    Default WhiteBlaze webchat

    Hi,

    This is just me wondering if anyone has ever suggested to the mods of this forum that a realtime chat be introduced to the site, hosted by Userplane or something.

    Anyway, it was just a thought. The amount of people who come here and post, i reckon it would be popular. It could even have discussion specific subrooms. Ok, i'm getting carried away now.

    Anyone else have an opinion about a realtime chat on Whiteblaze?

    Cheers

    Thanks, i'll nip over to facebook right now .......

    I guess there is a slim chance that a Whiteblaze chat room would make people less inclined to post in the forums. Still, it's not like you'd HAVE to go there. I know this isn't a social networking site, but chatting to like minded people might be fun.....might it not?

    Cheers

    They were right about Gore Tex.

    Yes. Bad idea then. Bad idea now. PLENTY of alternatives without hogging resources and precious manpower here.
