    All --

    There are a few of us in the chat room now, I thought it would be nice to have a Sunday night chat tonight at the chat server:

    irc server: irc.beyondirc.net
    room: #abestweb

    Also, I've setup a temporary JAVA IRC web gateway if you don't want to download, install and configure mIRC.

    Just go to: http://www.candlepeople.com/java/

    Haiko - if you want my registered copy of jIRC, let me know, I can provide you the license key I bought and I'll stop using it on my own server.

    Heyder,

    Haiko would be in a better position to answer that than I [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img] I spoke to him about all this and he was hesistant due to some abuse problems in the past. I told him I would try to find a way to curb those abuses.

    In fact, the server we are using has highly configurable controls to stop fraud, nickname abuse, identity cloaking and has behavior controls aplenty.

    Each user is advised to register their nickname (since we are on a smaller international server) which will stop ALL nickname theft or identity fraud. If any users come in that are not civil, they will be banned from the chatroom, and if that is not enough, we can ban them from coming to the server at all.

    However, right now there are 7 or 8 users in the chat and we'd sure like to see more. Stop on by!

    http://www.candlepeople.com/java/ (temporary java chat location)

    or you can login with mIRC at irc.beyondirc.net in room #abestweb.

    See ya!

    "I thought these chats were banned from abw."

    Chats banned? What are you talking about. If people here want to chat with each other and go make a chat room somewhere it's nobodys business.

    Quite contraire! Tonight has been a great chat night. We've had over 25 people stop by (at max 8 at a time) discussing google, page ranking, affiliate programs, fraud, parasites and much more.

    It's been a good success and is still going on.

    I tried getting into the IRC chat room last night...but the mIRC software crashed my computer, and I lost my TCP/IP protocol to be able to connect to the internet. Worked all day to get it back in order. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

    No I think it's great that everyone is chatting. If you studied up on past posts you would know a lot more about what I'm talking about. I have nothing against it at all.

    There were things that happened as mentioned earlier and I was under the impression that no one was supposed to post links to private chatrooms. I'm only doing what I'm supposed to be doing.

    Yes I completely agree but on who's dime will these chats be advertised?


    I wasn't born an A-hole like a lot of people seem to think.

    Happy New Year!!!

    Heyder i can understand that point. The thing is we wouldn't have to go anywhere else if we had chat here. I think that would be great for registered users. Real time chat is a great idea. Maybe in the future??

    I'm thinking of offering that as a downloadable course. I am sure I can find an expert to write the book at small cost. What do you think is a fair price for the course?

    I like the idea of a chat and have always supported the idea...at least for an OFFICIAL ABW chat. As much fun as the previous chats were, there were some serious issues that truly need to be addressed...there was also a lot of fall-out from those chats, some that ended friendships. I believe many things need to be worked out to avoid something like that happening again.

    I won't mention specifics, but those of you in previous chats know the incidents that I'm referring to.

    I would suggest a different program for the chat. The one we used last night was not completely user friendly. For example, it would not let me use a number 7 in my username. Second, it had lots of extranious information on the screen everytime someone logged on. Third, especially with all that extranious info, it was hard to keep up when there was mor than six people on the chat. Fourth, it logged nearly everyone off at one point while I was on.

    I'd suggest a program like ParaChat. It's being used at another affiliate board and is pretty smooth. Of course, you get more than six people on any board and it might be hard to keep up. Wish we could find one that had a bigger view screen.

    Just my two cents for when Haiko opens the official chat room. The one last night was a good trial run.
