Chat Anyone?
Permalink Closed


Hello!

In case you have not noticed, we do have a "chatbox" located on the far right of our forum options. When two or more people are logged in, it may be beneficial for all to check out this option to chat, and get help/advice in "Real Time"!

Since we have had an increase in membership, and member traffic in recent weeks, this may be the best time to try this great feature!

Frank

Thanks Frank. I haven't used that before, but with the time difference, every time I'm on, noone else isno

smile I might have to time it right one day. I'm pretty good at knowing the time difference from Australia to the USA, but don't know which time zone you're in.

As most members are in the continent of North America, and there are a few in Europe as well, it may be beneficial to know which time zonethe regular contributors are inso the rest of us can time it better.

I know that down in this part of the world there are only 3 Aussies and 1 New Zealander on the register, so if you're on in the evening, it will be late morning or early afternoon here.

Gerard,

Sounds great! I'm in New Jersey (East Coast), so that is Eastern Time.
Right now it is 12:15PM. I hope that helps. I am on late many times, and I have seen
you on at the same time! We'll try it out sometime!

Frank

I was on the other night with two additional members.
Unfortunately, no one else thought to check the chatroom!

Other forums are begging for this feature (You know which one I'm talking about!), while this forum has it built right into the package! If you are on here with another member
(Check the bottom of the main page to see who is logged in), then you can chat live with that person! Just another great way to discuss pens, or whatever!!

Click on the "chatbox" option on the upper right of the options bar!

Frank

Here is the room we used last night. The chat room is pretty good IMHO. Cam and mic supported, you can direct tweet/twitter your chat directly to twitter & other stuff. Stop in and check it out.

Ok what I need from everyone that's interested in a regular chat night to list what you think would be the best day and time. Frank & I thing a mid week evening night would probably work best.

PS: Jar, sorry i couldn't stay long last night, I got roped into helping/read that as nearly doing, the young'uns homework.

See everyone in the chat

There were five members on at the same time yesterday (myself included)!
Yet, no one else checked the bottom of the page!

Do not forget about this great feature! No other FP Forum has it!
When you are here, scroll to the bottom to see who is on, who the latest contributor toTheCommunity is, and to use the "Live Chat" feature!

The Chat Box has really been busy the past couple of days!

Yesterday, there were four of us on-line at the same time talking everything from cars, knives, and PENS!
This feature is unique to our site, so take advantage of it!

When you are logged on, scroll down to the bottom of the page, see who else is on and say "Hello"!

I think you have to turn it on in your user settings for it to show all the time at the bottom. You should still be able to get to it from the menu, though.

Given the increase in member traffic lately, I figured it was a good time to resurrect an old topic!

This is a great feature, and we are the only board that has it! (It cost more per month on the other boards- they use IPB (Invision). Here with Activeboard (Sparklit), it is built-in to the basic package! There are also other features here like the "Calendar" feature and the "Arcade" section to play games!!

YES, it is why we look different! People can explore the board, and see that it is quite easy to use! It is the fact that we are not on the same software that people seem confused at first on how to use the features available. But, it is the reason why we have fewer "reliabilty" issues!!
