Sorry, I should have been more clear. No, not a game only thread...literally, a chat room. I'm wondering if there are any free services we could use. The old board allowed basically a rolling discussion flow without the entire thread and box thing going on here. There are other posts about this, just can't find any right now, sorry. I just think the old one was easier to read, with the tree system, for our large game night post-fests. I'm certainly not dumping the idea of a chat room on you RJ....I'm hoping everyone might read this and come up with something as a solution or other suggestions.
If I'm the only one that noticed the change made game nights tougher, you guys just tell me that and I'll suck it up.
As for the Google ads.....I clicked twice to try to figure out what the heck was going on, which frankly, is two more clicks than you would have gotten out of me otherwise. Keep the ????!!!goog?????? comin' I guess.
