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!
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.
Is it OK to allow anonymous guests in the Chat Room? Not sure.
nice to see the chat room is back up running ..hope it lasts ,, I enjoy talking to other folks while listening to what i can ,,...
does anyone know danita murray? she was looking for me but didn't leave a number!
yup, me too... i thought they just were keeping me out...
I liked it too even though everytime I went there It was an empty house! Keep it going!
when I enter chatroom...The page you requested does not exist. For your convenience, a search was performed using the query chatrooms chat 9.
I am having trouble finding a link to subscribe to the almanac. Any help is much appreciated.
Nothing left to do but Smile, Smile, Smile.
