    Chat

    Hello,

    at the "Welcome to Flash Kit Introduction" I could read: "New to Flash Kit is the chat room."
    But the Link brings me only to the Message Board.
    Why there ist no Chatroom anymore?

    Greetings,
    chrischi

    In my humble opinion
    It was a waste.

    Instant answers arent always the best answers.

    There are plenty of chat vehicles available for
    those who want to.

    Posting in a forum serves functions chat cannot.
    Moderation control over content and views
    verifiability of claims
    The chance to get multiple perspectives.
    The opporitunity for others to learn from.
    A resouce stored for future reference.
    People on different time tables get to interact.

    Well, it WAS fun when everybody got on at once, but it was usually just spammed all the time.

    hi

    thanx for your reply!

    but sorry I don't really understand what do you mean with spam.

    I know spam-mails but what happens when a chat was spammed.

    Could you explain it to me, please.

    Sure thing.

    People were getting on there(at least from what I saw), and posting repeatedly their web site link, or links to porn sites...i.e. here is what it looked like:
