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.
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
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.
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.
