    It's kinda like that now .. but not real time. The good thing about forums is that it can be 2PM or 2AM and you can still join in.

    - XTC206 -

    PS: What is the record number for people on the site at once ? (i've read it somewhere) ... Could we have an AussieFrog online get together (cruise)? As many members as possible all at the same time .. GibGib sets a date/time (probably around 10PM EST - 8PM WST) and everyone signs on and posts a single message to a particular thread (no doubling up guys).

    Sounds like a wacky thing to do ! mallet
    You're not fooling everyone, or did you forget? .......

    dantheman,

    We've tried IRC before(from memory we used the Austnet network previously) <a href="http://www.austnet.org" target="_blank">http://www.austnet.org</a> for info

    gibgib also installed a chat program on the Aussiefrogs web server and there was a link just below the aussiefrogs logo at the top left of the page.

    Unfortunately no one was ever in there at the same time

    We can always try again though

    Chat didn't work on Aussiefrogs for many reasons:

    1/Some people are REALLY slow typists
    2/We all want to talk about completely different things at the same time
    3/There is a large spread of age and interests and those that are younger than some of the rest of us know all the abbreviations that the rest of us spend half the night sorting out. Some of us still type in that old language called English deal
    4/People spent too much time hitting each other with various forms of aquatic life roll_lau
    5/It's bloody hard to get into a chat room psyche when you have no idea who or what you are talking with or about.

    Mind you, if others want to try it go for your life. Just explaining why I reckon it didn't work last time.

    mates.... i have no idea how to start a chat room but if someone does know then go ahead. we know why it would not work before so this time we can change that and tell every one how it works?

    I think that's a sign of the times ... you have to be online on a regular basis for chat rooms to work (or at least a regular time) - where as I've posted to AussieFrogs just about anytime of day or night.

    You can put it to gibgib

    He's set up one of those before. It was an abysmal failure. The link to the chat room was under the Aussiefrogs logo at the top of the screen.

    I think the general concesus last time was if we had a chat room, it made the forums basically redundant.

    P.S. One finger typists have problems keeping in time with the subject; by the time it's posted, the subject had changed... mallet mallet cry
    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    <a href="http://www.aussiefrogs.com/cgi-bin/chat/chat.cgi" target="_blank">http://www.aussiefrogs.com/cgi-bin/chat/chat.cgi</a>

    You need to register separately.

    We had this running about a year ago & I never saw another soul in there when I was

    If there's interest I'll link to it from the top menu bar.

    Might work if it had a link from the menu bar. 2_cents
    I've never used a chat room in my life, but I might if there was a Pug one. I did a search for Pug chat rooms the other day, and there was only one about the WRC.
