i think the chat room is a great idea but it seems no one is useing it.. if there was a way to show maybe on the screen somewhere if there were people chatting, like a little light bulb. i would drop in if i knew someone was there. or maybe when one signs on to check out the posts he or she can check a box that would show others there around if folks want to talk. i don't know if these make sense just trying to think of a way to get more use out of the chat room, it seems people are always around but don't sign in to chat cause its generally emtpy and who wants to wait around for someone to show. just thought. thanks..
