    Some of us can't log on to chat, it doesn't come up on the Bar on top , perhaps its because we are running Windows Professional, I'll have a yarn with Jim a Lincoln to find out why?

    :( The problem is that those who use it only go on at something like ll.30 at night which is way too late for most of us to start a long conversation event.... I used to go in about nine o clock and it was full and it was good to talk to everyone. One by one they dropped off and it became too late for everybody. :( I've popped in a couple of times over the last weeks but no-one in.. Maybe if once someone goes in a little light flashed up on the forum it might encourage others to go in... just an idea.

    On the dark line at the top of the page to the right of the word Events ... there are three lines on top of each other .. Click on that. Click on chat. Voila.

    The Chat room is written in HTML5 so you should be able to see it on all platforms, phone, tablet Mac PC etc.

    I too miss the chatroom and used to be in a lot but now it find it really too late . I go to bed at 10.00 French time cause if I don't , when clock gives me a shout at 5.00 it is just a torture!!! I wish there was a ding dong sound to give anyone in a warning someone else is getting in so that when we're a bit away from the computer we can come back quickly and answer to people coming in!

    There have been a few threads about this recently, although more to do with the old quiz chatroom. It seems like this time of the year with people away, and the switch in forum software, has thrown a spanner in the works. Things might pick up as the nights close in.

    Personally, I struggle with the chatroom, and for various reasons stopped attending the quiz.

    Nobody wants to chat to freeloading, off-site, PC, mamby pamby, tree hugging, do gooding, immigrant loving tossers like me anyway.

    We give the rest of you a bad name... :rofl::rofl:.

    To prove this I will go into Chat now...

    JJ :cool:

    I think the best idea might be if your free to go in and hang around a while. It is possible to be in chat while still surfing the forums at the same time.
