May I suggest a chatroom Ron?  Based on all the praises about you that others have told me, I know you can do it    I just think that all members in passions can stay in touch with each other easier with a chatroom.  Not to mention the moderators too.  Well, just a suggestion.  You probably have been bugged about this before already

Hello acire  

As you've guessed, the idea of a chatroom has definitely been discussed before.  I went through the old threads and found Ron's most recent statement on the subject:

"Virtually all of the chat software needs to be run on both our server and on your local machine. When we tried, we discovered that some people could chat using one software package but not another, while others could only use a different package. It is that incompatibility that caused us to abandon the search. That's not to suggest we're not interested, but I'll admit I was discouraged from our previous attempts"

With all the changes that are being made in the forums though, maybe the idea of a chat room won't be so far-fetched in the future.  Ron's a pretty fantastic guy, I wouldn't be surprised if he could make it work somehow (or pull a white rabbit from my purse, for that matter).

One could set up a chat room in an IRC server.

Regardless of the work involved to do one......it can be done. But I do understand that it's a longshot......like acire said.......maybe in the future.

Well, it isn't like clicking a link here and being able to chat on the Passions boards, but a certain Alicat has created a sort of an outside haven for us on Yahoo.com

Its the Passions In Poetry Yahoo Club, and there is a place to chat on there. Pass this link I'm giving you on to whomever you can. After all, since we can see who is one (some of them) by the logon feature, it might be easier to get a group together to chat.

Oh man...that brought back memories all right. Yawp, I'm guilty of creating that place, then getting wrapped up with moving all around the country and plain forgot about it. So....um...it's still there? Now I've gotta go and take a look-see and see what has transpired.

PS: Ok, went back to site and made some changes to reflect the changes with PiP, as well as some site specific alterations. Hope you like.
