Chatroom-Your Thoughts Please!
As you may have noticed, we've just implemented a much-requested chatroom. It is quite simple and has few fancy features, but for the moment we just want it to work!
Anyway, have at it, and post your thoughts, feature requests, effusive thanks to the tech team, etc., right here. Thanks!
the system keeps keeping me out
take me to the jailhouse
it's not! Just got a spectacular example of the mass exodus bug, only all the people bailing were Guests. Remains to be seen how that one's going to work out. But still, it kinda sorta works and it's good to have back.
Stuman, yes, this is one of the areas known to be a bit surreal. For those just joining us, if you enter a chat room and suddenly 50 people leave the room, IT IS NOT YOU! It is a weird software issue. We're looking into it. Thank you.

"your rain falls like crazy finger ..."
which one words are everywhere
until recentley i though you had to at least be a registerd member to have access to most of this site,, so ,,.i guise not,,... be careful what you say and who you speek to ,,,
I have a feeling this is a leftover fro the KPFA chat, but also I think it's worth letting it run a bit and see what happens. We can always turn it off later, I would guess.
I share cosmicbadger's concern for potential problems here, but have somewhat mixed emotions. We were always free to attempt to strike up random conversations in the lot or the show without identifying ourselves, and while the chatroom context is similar (to me,) it does lack the physical proximity/available security dimension of an in person encounter.
Perhaps a solution might be to require that a virtual token be delivered via email and re-presented to the site for anyone desiring to post in the chatroom anonymously. That would create some semblance of accountability at least. It's hard to imagine any possible problem caused by someone who merely wanted to eavesdrop, but not actively participate. It's not like there can be any assumption of privacy in what is effectively a public space.
Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.
