Default Re: chat room

Why not just use the social groups feature, then you can decide who can join, and if some one wants to join they need to send a PM to the creator?

These are my suggestions hope they make sense and a chat room will be created.

Thank you
I moved your post to the T1N section. This one...

http://sprinter-source.com/forum/showthread.php?t=25166


The thing about a "chat room" or a one-on-one with some expert on a matter is that no one person has all the answers. Yes, there is Dr. A (which you could call and have a one-on-one over the phone. Much easier talking than typing), but I would try getting answers from the Sprinter community on a whole before talking to the Dr.

You'd be surprised at how knowledgeable the community as a whole is. A lot of them have gone through the same issues.

The Astro list I belonged to Had a chat room. It worked well. Chats were regularly scheduled events.
