Questions about the forums: Chat and WAP

Post by harryguy082589 »

1. I don't know if there is any interest or if its possible, but can there be chat rooms made? For group meetings and dicussions when we're all together?
2. Does anybody here check the forums from their cell phones? Would anyone else like\could there be a cell phone (WAP) interface?

As Otto is painfully aware :wink:, I'm a supporter for the creation of a live chat section.

How 'bout it Otto? Any hope for chat in 2007?

You know my opinion... there's always room for chat! On AIM, Yahoo Messenger, MSN Messenger, etc. etc...

The cell phone interface? Sounds like a question for Mike Roque.

I use my phone sometimes to check the forum but not often. The chat idea is really interesting too.

You can use your cell phone to check the forum! WOW, who knew, what next??

I hate technology (and spelling) but a chatroom sounds like a good idea!!

We discussed chat here: http://railroad.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=23898

We're concentrating our resources on other features right now, and chat is not one of them.

Well it gives me something to do on the train :-)

And set times for set subjects w/ AIM, Yahoo or anyone else would work, just coordinated by the moderators.
