I've indulged in using it twice, so far. Basically, I suck at initiating small talk (although I answer questions well). I also type rather slow, and would expect to lag way behind in multiple conversations.
PLUS....I'm extremely sarcastic, and tend to be taken way too seriously by alot of people. (i.e. when I tell someone I have 40 feet of extension wire on my headphones, enough to listen in the shower, and that person explains to me why I shouldn't do that....then the conversation is over, before I say something that starts a fight.....again)

Yes! There should be a visible notification when someone is in the room.

one reason is now you need to be logged into zforum to goto chat
before you could sign in anonomously or under a amusing username

there's always some zcurious person who passed by or was somewhat intimidated about forum registration

the chatroom that comes with this phpBB is a cold sterile colourless place
it is not how they say condusive to audience participation
which is as sad as fuck really coz sometimes people just want to chat instead of writing inane dribbles all over the place

1. it doesn't work well

2. as stride pointed out, half the fun of the old chatroom were the colorful characters that wandered in off the "street". We always knew when it was you Stride (I think :? ) or Dr. Ronnies.

3. Stride is right on, it is a cold and cheerless place. In the old one we got to choose avatars: I was a crescent moon, stride was a globe, dovey was the yin/yang, stu was the suitcase (with btm's royalties - what a great story!), etc

4. Some of us from the old place get together in different venues, sometimes we even use voice chat (wow!)

5. there are no sound effects. okay, we don't have them now where we talk, but we did in a java chat room we inhabited for a while. What fun that was. somebody moo like a cow! he he he he he

6 I even got used to the endless Dweezil/Weasels Ripped My Flesh ad at the top of the screen.

Good Times!

I used to, way back when. So did alot of others. We'd have 8 or 10 in there at a time.

I was just there today and found two others for a nice little chat. I think we tend to peek in and see no one so we leave. So nobody's there long enough to see anyone else there.

Perhaps when we log on to the forum, we should also log into the chat room and just sit there while we check out the rest of the forum. Then people poking their heads in will see someone. :)

Just a thought.

I don't use the Chatroom but there are others who are wondering where it went & if it was coming back since they miss the Chatroom.

I really don't know what happened to the Chat room, I just thought that picture was funny to post.
