Chat

I have been "surfing" the net. I say it that way, because until this forum, I never talked online. I would google and such, but never a forum website. I have seen that other forums have a chat room in them. I think something like that would go over big here.

Chat can be fun, but for some of us it would mean nothing else ever getting done again!

Send a message via MSN to kitchenelf
We have talked about a chat room before and I don't know, at this time, if that is an option. We would need someone moderating it and this also may be a program that needs to be purchased.

I use MSN for chat.

I would be happy to moderate it for you
I'll look into what it would cost today. I'll get back to you. If it isn't out of my budget, I'll buy it myself. I stress: IF IT IS NOT OUT OF MY BUDGET. I have a family and kids along with a wife. How to explain that I am buying a chat program for a website, might not be easy.

You might have to buy it for your site, but I will be more then happy to moderate it for you.

Money and mods are not the only reasons we have not gone this route yet. There are some other logistical reasons why it might not make sense here. The mods and admins will continue to discuss it though and see if it will fit in here.

That looks like it is only free for a trial. If you decide to but then the cheapest choice is $295 for 100 users.

It could come in handy when someone has a recipe emergency ... "OMG, my entire family is coming over and the cap came off the salt shaker! WHAT DO I DO!?!?!?!?!?!?!!??!?!"
