    I'm thinking of getting rid of Flashchat.

    We never seem to use it and it's got a lot of junky looking database tables. Since the upgraded shoutbox, we seem to 'chat' there much more often than we use the other chat system.

    What do you think?

    I use it on occasion, rather than filling three or more pages of the shoutbox with conversation. Plus, I feel better when talking more openly about things that I wouldn't necessarily share with everyone who can see the shoutbox.

    I have noticed that it's not used very much, so don't keep it based on my experiences.

    If you use it, I'll keep it around. Not that big of a deal. Plus, you do know exactly who is viewing it for privacy sake.

    Done deal. I'm just always looking to prune thing I don't think we use and other others to see if we like them. Need to keep it interesting for a wide spectrum of folks...

    Tracy and I have had several good chats on it. I wish more people would use it. I kind of like it. [dunno]

    I drop in from time to time and if if can catch anyone in there hang out and shoot the breeze. I think that it offers a different deal than the shout box since you know who will see it and also it tends to be more instant, at least when Im on it seems like there is no one on the shout box to really keep a conversation going, its more like just a thread that is in tangent so you say hi and play of the other posts but dont generaly have conversations.

    One thing I notice is that most of us have a yahoo or MSN account listed we could always use that
