Suggest that when members log on to view the Forum page they also log into the chat room float. It is a great resource that is going unused. There are enough people logging on to make the chat room more of a success.
Sometimes it only takes a suggestion...
Just log on to chat room (float) each time you log onto this site
. You can then (float) around to the classifieds and forums pages. You will stay logged onto the chat room. Turn your volume up and the room will let you know when somebody is talking with you. It can be a lot of fun.
Check it out. Make it work.
