Why doesn't anyone use the chat feature?

    I was just wondering why folks don't use the chat feature here at TB? I check in there daily, and no one's ever there (except me of course!). The few times I've been there with others was great - lots of great information from other bassists, tips, ideas, etc. Comments?

  5. just go to chat, and assuming you have the correct java plugin you should be able to log right in with the same credentials as yoru forum stuff. the forum link is at the top by the way.
    cheers,

    It's been pretty slow. Threads like this fill it up for a little while, then everyone forgets again.

    i was under the impression that chat was for paying members, which i'm not yet.
    i guess i'll have to check my hypothesis out...
    (and i DO plan on becoming a supporting member soon!)
    hehhehheh....he sed 'member'... :p
     
  13. Yea, noone's ever in it. Remember the "I'm in chat now" thread?"

    daofktr, chat used to be for supporting members only, but it was changed over a while ago. (maybe a year ago?)

  17. I've noticed that the popular TB posters are never in the chat, with the exception of Major Metal.
