Chatroom

    SirDentposted 8 years ago

    I have been thinking a lot lately about opening a chatroom for hubbers. It will be on a server I already know about. Their chatrooms are similar to the old MSN chatrooms, but they have their own chat software, They're not pirates of the old MSN chats.

    What I would like to know is how many would be interested in chatting some.

    The site I am thinking of using is VSIXC. It's a very stable site with good servers. It will require a small download of their software. If I remember correctly it is under 1 MB. You must also register which is free. Also know that the name you register under will also be your handle in the chatroom.

    One of the biggest reasons for this is becauseof what happened with the Last One to Post thread. I don't blame Maddie for closing the thread. We all noticed how slow everything was here. If we get into a chatroom on a different server we could still chat and not affect Hubpages.

    Well it is a good idea I believe.  Parachat.com allows people to make their own free chatrooms, maybe that might work.

  11. ProCW profile image82

    do you already have a place to host it?

      SirDentposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      Yes I have a place in mind already. http://www.vsixc.com/

      It is almost identical to the old MSN chats. It isn't a pirate server like some others who use MSN's chat software for their chats. If I recall correctly you can get into the help desk without registering.

    We need a name for the chatroom. I would love to use Hubber's Hangout but not sure if HP would allow that.

    How about HubChat? All suggestions will be considered and a vote on it if we need to.

    1. Courtney_CollinsD profile image82

      HubChat doesn't sound too bad but then again a lot of people could mistake it for chat about husbands... <.<

        If the shoe fits? That's the name of it right now but we can change that at a later date. I have it open just to get the hang of it and decide if we all like it or not.

          Yes!  Can't wait, I just downloaded the software....bad me, I should be working.

          Somebody already had my name though, so I shortened it to Shirl.  Thx, ProCW, that's where I got the idea from.

    It isn't open at the moment. I can't stay there all the time myself. We need a name for it and then I need to know what category everyone would think is best to be listed under. Once everything is figured out I will create the room and register it so it will always be open.

    Hugs for all the ladies and buckshot for the jackalopes.

    HubChat sounds good, and would Peers be an appropriate category?

    I would love to chat in a chartroom with people. But I have a better one if your buying it!

    Try this one, it requires a download and all but this is safe and trusted by over 100 Million!!! (different server) all you need for this is a server and you can register a nick, don't have to. If you do use this I can set up the chat for you, all the controls and stuff. I'm good at that, I did it for my last clan of on and off 70 people. I am sure IRC can hold all the Hubbers!

      If you can find a public server you can open it there! I don't even think you need to pay for it. I been using mIRC and IRC for 4 years and i'm pretty sure with the mIRC download it asks you to pay for it but you can just wait and keep using it (I have been).

    Hi all--

    No, Shirley, I don't think by Baby is jealous of the "new me" or feels de-throned.  In fact, I think he could care less as long as I hold him while I'm typing!

    It was me who was getting jealous of everyone always changing their pictures--decided I wanted something new too!!

    Gads---I miss chatting with everyone here!  Can't wait to get going on the other site--it'll be up and in the tray from the time I turn the puter on in the morning until I shut it down late at night!!

    If I can just get on!!!!  Still working on it!!!
