Live chat forum...looking for opinions

Postby JayD » Wed Jul 09, 2014 12:18 pm

Hi Folks,
I hope this post finds all members in good health, as all are probably aware I have been re organising and tidying up our forum. I have also been investigating new ways to make this forum better...much better. Do you think a live chat forum would be an asset for us? it would give you the chance to talk to members around the world to discuss ideas and generally have a laugh together...let me know what you think? :handgestures-thumbupright:

I am not sure what a "live chat forum" is. If someone is on line it sort of is that IMHO.

Do you mean like those help chat boxes that open for technical advise? I really see no difference.

You are doing on hell of a clean up here tho... I admire the efforts.

I may need to be "put down" soon.

IS it costly JayD? I am on MT's on a daily basis used to go to AD's some but not may people there...

It can be a fun thing depending on the crowd and topic of the conversation...

As far as I am aware it is a free program once we see enough support for this it may go ahead... :handgestures-thumbupright: topic of conversation can be what ever the folks want to talk about.

Sounds positive Jay.

And please excuse my technical ignorance if the following question is a silly one :roll:


Is there the potential for live chat to be farked with by clowns who wish to cause trouble, and is this easily monitored?

Unfortunately there will allways be clowns however chat will subject to our normal rules of conduct, hopefully we are mature enough to be respectfull of others opions.

Sounds like a great idea. May be different rooms for different subjects. Sone chat rooms jave "report" buttons for the onrs who get out of hand.

I haven't chimed in on this...but in general I support the idea of live chat, but it is up to the members and JayD.

I go to the chat on EG's forum every once and a while but can say everytime I visit seems like the same guys on. Seems to be working for the ones that use it.
I started my liquid diet and so far it seems to be working! I've already lost two days.
