    I made the suggestion about starting a chatroom on the forum. And this is what BIG MIKE had to say,

    "Good question. I think 'the powers' would consider it, if there was enough demand for it. Posting in this section is the first step. If you can drum up enough support, it will be strongly considered."

    So if you think it could be a useful tool and a way to learn more about your fellow photographers let us hear from you. Thanks

    My vote:

    I think it's a good idea. We had one once and it went away (I'm not sure why). The problem is keeping it flame-free. I would like to see it keep to photography and family-friendly, as there are many chat rooms out there for other topics. I think the last one was restricted to supporting members, if I remember correctly.

    I belive it was lost as the site changed owners - however in the time up till that point (at least half a year) it only got on/off usage. It was used well for some periods but also spent a lot of hours unused.

    Also no matter it level of use it is somethign quite major to control well - someone (team) has to moderate and review the logs to make sure things are going smooth - to keep the flames and fighting out.

    Be nice to have though so I'll put my name down on a yes
