Logan just checked and it still seems to be broken.

I see the little chat box at the bottom of the screen, but even though it says that Logan has joined the chat...he's not online in the chat room.

I'll contact tech support again.

Thanks to those who dropped by to help test it for me.

It's a pretty cool tool! 

I'll keep myself logged in, but will be packing my bags so I may not answer you quickly.

Rudy

The chat room has been around but apparently it didn't work until today (see first post above). Rudy, some guys and I tried it earlier and it works. The password is the same you use to log in (at least that's what I used and it worked; if it is not the case, Rudy will most likely let us know). 

The only difference with the forum is that the interaction takes place in real time unlike the forum where one reads and answers posts whenever you are online and the participants are not necessarily online at the same time.

Does anybody use this chat room still? I've popped in a few times but it seems fairly empty, but maybe I'm just getting on at the wrong times? I'll be stopping in there if anyone wants to chat!

I'm not a "chat" fan but I did have brief natter with someone(!!) a couple of years ago, so it hasn't always been  acting the goat.

Hi GregB, it’s not a feature that is used very often. I think that is a great function of the forum and I stop in there now and again. I’ll be sure to go that more consistently.

I agree it is a great function but you have to be on together obviously in order to chat with someone.  

What I envision is the threads themselves serving like a "chat" function with back-and-forth discussion.  We know that many here are on opposite ends of the earth and might not see a post until hours later but they can still contribute.  

I was looking for a topic the other day and ran across several threads that had less than a half-dozen posts.  I think that is a shame.  Just as magicians are encouraged to not stop thinking too soon I believe many topics die out way too soon.  

Maybe some don't post because they haven't fully fleshed out their thoughts or they believe they have little to contribute.  First, don't wait until you've go the perfect response.  You might say something that triggers more and different thoughts.  And as far as a contribution, even agreeing with something said is a contribution.  Sometimes there is a great point made and the value is drowned out by crickets.

These issues are common on all websites, magic or not.
