LIVE CHAT ON THINKPADS.COM

#1 Post by Khipata » Wed Nov 05, 2014 5:31 pm

I thought it would be great if you guys could incorporate some kind of live chat for the members who are online simultaneously at any given time. Would be fun and also would save some time for everyone :)

We had one. It fizzled out. We mostly prefer the forum since any useful information is lost in chat and not available for others.

firstly, the user andersan failed to fill in his location. then I checked his IP in stopforumspam and there are many hits there.. also its a paki IP.. so he is deactivated..
meanwhile, a chat here..?
sounds like something we might look at..?
