First off - the font is very hard to read.  I'm working on that.

 

Second, the only way to get out of it right now is by clicking the "View New Content" link at the upper right hand corner. Otherwise you get an error message.  DONE!

 

Right now we have the free room for 5 users at a time.  If it's popular, we can upgrade at any time
 
 
5 Users    Free
 
20 Users    $10/yr
 
50 Users    $15/yr
 
250 Users    $40/yr
 
 
Also, we can add the instachat/shoutbox back in, too.

I just took a peek in the chat~room, was just me, but it worked!!  Back a year or more ago, when lots of us chatted, we'd have sometimes between 5-12 people at a time.  I think we should/could go for the 20 people in a chat.

The insta chat I only saw for a little bit when Alice brought it back a few years ago.   Wasn't here for the first time around, but did hear the ladies liked it.

Thanks - turned out that first chart I saw lied about the chatroom costs - or they were updated but the page not changed.

 

The current prices are 

 

5 Users    Free (What we have now)

 
20 Users    $10/ every 6 months
 
50 Users    $15/ every 6 months
 
250 Users    $40/ every 6 months
 
Still, not too bad.

chat room looks very nice.  I'd say go for the 50 user price.

Hi Mary, when I try to enter the chat room I get a "you do not have permission" message. I am using an I-pad - is there something I need to do? I' ve also had no luck editing my profile - where do I find info on how to do this? You've done such a fantastic job with the site :)

Jelee, until you made your last post you were a "Newbie".  Now you have enough posts to be a "Member" and you should be able to access the chatroom just fine :)

There's other stuff under MyPrefs, like if you want the room to have the newest posts on the bottom.

 

I've disabled the sound because I think everyone could hear that, not just folks chatting, and that could be very annoying.

 

Check it out, though and see what else you can change :)
