Thinking about chat - A suggestion

I have noticed a couple things about Flash Chat. First the quick link has not returned. Second you really do not know if anyone is there unless you go there, which requires finding the "Flash Chat" thread, looking up the link and then going there. Alternatively, you could bookmark the chat link. If no one is there, then you start PMing people.

Therefore, I would like to suggest / ask this: Could a section be put on the portal that shows who is in the chat room and possibly the heading of the section would be the link to go there? In my opinion, that would promote use of chat and make it easy for folks to visit.

If I am out of line, please delete this thread.

Thank You

AC

Thank You Kadesma. I have the link bookmarked and that makes it possible to get into the chat room. What I am suggesting is that on th emain page, it shows who is in the chat room and has a clickable link to get there. I know it can be done. The site The Diesel Garage has the feature installed and working. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to see it. I think that it could possible increase the use of chat.

Just my two cents.
AC
