As part of the server move and upgrade performed today on the forums I have added a new Chatroom application to the forums. Unlike the old chat room that was linked to the member bar that used to reside at the bottom of the screen the chatroom is a part of the forums themselves.
You'll need to be logged in to the forum to use them and they can be accessed here
. You can also see how many users are online while on the forums in the top right corner of the page.
The chat rooms aren't meant for anything serious and you can use them to chat about anything you like. I'll be in them regularly so if you're having issues with the site you can come in and have a word with me and get some real-time support. It also possesses real-time private messaging between members that might be handy for some folks.
All-in-all a nice little gimmick in and of itself. I'll see you there.
