Why does this site even bother with the chat rooms?

Asked by SQUEEKY2 (18558points) June 19th, 2019

More than half the time they don’t work, a lot of people check in but don’t check out.
Are the chat rooms worth it?
Right now they don’t work here in western Canada.

I hope they will be used when needed. Like a Fluther town hall/election/ storm/other news.

It used to be very lively. I spent a lot of time there and got to know many great people. Now it’s just a ghost of its former self…

No idea. I don’t care for the idea of chat rooms. Too fast and furious, and all over the map for my taste.

I like the regular format of Fluther when there are lots of users, lots of dedicated Mods who have the time and interest to be dedicated Mods like Auggie was, and a network of people who take down the Spam before there is more spam than regular users. Like it used to be in the heyday.

No one has ever been there or talking about anything, and I’ve checked a ton of times. I love good chat rooms.

[Mod says] They do usually work – they just don’t get a lot of traffic these days. Thanks for letting us know there’s a problem right now. We’ve let Ben know. Hopefully it’ll be fixed soon.

Meanwhile, I’ve kicked everyone. Don’t take it personally and re-enter at your own risk.

Everytime I ‘ve gone there, (except once many years ago, (where some chating, hardly though) it’s just @whoever entered, @whoever left No chatting.

They’re like your appendix squeek. Artifacts of a bygone day. But why remove it if it gives you no problems?
