chat. Replies are in real time and just as fast as any chat server,..... without the quirkiness of most of their flash based software which is so bandwidth dependent on how many "chats" are being hosted/used by that chat server.
