    You could start an unofficial TalkBass Chat room in Yahoo or something...

    The one we had here never really caught on... it was a bit like having a trampoline in the back yard getting all rusty and covered in leaves...

    maybe we could take off some of the forums that never get used like the lounge thing and a few others because they get used less than the chat ever did

    Actually, the Lounge is pretty busy. And why would we need to 'take off' some of the forums?

    The reasons that the chat were discontinued is 1. because few people used it, and 2. because the license for the software cost extra money, which 3. was not a justifiable expense, see #1.

    As a technical admin on two vB forums I have personally used that chat mod, it's free and works very nicely. There are plenty of options, and for a 30$ paypal donation you can get the copyright removed if you so desire. I personally would use this and since it's free, why not :p. Oh also, vBulletin 3.50 will be going final soon and you guys need to get ready for the upgrade, you're already out of date since there is v3.08 now.

    just a +1 for the chat return. I used it once a week or more for the last two months before it was removed.

    I did use the chat function too...there were a few tumbleweeds flying around in there, but it was interesting. I'd like to see it again.
