Chat Room
« on: January 05, 2019, 03:59:35 AM »
It appears that no one is using the chatroom, at least regularly. Having it active, used or not, has a slowing effect on the site. So, we're asking folks for their opinion with respect to keeping the Chat Room active??

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

Since there is not a indicator of when someone is in chat I never look in.

I like the concept, but without an indicator if anyone is in there, and no more "Friday Pub Nights", I never use it....

Well, I really don't much care either way. I tend to never use it here, or on other forums with out without an icon that says someone is in the room.

I will say that we ended up removing features a long while back because it's very hard on the servers. A lot of hosting companies don't allow chat because they are such resource hogs.  It will not hurt my feelings to unwire it, and delete the DB.

Ok, it is unanimous. No one seems to care one way or another. I'm killing it. Say bye bye!  8)
