    Chat feature

    Is there any chance we could get a chat feature added?????

    I usually PM, but it fills up fast and isn't as easy as it would be to IM someone.

    Re: Chat feature

    I had a nice chat feature last year but it never really got used so I quit updating it and took it down. I'm looking at trying to get a new Chat/IM feature in place where you can either chat or just send IM's back and forth similar to PM's but quicker and without reloading a page if you're already online.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.

    Re: Chat feature

    There was a chat feature? When did that get taken down? The chat would be better for gamedays than the 700 post threads we get.

    Re: Chat feature

    I can get something in place but it won't be by Saturday. It was odd before, people still posted in the long threads - I think it was just so they could reference things later on. Anyways, I'll get something in place. Thanks for the feedback!

    And there were 3-4 people in it tops during a game. Mostly because people didn't know it existed.

    Re: Chat feature

    If I recall, it was kinda slow. I think people will prefer the threads better, easier to keep up, etc.

    Chat would be cool for gameday info, that is about all I can see myself using it for.

    Re: Chat feature

    When I frequented CR, we used the chat feature constantly during basketball games. There would be 50+ people on during any given session. And everyone loved it -way better than threads. In fact, so many did use it that it got a little cluttered, so being able to separate rooms might be nice as well. A general room and invite only?

    But speed is the key. And it was fast.
