Please> we need to see how many people that would like to get the chat going again!! Let's get the chat back up and running and have fun!! This can be a good thing for those of us that have questions and need instant answers from knowledgable RC veterans on-line. There has been a growing need for this I see, so, that is why we need this poll, to show Wattflyer that we WILL use their chat if they give us another chance. Just post anything showing you want chat back up and running!! WE NEED YOUR HELP! Wattflyer will be watching this thread, I assure you. Thanx, Scott.;)

I don't think it is too much work for the administrators. They had one here in 2005, but shut it off due to lack of use. I see that Wattflyer has grown alot since then. A friend has put a chat in his website and even though there are about 7 of us, we use it every night. I do agree that there should be a notifier when people are in the chat. LIKE a red flashing banner that says> CHAT ROOM IS ACTIVE< or something. There are ways to make it work. That was great advice, thanx. Scott.

Rabbitcreekok
03-01-2007, 04:23 PM
When the chat room was active, I went there several times and, as others have said, waited....and waited and so on.

Perhaps the chat room could be set to be active at certain times. I know WattFlyers are from all over the world and time zones don't match but if chats were scheduled at certain times, we would know there would be someone to chat with at those times. Just a thought.

Even when I joined about a year ago, this forum was still in its beginning stages. I wasnt here in time when they had the chat room, but since it was a new forum explains why it wasnt used much. Now, it seems that I recognize alot of user names and think the chat function would be a great addition.

I like the idea of a chat room also, with a couple of provisions;
The flashing (or easily spotted) notice that it was "on" or being used. Perhaps, after the first click, it would indicate which members were there. 2nd click, you're in. That way, if (say) you knew it was mostly Sailplane flyers and you fly Heli, you could opt out without disrupting the chat.
Two, the problem of multiple time zones is real, but within the US we'd be dealing with a 3 or 4 hour difference. After folks had used it a bit, they could work out a time, convenient to the regular users, to meet again. "Next tuesday, 6pm EST, HOTLINERS!" sort of thing. I'd guess that within a short time there would be something that anyone interested could attend.
I'm not saying it would have to be that formalized, there might always be general chat going on, but I think the more specialized interests would find a way to convene. With the understanding that a new person could ask a general question without fear of ridicule or misunderstanding.
Anyway, it's a great idea and I would gladly support it any way I can.

It doesn't matter what your choice of flying is, as long as the chat is going on you just may learn something about it and LEARN. That is the reason most of us are here anyway I think.

This chat, I am sure, will be well used and I am sure it will be very educational and help those who may need a quick tip. I am sure someone will be in the chat room that can help anyone at anytime. We should have a Moderator(well educated) assigned to the chat room to help those who need it. Thanx for your great words. Scott;)

Because this needs to be moderated how about this?

Lets try and open it 1 day a week for now and see how much interest it generates. Open it like say every Wednesday from around 2 to 10pm and see how it goes. It can be modified from there pretty easy after a few trail runs if needed.

I have no power to make this happen but it sounds workable and I would be glad to help out in any way on this.

It was up. We had it online for about 5 months and it never got used. Of course we were just a we youngin at that time. We went through an upgrade and since it was never used, it was decided not worth it to dedicate the effort to roll it back in since it take a bit of work on the code.

Ill speak with Marc about it.

Hey Kosh - you'll be leaving a lot of guys out!!:eek:

Sorry but that may be unavoidable at first. Getting late night (or early morning in your case) moderation other than me may pose a challenge and I believe it takes a admin to open and close it.

Given a little time though its possible to work something out at least a few times to test and see Watt it draws. I'm not speaking for Wattflyer on this matter and its just my opinion of how this might work out. I want to see this open as much as the next guy and think we have the membership and topics to give it a try again now.

Heres a idea that we might try in the meantime, Do a poll on Messengers?
MSN, Yahoo, ICQ ... and find out whats the most popular used here. We can open a unofficial Wattflyer room on the winner. I myself like the Yahoo messenger because of great voice chat in room. :)

Chat this idea over and see what you can add to it.

Hi Kosh

I am on Skype and fact is Up_Ya_Go from this forum and I have become thick as thieves since hooking up on Skype. I find the 'live' nature of the chat will be great and it's nice to have real time answers to questions some times.

Unlike general chat rooms we share a common love for a hobby and sometimes it is also nice just to pass the time of day.

Speaking of the poll - perhaps there's a way to list all the 'Skype' users and others and maybe hook up that way. What I am trying to say is 'to be in a chat with shared interests.

I think that this time it will work out well. We just need to get more people in here to speak out for a new chat room. I am disappointed by all the hits this thread has got and not nearly as many responses!!!!!!!! Hey, if you visit us....... Please leave a word about a new chat room needed.

The problem you run into here is having people all of the world useing diffrent chat rooms. And verision's, Ya you might selectthe one with the most people but then you are leaving out alot of people who have diffrent chat things.

I have been to RC groups and it is VERY hard to locate that chat! I am still trying to find it. I don't know how others have fallen upon it but, I hope it won't be hard at all to find it here. Like last time when Marc said it was located (in wattflyers) in the middle of the tool bar, That would be nice. Right where it currently says' # of posts'. And maybe it could flash when it detects others in the chat to get peoples attention. It is truly great to have a forum and chat for electric flyers even though gassers are welcome. Thanx, Scott;)

Dont think that this chat is a tease

Cuz most of us can talk with the breeze.

Bowtie hi might be a NASCAR fan

Talk with the breeze? So that's what you say...
Being able to chat would blow us away.
Sit yourself down, strap yourself in....
It won't be long before Chat's goin again.

You guys are goofy. :p

I know chat's already coming back, but just to chime in why I'd like it back, as well:

Chat rooms integrated into forums aren't always very full, realistically, because most of the users are browsing the forums. So popping in and hoping to find a bunch of people in it can be a bit of a pipe dream at times, realistically.

However, there are a few people here (*looks at Tom* :p ) whom I like to pester unrelentlessly with questions from time to time. I log on, see who's online, and then send one of them a PM about something. We then proceed to chat back and forth over PMs until I've once again reached my 300 messages limit and have to go back quickly and start finding non-essential PM's to delete so I can make room.

If we had a chat room, I could just send one PM asking if a person had a sec to chat, and then we could converse in realtime and I could simply save whatever bits of wisdom they bestowed upon me into a Word document after we were done.

So bring back the chat, it's time to play
Bring it on back, maybe later today?
The office is boring, the customers reek;
So bring back the chat to help speed by this week! :D

Looks to me like it's a chat room for starving poets.

Full of rust, so, Dave you say
It's pretty old, I drive it every day.
If it falls to pieces on my way to work,
I'll hop in my foamie and look like a jerk:D

Yes Perl, we feel your pain,
reeking customers and slow day blues.
Chat would really help you gain,
knowledge on electrics and selective glues.:p

You guys are goofy. :p

Scott,
Marc has stated that he will roll the chat back in during the next upgrade. We are due one soon and once the rls is final he will implement. It is a bit of work to integrate the code back in and if he did it pre upgrade, then he would have to do it all over again after the new release. So it is coming, but not until after the upgrade.

The Chatroom is online and working. Enter the Chatroom from the top right menu bar.
