A virtual world of delightful social interaction between people from all ends of the earth. I've been told that angels sing background music and gumdrops and ADD meds fall from the heavens. The descriptions sounds so realistic that I desperately want to believe them, but time after time I search for this magical place only to come up empty.

Doesn't it sound great? Maybe someday.................
heh, i often muse that they say the same thing about us...when they want to see us which isn't often lol

Re: The mythical chat room!

You know, I was browsing around and found out the owner of the forum is DAVID and his profile shows that he hasn't made a post since 2011, but it says his recent activity was like a week ago (I'm guessing that just means he's logged in recently).

Now the mystery behind the broken chatroom is solved... lol jk.. just thought it would be funny to say that

Re: The mythical chat room!

Would definitely be a good idea as long as the rules were in place.... having a chatroom full of ADDers would mean the conversations would be irratic, random and posters would be impulsive.... and very quickly go off topic.

Not that it's a bad thing though, that's how most of my conversations go

Re: The mythical chat room!

I'd happily provide a place to chat if people are up for it. Have domain + hosting, just have to know if it's going to be used.

Re: The mythical chat room!

I have a feeling that it wouldn't be used as much as many think. It worked when I first joined. Sometimes there were people in it but not participating in the chat. Once in a while there was some conversation. I chatted with a couple people who just happened to be on at the same time I was and we were both in the mood to talk.

Re: The mythical chat room!

There is an ADHD chat room over at healthfulchat.org that's open all the time. I go in there sometimes. Obviously it's not at all affiliated with addforums, but it's on-topic and the people are friendly and weird (in a brilliant way). Hope that helps.

Re: The mythical chat room!

Being a new user here I would love to see and talk to people who are logged in when I am, but on the flip side, I would spend so much time on the chat feature that I wouldn't post much or I would post more and not use the chat feature at all.

Also, the downside for me of having a chat feature is I spend so much time on it that I forget about my other things Im suppose to be taking care of. Thankfully for me with the way technology is going I love texting (most of the time) and can text/chat with friends from my computer all while working.

Re: The mythical chat room!

But really is it any wonder that the chat isn't working? How many times have we said we would fix something but... 2 years later.... 3 years later.... Yup, going to fix it... 4 years later... XD

Re: The mythical chat room!

The forums are for-profit, there is no incentive to fix anything and it would cost money, when they get plenty of ad revenue from visitors who find this place via Google.

This forum is running software from 2008. Don't expect it to be fixed, ever, without a radical overhaul.

Re: The mythical chat room!

I can see the idea of not having a chat room on this forum. The forum is a success just now why change it?

Imagine the bother the mods with have to go through to calm things down between real time impulsive thoughts made by peeps.

At least with a forum people have time to make decisions before they post it. ill reply to a post out of impulsiveness and maybe think different later...that's just me...but I'm sure there is others out there

No dude, they use those inline ads and serve them to non-authenticated users. Basically this place dominates Google hits for ADHD/ADD topics, people click those topics, David makes a few cents. He runs a couple such communities. It's not a bad business model but it's also not likely to get the chat, or anything else, fixed.
