Chat is gone!

Recommended Posts

I took a look at fixing the Chat window... there wasn't any hope of making it work. The add on software that enabled it has become so expensive that it doesn't make sense to keep it around and there really is no other chat app available as a plug-in to IPB. I'll keep looking. This was the first time in over a year and a half that I've looked at anything behind the scenes here and it all looks like a foreign language to me and I can't find anything that looks like what it used to. I may have some time in the future to look at things.

Too bad most everyone went to Facepage, when we have everything we want right here.

I thought about this statement and ... well you really don't have everything right here...

 

(1) There is not good security. This sight has been hacked so many times and the cost and time and effort to make it secure would be pretty high.

(2) People want to connect with their other friends and groups outside of STLAR and you can't do that easily here. You can belong to other groups and motorcyclists and invite them to join the STLAR FB page easily.

(3) You can host live vids and chats on FB etc... can't do that here.

(4) There is both private and public group chat.

(5) And well it's free.

 

Granted, some people aren't comfortable being on FB ... but you never have to post anything and only have to look at the STLAR FB page.

I went there ^^^ and access is denied. Unless I join facepage can't access the "public group.." anything. Here, all you need is Internet and you can at least see the basics to get you started. As far as connect with other groups, I'm already on other groups such as work related "Powerlineman and Electrician's talk.com" which almost no-one here would have any interest in. As far as security is concerned you are no better off on facepage then here. If here needs some upgrades then so be it. With facepage you have zero say on any aspect of it, including trying to leave. Finally, nothing is free and depending on the degree of advertising you will now have to have the latest software, most powerful hardware and best possible internet connection just to read something. I realize few people will ever read this. My hope was that once enough people got tired of "facepage" they would go back to the individual forums. Unfortunately I was wrong. CH
