    Just two requests:

    1) could we get a link to chat like there is on the portal page - on the main forum top bar. Would make more people notice that it exists as I think many just link right to the forum as opposed to the portal

    2) would it be possible to get a notification bleep when people make a post in chat - would mean people could enter and leave it running in the background if it were empty and then get told when someone else starts talking in there (I know there is a new person bleep - but sometimes people sit in chat rooms and go quiet for a good while)

    There used to be a link there . . . musta gotten lost in an upgrade somewhere.

    I don't believe we have control over the chat software, however, it's IRC, so you can use other chat clients to access it. I used to use mIRC, and it was extremely customizable. Yes, you could make it beep when someone talked.

    You just have to set it up for the channel, #thephotoforum, and the server . . . uh . . . it's been a while, and I'm not at home to check . . . freenode? I think it's freenode.

    There's a link to it on the TPF homepage at the top (not the forum homepage). It's just me and Overread :(

    For the time being, I'm just talking to myself. Try to make it work for you and join me (others, do too!), for I only know that many stories I still don't know about myself which I might find interesting to hear me tell me ... erm :er:

    Nickserv keeps yelling at me to register my name first, then disconnects me from freenode, and yes my nick is registered and yes I tried to put my password in.

    Whatever
