Online chat

Hi Paul

Not sure if you have thought about setting up a chat room for members to chat to each other online?

Cheers

Steve

Hi Paul,

No idea if this would be any use, but as you know a lot more about php than I do, I'm sure you'll find it interesting. http://www.gagalive.com/live/livechatexamplephpbb3

I hacked in a version of PHPfreeChat. Hope you like it - top menu under the 'ear' of Rainwear in the site logo.

Hi Paul, now need to let everyone know it's up and running. Maybe post it on every board topic.

The chatroom works OK, although there was no one there at the time - I could see conversation from a (short) chat earlier though.

What about organising regular chat time/days along with including time zones so there's no confusion?

I would have one/two big regular chats every week but if people want to talk every day, that would be no problem either

I think its great Paul has responded so positively and the chatroom works well, apart from Ive never found anyone in there, Ive seen people have been but never aqctualy been there at the same time :(

To be fair Ive found this with nearly every chat room Ive been in, as others have said we need to organise ourselves so Paul's efforts havent been wasted!

I seem to remember that the lovely Patty hosted her chat room at 10:00 pm on a Sunday night, even then it wasnt well populated and didnt take off

Im up for it if we can organise ourselves

If you have any suggestions for the site please feel free to let me know and I will do my best to implement them for you.
This is your rainwear forum and since new site domain is "rainwear central" I will gladly make it better where I can.

Hi Paul, it would be good if we could have some way of knowing if the chat room was active. Every time I come to this site I look to see how many registered users and guests are on. If there are/is a registered user, except the likes of Google etc, then I log on and go to the chat room. Todate I have never met someone in it.
