    Default White Blaze Chat

    Would anyone else have any interest in a live chat section of whiteblaze?

    chat on whiteblaze, bad idea, do ya read the political threads? (which for all the guest reading whiteblaze, if you join there are some other forum sections that you can subscribe to, not to mention you can use the 'new post' button, and not have to read through everything.)

    Maybe not a "bad" idea... Maybe set a time/date for chat. "Sundays @ 7" or whatever time/date... OR, if need be... "political chat, Tuesdays @6" "Thru hiking Mondays @9pm" "gear talk Fridays @2pm"

    I think it's a great idea.

    Count me in. Just announce the day(s) of the week and time(s).

    Ok I put a chat room on my site so we can see how it will work out. It is not fancy but it will allow us to test the idea. If it works out then we might be able to convince Attrol to put one up. Just click the link in my sig then the chat room link.

    TRH, I think it might be fun, and I hope you're not hurt by the political threads, I enjoy your stuff and look forward to a long future of haranguing with you.

    I had put up a chat room on my site so we could try it before we attempted to convince Attrol to put one up. But since there were no users I took it back down. If we could get some people to use it I would be willing to put it back up on a trial basis.

    Shakey - you'll probably want to schedule a day/time for folks to show up. And be sure to specify which time zone...

    But like Alligator said, some folks on WB may not know how to relate to other humans in real time...

    The "old" Trailplace.com website had live chat. It really did get out of hand at times. Worst of all, Wingfoot would get angry at some of the chat and shut the entire site down.

    Also ...it would take a pretty fast server to handle all the traffic. My guess is that the rate/volume of live chat traffic would bog Whitblaze down and even cause it to lock up at times.
