    It used to get used for regular weekly evening meetings or for quizzes but I don't know if anyone's been on chat for ages. There were also some problems with it throwing people out. I don't know if that's been solved now.

    Ah, no you don't. That's another glitch in the system. It used to make me paranoid until I found out.

    There's a glitch on the chat room. It always says someone has just left the room when they have actually left hours or days before! I'm sure it's designed to keep us paranoid!

    As Helen has said, we do have a glitch with live chat, and it could be costly to rectify it. The trouble is is that chat tends to go
    in fits and starts.I used to hold welcome nights for new members on Mondays, and there were quizzes and general chats on Thursdays. You could also let other members know when you would be in there on the forum Eventually people dropped out until there was nobody coming in at all.
    Summer months were always quiet with holidays, or people outdoors having bbq's etc. Winter nights tended to be busy.
    I'm afraid it is back to the old saying, use it or lose it. If its empty all the time, people will eventually stop looking.
    You can still use it, although it is a bit of a pain when it keeps saying you have left the room, or it freezes or boots you out.
    If you are planning on going in and giving it a go, let everyone know you will be there at a certain time and day.
