That is what I was more/less referring too when I said it operates different. A dozen years ago there were folks actively "chatting". Like I said, "Maybe it'll find it's way".

johncanfield This chat box is a 'plug in' to the vBulletin program and no doubt different than the old version. As far as the late replies, the problem is trying to get users on chat at the same time. A bit of an issue since we cover three time zones.

geroux This "chatbox" doesn't seem to operate in the same manner here as the chatroom did over a decade ago.

Seems someone writes something and then hours later someone responds. Back in the day there would be several folks on at the same time having an active conversation.... actually chatting.
Not really a chatroom or "chatbox" as it is called now. Maybe it'll find it's way.

johncanfield Yes, I think I forgot to mention you need to be in the forums and not the home page.

Edit: yup, didn't have that in the announcement but I added that caveat.

geroux Holy crap.... I remember the chatroom! Seems like that was 10 years ago. Should work on a laptop on a WiFi connected to a Desktop too, right?
