Scheduled Maintenance Tonight 7/29
« on: July 29, 2011, 08:26:55 PM »
The board will be down briefly around 11 PM EDT as we move the site to a faster server.

Thanks for your patience. It should not take very long.

We have seen the requests for a chat feature and will look into it as well.

The chat feature would be cool once we get this going full speed.

One question though...if people are chatting, then that means they're not posting, right?

I guess the more features the better, and this would just be like a faster PM maybe.

Exactly.

It helps too when you are engaged in a debate and want to let someone on your side know a factoid etc.

Exactly.

"Exactly" to the latter and not to the former, right?  ;D

Why not just post that in the thread? Do you want to make it seem like the other person thought of it all by himself? :)

It's all good by me, I'm sure I'll try it out. For now I kind of post personal messages in threads when maybe I shouldn't be doing it.

Yes.

Well I don't know. I've only seen this feature on one forum before but I thought it was cool. It's pointless right now but when we get more members it will be handy. You'll see.

It is kind of pointless right now but we should be prepared, there'll be a huge influx of immigrants any day now  ;D

There won't be any need for that. They'll make no effort to use or learn English  ;D
