  • CHAT room

    Would it be nice if we could have a general chit-chat thread, so that we can all get to know each other a bit better, and other people can join in with conversations? Would be nice to know more about people than just a name on a page

    Re: General chit-chat

    Nice idea Karen - it's been done before, followed by a 'Real' chat room (both before my time !) but it didn't seem to take off.

    No harm in giving it another go though Much better than drifting off topic on other threads

              I been on loads of sites ( in mobile phone WAP ) where there were chat rooms.. trouble is ( unless you got an admin in there all the time looking at what people post and ready to kick 'em off the site) you get all the weirdos cybering like mad and that puts off other members who casually drop in to see whats going on

                Yep there definitely was a chatroom on here many moons ago (I remember it well), but it sort of fizzled out because less and less people used it. But now that there are more members, I agree that it might be worth trying it again

                      CHAT room

                      I see the thread that was talking about a general chit-chat forum and also a chat room, has been closed.

                      What is the current situation regarding the latter? ...ie, a live chat room on DoYouRemember.

                      I understand previous attempts were not successful but now with more members, perhaps the time is ripe.

                      I use live chat rooms on other sites and haven't come across those rooms being used for any kind of nastiness. No one here seems like the kind that would abuse such a facility.

                      So. What about it?

                          Hi Marine Boy,
                          Just heard back from admin reguarding your question and the reply is as follows:-

                          The chat room was techincally very difficult to manage and we dont want to go down that route again sorry.

                          But thank you for your support and suggestions they are always very gratefully received and very much appreciated.

                            Well the reply was certainly concise Heather. Lol. Thanks for relaying it and continued success with this brilliant site.

                              There's nothing to stop people resurrecting the existing general chat thread or starting a new one in the members lounge.

                              I know it's not real time chat but it could be used for general chit chat.

                              Just my 2p's worth.
                              The only thing to look forward to is the past
