Re: NAFFF has been SOLD!
NAFFF only has Super Moderators so there is no difference between moderators and Super Moderators.
Hmmm, the Chat Room. To have a chat room we need the software to be added to the NAFFF system. So first thing there is a cost involved in setting up the Chat Room.
Then you have to have someone responsible for setting up chats. This is a problem with a USA wide forum. What is a convenient time on the West cost is generally not convenient for the East coast. So scheduling is a problem. Next is how many people will use the Chat Room. On a Bass fishing forum I belonged to, they had a Chat Room. When a chat was scheduled only one or two people would show up. If other people have had a different experience with Chat Rooms then lets hear how it was used.
There is no way to pay for the Chat Room cost so we would be asking the owners to spend some money with no return. The only positive is it might make it a better forum. But, if it is not used it is wasted money.
Here are a couple of alternatives. Why not use the AOL or Yahoo AIM systems. I think Yahoo would let you set up a chat room for any topic. I don't know if they still do that or not.
Fysh, why don't you do a Poll and see how many people are interested in a Chat Room. You are the only one who has ever brought up the subject. If others don't want to participate then there is no use to even consider one.
