    Exclamation Bring back the Forum Chat Window!!!

    Hey N3V,

    A long time ago, back to the old forum we had the chat window -- Boco, and a few Mod it for N3V! Not sure what happened but it was a cool way to constantly and daily communicate with other trainz users!

    Why is it around anymore, I wonder!!!

    I agree. Helps with people who can't use or install trainz (like me).

    It also might be easier for Mods to see bad things happening in the chat.

    In the old forum chat was there for many years, and like I said Boco and AJ, among others kept it civil!

    I just never understood why N3V took it away, and never saw an explanation from them, as to why!

    Chat was cool, in that, you go on there, ask questions and/or kill a few hours chatting about trainz, etc ...

    I tell you one thing, generally speaking to the community, it kept folks coming back to the forum! --

    I honestly think that this is a great idea. It would help me keep an eye on my chat channel while out of trainz.
    me too thanks

    This actually sounds like a really great idea. I would love to see something that isn't that god forsaken itrainz chat implemented into the forums. No anon accounts, only registered forum accounts!

    Cheers,

    YES! It should just be made so unregistered accounts can't use chat at all, when they try to it should give a prompt telling them to register.

    Hello --

    Resurrecting this thread!

    Why N3V don't allow us to chat, like the old days!?

    Sometimes chatting with your fellow forum posters helps each of us understand one another, and even help each other when we need it, when dealing with TANE, etc ..

    It can settle many misunderstandings, and lessen the flame wars, as well!

    I know, there's a million chat clients, but an in-house attached to the forum is the best ... was great then... we never really got an answer why it disappear!

    Just my 2 cents!

    Perhaps I'm slow today or too old but what can chat to that can't be done in a forum thread?

    Hello Martin,

    Sorry, sir, but don't quote understand your sentence above!

    But let me just add -- In the old forum, where we had chat IRC channel, and Boco was its' mod, I went on there few times to get help about trainz stuff! And when one chat, in real time, you get to fix things fast!

    Take Care

    What is the advantage of a chat versus a forum message? Chats may be live but since we are a world wide group, the expert you need might be asleep which makes the forum seem more convenient.
