View Full Version : Why Not
For about the past two years I have been wondering why there is no live chat forum for this site and, previously, SpineWire.

PN, I am copying this topic over to the feedback forum and answer it there. Wise.

Spinewire and Cando were originally set up as an information site rather than a socialization site. Rather than having people chat on the forum where the discussion is not recorded, we chose to use a forum where the answers could be recorded. I would like to set up a chat forum because there is a need for certain types of conversations but I want to make sure that whatever chat system we use, it fulfils the following criteria:
1. It must be usable by people who are not adept or able to type quickly.
2. It must be usable by people who are using head-mice and voice command.
3. It should be able to clearly display conversation threads with a minimum of typing and clicking.
I would very much like to know what chat forums people like and particularly which ones fulfil the above criteria.

Just posted this on this thread in the Life Forum.
I replied to your question there.
This is a different one from the one you went into last time. It is still at my homepage: Raven's Poetry & Chatroom (http://leonorc.home.mindspring.com/Raven2.html)
It should be easier to access. Please let me know if it is something which can be used by all.

DR. WISE, IT WOULD BE A GOOD FEATURE TO HAVE A 'CHAT' AT CC. HOPE IT COMES TO FRUITION. DOC, YOU'RE DOING A GREAT JOB WITH THIS SITE.
Your site is an excellent example of what a web page should look like! :-) I encourage others to look for themselves and share their home page or experiences with us.
