This is a poll to find out how many of you would be interested in opening a lottery chatroom.

      This subject has always interested me, because I'm never sure if there's a chance it will succeed.

      By succeed, I mean that it will always have a fairly good amount of people online chatting.

      I have seen other lottery sites try this, and then the thing goes empty for long stretches, and people stop in and see no one's there, and they leave.  To me, that is a failure.

      Also, chatrooms by their very nature are transitory: there is no historical record of the discussion, so the same discussion will occur, and there is no ability to research past discussions.

      I am not opposed to doing a chatroom, but I don't want to do it unless there is a huge pent-up demand for it.  Then, I would consider adding it as a Gold & Platinum feature.

        Hi Todd:

        Why not consider having the Chat Room open let's say Saturday night at 9pm until 11pm instead of all day. Of course, you would be the controller of the best time frame...or maybe even rotating time frames.

        This is just food for thought. However, I love the Lottery Post just like it is. I think a Chat Room should just be a minor addition and not take over what is already obviously working!

          How would a chat room differ from this?  If this isn't a chat room, what is it?

            pigskin this isn't a chat room this is a message board.

            In a chat room people can type and respond in a manner in which all could participate at the same time. Some chats rooms can have as many as 100 viewers communicating at the same time.

            On a message board you can only post one message at a time.

              how about a timely chat message sender ?Firstly,Everybody could send message to each other in their buddy list at any time.So It would save a great deal of time for us.secondly,this could promote the quality of the post we make,because we would have more developed ideas before posting. And whats more,Different Ideas could be  more allowed to be exchanged in time and this will get us into more civilized cyberworld .As for the convenience and usability,Its just like a simple chat messenger that keeps no historcial record.We dont have any worries about our private secrets.Lastly,The function could attract more people by adding more functions,like playing online music at LP,or any area we are willing to explore for entermainment and advertisement.we all know We still have a long way to go to win the jackpot.

                  a lottery chatroom would be nice , this way people could view one anothers cams and such send files to one another and all that i suggest more like a yahoo chatroom with the sounds and stuff, ..only because i see potential in us talking to one another "about" lottery dos and donts. it really helps to be able to talk with people who understand what your saying about systems and rules and stuff/ vs people who dont play lotto and dont know math brush you off like " your " the idiot. or maybe i am?
