Party in the Chatbox

I am going to the chatbox for an hour to see what happens. If anything.

"The Chatbox"??!!! You say. It's not on my front screen anymore. Well, you can still get there by clicking on "Contagion" at the top menu.

Proviso: bring your own beer.

Re: Party in the Chatbox

Might I suggest FlashChat as an alternative? It was quite popular back in the day. It is also accessible under theContagion menu. The main differences is that the chat is private to those logged into FlashChat, and there is no historical record of the chat. Folk are likely to be less guarded in this atmosphere. The interface is more of a real-time experience as well.

Re: Party in the Chatbox

Thanks for the tip Doc B.

The last party in the chat-box was fun. But another on flash-chat sounds like a good plan.

So, I propose to be in the flashbox for an hour tonight (GMT+1, 22.00, UTC-6, 16.00)

Matt Cardin's birthday party. Even if he's not there...

Sounds like a plan. I will bring some good cider for the celebration!

Couldn't get FlashChat working. Will try again next time.
Probably missing a Windows Update...

Re: Party in the Chatbox

It was a really fun experience, and quite a few TLOers arrived in the end. Sorry that my old Tyger and Spooky weren't able to join in on it.

Flashchat is certainly more frenzied than Chatbox.

Anyway, if the problem persists perhaps we can revert to chatbox next time. Doc B will know best.
