    I was thinking. "Maybe" The webmaster could open up the chat to everyone for ONE hour/day. That way people can get a look at what it has to offer. Just a thought. If not that, Maybe a few screenshots?

    And no this is not another "Free chat please" post. I DO understand bandwidth is not cheap.

    Thanks

    Another good idea might be paying $25 /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif...

    But seriously, folks, I just flew in from Boston and MAN are my arms sore...

    Really... Maybe it would be a good idea to put up screenshots... I can't see opening it to the public for an hour being possible... /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    The problem wtih doing this- now it's controlled by our forum username/password- if it was to be opened up- I would think it would require Steve to change the settings twice a day- once when he made the free for all- and once when he changed it back- that's more work than anyone should be required to do.

    Send in the $25 and use it as much as you want, thats a perk of being a member..

    Opening it up for an hour would be a nightmare as far as codeing goes (for me anyway) but if someone wants to post screen shots that is fine with me.

    bobsurf, Not as self explanitory as you may think. Could be a Java chat, HTML, CGI/PERL, or IRC.

    Just forget I mentioned the idea.

    i think it'd be tight if we got a chat room like www.gametz.com has. lots of l337 features.... though it doesnt have the URL list, which is super-handy. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
