    I don't like that sentence for some reason

    There is rarely anyone in the chat rooms.

    Miggy always used to get the chat room going but got bashed all the time for it, Not sure why. Even with all Miggys antics he did his small part for Fcb whether good or bad.

    #1 We are on a messageboard where we can chat right here. Why take content away from the forum?
    #2 He was told by moderators to cut out his stupid once a day "chat" topics and he ignored them and just kept posting it even if he was not there.
    #3 I doubt highly getting 4-5 people off the board and into the chat helped, as the forum was ignored by those members as they chatted and no content was created or added during that time.

    #1 You do not really know what a "chat" is, do you?
    #2 The fact that 4-5 people enjoyed his posts, and 100+ people did not care one way or another made it a little harsh to be critical of his once a day posts, and I would hope that the mod staff would agree they flew off the handle on that one. Traffic at 11:00PM-2:00AM (western time) I thought should be able to handle that thread.
    #3 You don't really know what a "chat" is.

    Cleary people being in a chatroom on FCB is going to drive people away from posting on FCB.

    Everybody knows that the more time you spend on a website, the less likely you are to contribute.

    Miggy sent me messages once and he acted a little...odd. It didn't exactly make me want to go in a chatroom.

    As for now, if there's only a few people in there it's awkward. So it's a catch-22, to get more people in the chatroom there has to be more people in the chatroom.

    Random chatroom activity is sketchy at best. I feel someone would need to play host, with certain topics scheduled to discuss, and a set time for it so people know when to join in on a conversation they would want to participate with.

    I can't argue with these points! If there was a +1 emoticon, I'd use it right here_______.

    All it needs is a few people who are able to spearhead the campaign without being annoying or spammy.

    Halfway through typing that I realized that it might just be an impossible task.
