I think it sucks. The live "chat room" gets the flick. Because of the actions of a minority of whinging posters, a live "chat room" gets replaced with a dorky facebook structure where "friends only" can chat to each other without fear of contradictory opinions.The complaints that always came in about the old chatroom is that people would come in and cause trouble or there would be personality clashes. For this reason I am trialling a Facebook style footer chat.
You will have to add those you wish to chat with to your friends list and then they will be able to see you online and chat with you. It is possible to chat with more than one person, but they will all have to be added as friends. People can organise this themselves via PM. This way, everyone can chat with whomever they want to chat with and I won't have to field complaints about people causing trouble in the chatroom. It got quite ridiculous at one point and hopefully this will solve the problem.
Those who do not wish to use the chat feature can simply hide the chat bar in the footer by clicking the down arrow on the far right.
I would be interested in any feedback on this feature.
Reality gets replaced with a sanitised form of "I agree with you & you agree with me, so we must be right".
Of course this is only an opinion and everyone else is more than welcome to jump in.
