Because 2 users requested it, I've made it so the chat room link is accessible by anyone, even guests.  Before it was only accessible by people who have passed the newbie quiz.

I also changed the 'Help Room' into the 'Guest Chat / Help Room' where users can go to get help and where guests not signed up or logged in can also chat.  I'm not sure what happened to the old Guest Chat but now it's sorta back up.

Great, now we can talk guests into joining if they haven't already, but this could have old members, and or trolls, which could be a problem.

Good idea just as long as you got a mod in there else you are pretty much guaranteed spam fest. Does this chat have spam protection like they can only post a certain times per minute?

I think we should have the mods monitor chat as close as possible.

I generally am in there for most of the day and can get trouble out before it happens, but I can't cover it all day.

But this is an improvement and I'm glad it's involved.

This sounds interesting. I'm fearful of someone like JMC joining but I'll be monitoring the chat often to try and keep it under control. :)

Let's see how this works.

I like the idea. Now if we have some random child come we can tell him more about the site before he joins and gets frustrated and leaves because he does not know what he is doing. This should bring up the overall member growth in months to come. That is assuming that some kid does not just flame the chat room. So I assume that the link will be up regardless of if you are logged in or not? Otherwise they still have to sign up. :P

Davideo7 : Never did find it but I assume that it would not affect me anyway so I will just let it go. If they want to find it I am sure that they will be able too.

Yeah, there has been an influx of newbs and immature spammers in the chat lately. I'm not sure if it's because of this or not, but maybe they just aren't reading the rules anymore if they don't have to pass the Newbie Quiz.

Someone70 :

I argue it's more due to the facebook thing.

People can sign in with Facebook and it completely bypasses the account stuff basically.

So unless you know a person, you can't tell who they are.

Davideo7 : It's only been a general trend, and with only one or two members a day. But it's been going on for the past few days or so. But like leggy said, I suppose it has to do a bit with the Facebook thing too.

Someone70 : When did the Facebook thing get implemented though?  I don't think it's because of the facebook thing, and here's why.

Before, the only way to get the link to the chat room was if you passed the newbie quiz (which means you had to also be a member).

Davideo7 :

If I'm understanding right, yes, they can do it in any room.

I reccommend getting rid of the facebook/twitter/google thing regardless.

All it does is add confusion to who is in chat.

And to be fair, the majority of people who cause issues in chat are repeat offenders who had already passed the newbie quiz.
