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.
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.
Everybody, this sounds like a great idea, but I haven't been able to sort out the software requirements and I just don't have time to fuss with it right now. I'll be back as soon as work permits. And thanks, Sir Dent--it's a fabulous idea.
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.
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).
Hey SirDent... can you tell the help desk there that I need my PW reset or something and to send an e-mail or something to my e-mail that I used when I registered? AND that their page to reset PWs is down.
Wouldn't it be nice, if hubpages had a small chat box, So we could talk to other brilliant hubbers or anybody in here, instead of waiting for email or forum responses. If at all it is a nonsense of an idea, then i'm not...
I know answering requests improves scores but answering our own request does it also improve or on the contrary does it decrease the score(and also does it go against the convention here at hubpages)?I am asking this...
