The problem for me is that you Americans are never there at reasonable hours....... :P

Yes, I too remember when there would often be many people in the chat room - especially around 8-9 o'clock EST.

For those who prefer the forum or don't see the point of chat, it serves a very different purpose. The forum is for LEGO (especially Castle) discussion - the chat is for more trivial chatting. Any subject can be discussed - I once had a great discussion about theology and a different time I had one about classic movies. Chat is a wonderful place to get to know the real person better - not just the LEGO side of each member that is shown in the forums.

I used to chat a lot, and agree with everything said here. I know Steve (Athos) and Darkie and I have had some interesting converstions, and sneek peeks of MOCs once in a while.

It's interesting that chat has slowed down, because I've actually seen an increase in activity here on the board.

Well, I just signed up for the chat, hopefully I will see someone on there soon.
wrap me in a bolt of lightning,
send me on my way still smiling,
maybe that's the way i should go:
straight into the mouth of the unknown....

Good luck. You can hang out in there for hours and no one will show up, or you can be on for a few minutes and have ten people show up...

You know what might help this? Would it be possible to show on the mainpage how many people are in the chat room? I always visit the mainpage first and then go directly to the forum, but if I had a heads up right there that people were in the chatroom I might click and see what was going on there as well.

That is an excellent idea. I often head right into the forums without thinking about chat, but If I was notified that someone was in, I would want to go in and chat for a bit.

No it is not. Go to www.classic-castle.com and look at the right side menu. There is a red button that says CC chat. Click on this and register.

*revives old thread*
I now babysit weekly, and there's oftenly nothing to do but sit around, so I go to the chat room, but no one's ever there...

I'd certainly use it again if others used it - I think it's a case of no one ever going because no one else is ever there in the first place.

I also think the chatroom still has some issues - If you let it run on your computer for a while, waiting for someone to come, it seems to kick you out (without telling you) when someone joined. If I ever see anyone in there, I'll join, but it almost always immediately says "So-and-so Has Left."

I'm a fan of MSN: Add me up!
