I do use both chat and private messaging. I don’t chat nearly as much or as long as I did 10 or 15 years ago, but i do make an appearance in the chat room some. It is usually just after I get home in the mornings from work and I will chat until I need to finally go to bed.
I do enjoy that our home here has a functioning chat room, as so many other sites have let their chat’s drop by the wayside over time and none of the admins even try to get them functioning again. I honestly do believe that is one of the main reasons that a lot of group sites eventually die off.-
