I think we all do just fine on the message board Macon. I also think that if you add the chat room it may take away from the forum with a few topics being discussed there that we all can't or wouldn't otherwise see.
And a chat room just adds something else for you to monitor. And maybe my slow dial-up won't handle the chat room anyhow?
All of the suggestions above are good and valid. I like the chat room because of the instantaneous response you can have. I wouldn't have time to get onto every day but it would be nice if the facility were there. Colin
I agree with most that it's hard to keep up with all the great info already posted on these boards. It might help someone who has an immediate need to be able to have immediate access to someone more knowleable.
