    As Chris Rock would say, "There's NO SEX IN THE CHAMPAGNE ROOM."

    errr, no gamethreads in the sun deck.

    On a side note.... C. Trent Rosecrans blog comments went up nearly 100 posts tonight.... Wonder if the change at RZ had anything to do with that.

    As a chat semi-regular, I'm currious. What is it about the chat feature that you do not find up to snuff?

    I was wondering the same thing. Aside from the poor text color choices of some, it's in many ways better than the game thread, IMO. The atmosphere is lighter and it flows better. But that's just me.

    I agree totally! Frankly, I can't stand the guy either. And since we are airing our dirty laundry, his breath stinks.

    Besides that, he's a stickler for correct spellings. Drives us all nuts with it.

    It lags a little, some people get booted alot, the screen and colors are really odd, no one seems to ever chat about anything, and I've never seen more then 5 people in there

    Maybe there's some room for improvement with the applet. I do know the background colors can be changed. I had to play around with it a bit to find something I liked.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    It is finiky with different browers and will cause regular boot outs. GAC has trouble with it often, I've only had one bad night (and that was when I was in a hotel, so who knows what sort of goofy hardware/software they have).

    The fonts are changable, not sure about the screen color (background is blue). Yes, you definatley have to tinker with the fonts to get them to look right.

    Depends on the game, the night and time as to how many people are in chat. Last night I ducked in durring the top of the 3rd and there was 1 other person. By the time I had to leave (right before Javy's homer) there were about 12-15 people. Boring game = less chatters and chat action (and we tend to drift off subject). Exciting game = more chatters and more chat action.

    I've never found that "no one ever seems to chat about anything". Again, depends on the game. But usually there's lots of comments on the game at hand. Not sure what you are expecting (and maybe I'm biased since I enjoy the chat room).

    What sort of chat activity are you looking for besides commentary on the game at hand, and general goofing around about various situations in the game?

    I could care less either way as I didn't really post in the game threads that much and I don't go to the chat but something you said really stuck with me. Isn't what you just described the reason that people had issues with the game threads? "Boring game = less chatters and chat action (and we tend to drift off subject), general goofing around about various situations in the game." So if all of the people that did these things in the game threads now come to the chat as it is their only option and get off topic and clutter the chat will it then be off limits to certain people.
