It's been a year since ES started a live chat and I would like to get some feedback on it's use (I have to pay for this and don't want to continue to pay unless it's desired!)

So, do you use the chat? If so do you like it? Does it add something to the site? If not, why not?

Please let me know so that I can make a decision.

I signed up but havn't been in there.

I have msn, I don't use that often.

I prefer audio chat, to typing. I was in a newsgroup where a bunch of us had audio chats on msn. No damn typing. We set up a day and time when a bunc of us would meet up.

As far as this chat. I don't know. It's a good option to have, as long as people are using it. If it is not expensive.

I believe the option matt is using cost $*cough* :wink:

I do actually know how much it costs, but don't feel it appropriate to make it known.

Personally, I have noticed that there are quite a few people lately that have decided to start trouble with other members in chat, I don't feel we need it that much as some members have abused it, I would leave it for a while and leave an open thread where if people want it back then it comes back, but it would obviously have to be an overwhelming amount of people.

I love chat and use it all the time.

If it wasnt for ES chat I wouldn't have made some of the awesome friends I have now. I use chat ALL THE TIME If it was taken down I would be pretty damn bored.

I honestly think it is extremely valuable, alot of the trips I have been on and great experiences I have had would never have happened if it wasn't for the chat.

I know that the people I talk to in there use the forums and stuff but before chat I had no real clue who they were or what they were about, now I consider alot of them good friends.

Yes, now and again some people try and ruin it for others. But it doesnt happen often and they are dealt with.

I definatly think the good FAR outways the bad.

Haven't been there in a while because Anthony is only one I usually see in there. No offense, dude, but I want more people to talk to! :P

For the sake of everyone, I say keep it, but if it's costing you more than 50 Euros then I say screw it. Use that money to buy your family a nice gift. :wink:

If the costs outweigh the use, get rid of it Matt. I'm never in there because normally I'm doing a crapload of things while on here so I don't have time to sit and talk with people on chat. I'd like to use it more but I need the time to do it.

I've actually still never used it. I've always come here to talk via the forum, so I guess I just never saw the need to go in there.

I used to go in there a lot but lately whenever I pop in it is the same old faces and although I like to chat to some of them I don't have much to say to a lot of them.
Although it is always nice to catch up with teague and Cyn I don't think it is being used enough to warrent the cost.

Perhaps you would accept donations to keep it running, Matt?
