WHy dont WE create a chatroom just for this site? Maybe we can use M.S.N or Y.A.H.O.O. PPL do it all the time. We should too. It would be kinda cool to talk to folks in a large group rather then one on one and snail like messenger. 10 folks or more agree to this maybe I'll host. Im on Cable so its not like i need to shut down or anything.
It would really be nice if there were a way for us to IM eachother. I have tried to IM people a couple of times and it has worked once. maybe we should start a group on M S N or y a h o o . I just can't believe that the message system won't let me use the names of the services. There must be a way around that "rule"
The Instant Messaging on here is horrible. It doesn't make a sound when you get an im, nor does it pop up in front of you, so if you dont see the little window blinking in your task bar at the bottom of your monitor, you wouldn't even know someone was trying to communicate to you. So, the answer to your question is NO, it is NOT you! lol It is the IM program they have...........yuck!
I wish they had a chat room that we could all gather in. It would make it so much more personable also.
I have had a couple of emails thru the site but I havent had a chance to use this site's messenger thing so I dont know if I have had any problems or not. I use that yellow smiley messenger thing too.. its just case sensetive. ;)
Wow, after reading these I'm hoping no one has IM me and I didn't respond. I also had to turn off my pop-up blockers. I've only been a member for about a week, but haven't had any responses yet. I agree, a chat room would be great. It would be less intimatdating than trying to IM someone, I'm always afraid I'll interrupt an IM that someone is in. Has anyone ever considered setting up a chat room on another site and then inviting others to join? Jeez, it wouldn't let me name the two most common sites...you know, the one that starts with MS_ and the other that starts with Yah__, got a message that said "unwanted words"....lol...
I agree, the IM on here is not that good, (and Iam being nice about the words I use). Posting on forums has gotten very good and thats a start. IM stands for "Instant Messanger" the site really needs to work on the instant part or re-name it RSM (REALY SLOW MESSENGER) or at least use the poney express it would ge there faster.
I would also like to see chat rooms, where people could just jump into conversations with others, that would be interesting.
I have had so much trouble with the instant messages. I feel very fed up with the waiting time for any kind of response(if any).I havent met one person from California,or anywhere.I feel very disapointed,and i am still waiting for someone to contact me or return my instant messages.The only person I have met has been a female(curvy_leo).She is a sweetheart,and understands and agrees with myLargeFriends issues.Is anyone else feeling this way?
You can have problems with firewalls and webpopup blockers. I have to disable mine to chat or list it as an allowed site. Sometimes when you are on there you have to keep hitting return to read the other persons messages and it often get miscontrued as being an awkward silence like they think you're having to think of answers when in fact it's a just a technical hitch...well that's my excuse...lol
I am in the Computer industry and the chat on here is horrible. There is only 1 man online in TX most of the time when I check and I can't even get him to respond so I am REALLY hoping it is just the program itself
I'll keep trying!
