CD, I was just giving an opinion.  I am entitled to that.  Also, Todd may speak up for himself.  Nowhere do I see anything about liabilities.

It's no skin off your nose that it isn't open more hours, you don't even go there I don't think. 

And as far as weirdos go, the tntea thing is something that occurred outside of the lottery post in her personal life that propelled him in here. I really don't think "weirdos" frequent this place much.

I enjoy input from other members.  I have gotten quite a few wins off of Sunday Chat.  I would like to see it more often. 

That is my opinion as someone who uses it.

Sandy

    Maybe the platinum members can be the mods.

    Never used the chat yet though because the only time I would have on Sunday would be late at night (12am) due to my job.

      Todd has already explained the problems associated with having a chat room open 24 hours.  There are liabilities that he, rightfully so, doesn't want to risk.  Look what just happened to tntea.  That weirdo that is bothering her would love to have a chat room open 24 hours.  I don't use the chat room, but I support having it for a limited time so it can be controlled.

          Sandy,

          I think you had a fabulous idea with the expanded chat capabilities for premium members.  Thank you for coming up with that, I really appreciate it!  I will definitely look into that option.

          Also, your comments about more people not taking advantage of all the extra features that gold and platinum offer hit the mark.  Someone will throw away $80 in a heartbeat on some empty promises and ripped off quasi-system they find an a search engine ad, but not spend less than the cost of a newspaper on some truly powerful tools.  I think that's because many people want to believe in a "silver bullet" to winning the lottery, and don't put enough stock in real, useful tools to help themselves work up the numbers to play.

          Yes, my head shakes from time to time as does yours, but I'll keep plugging away, and I think eventually people will catch on and "get it".  I think when I can finally spend so time on some good documentation for the site, including a map of all the expanded features, that should help.

          In the meantime, I want to personally thank you for taking the time to help people see features that they otherwise would have have overlooked.  I read your posts frequently, and I notice it often.  Sorry I don't make it a point to thank you as often as you deserve. Lovies

            To those who have trouble logging into the chat on Sunday nights (stuck on the coffee cup), your firewall is probably blocking the chat capabilties.  Just disable your firewall for the time you are chatting.  If you are paranoid about letting down your firewall, just close your other windows while chatting, and when finished, re-enable the firewall.  Or, experts can simply open port 51127 in their firewall.

              This evening while everyone was busy chatting, I wrote a new troubleshooting section on the Chat page, which will hopefully help anyone who has difficulty getting in.

              By the way, I was thinking of doing a test expansion of the chat hours by changing the hours to 7:00 PM - 11:00 PM (EDT), and adding a Wednesday chat during the same hours.  Thoughts?

                  Todd, I think that is a good idea.  It's a start to test expansion.  Always need a test.......before jumping......

                  I thought we had pretty good attendance last night.  Eased my mind a bit, and I am sure yours after last Sunday.  LOL...I was telling tgirl a couple days ago how shy I am.....she laughed me out so bad and I said really.....the computer asks like a shield for me and I am better with the written word, I guess.  I have written 2 novels (was agented but not sold) and I get "wordy" when I write........chat gives me the opportunity to "come out of my shell."  In real life, I don't speak unless spoken to unless I know a person real well...then ya can't shut me up.......just like in chat.....lol......          Can you tell:  I love the Chat Room.....

                  I do enjoy the chat sessions......often I don't get there until later and I think till 11 is a good idea.

                    Cool idea, offering 24/7 as something that comes with paid memberships.  The site's already loaded with freebies for the folks who visit and use it without becoming G/P members.

                    On the other hand, I think having the chatroom open for the entire weekend might bring some curious folks in just for the chatroom, who might then become paying members after they realized what's available to Platinum Members.

                    Might be worth a shot, anyway.

                      I'm glad I talked to you Todd about this idea and I'm even happier that I took your advice and posted a poll about it. I didn't know so many people had different ideas of what to do. I'm not a paying member YET, but I like the idea of having  chat open longer for paying members. I like the new test hours too.

                      I love doubles and remember, it's just a game!!!!!!

                        Try having the Chatroom late Saturday mornings, or Tuesday evenings.

                            Todd: I was wondering if it would be most packed as people wait to find out if there was a winner in a game like on wendsday or saturday nights. Are there more people logged in during those hours?

                              how many people usually join in on an average chat session?
