    My goodness I miss the chat on here.

    Anyone actually have yahoo or skype?

    I recently got skype and got back into my yahoo account.

    So let me know if anyone would like to chat. Even if it's just here:)

    pm me your skype name. :) I think that's what we all need to do. Just do one huge skype voice chat or group chat lol.
    I'll add you in the morning and we can chat when you aren't busy if you'd like ^_^

    That would be a good idea for the new chat. That would also keep out random people as well.

    Yeah, I think what would be a good idea is that those who are willing would PM others in this thread our Skype usernames(to avoid random friend requests), if we all wanted to chat with other members on the forums. Anyone who would be interested in that could just say so in this thread, and we would just trade PM's with our Skype usernames, if that makes sense.

    Probably be easiest to create an open (but not public) Google Doc with everyone's SF name and Skype name, and just PM that link to the people who want to chat instead of trying to keep a list updated to PM around.

    You can always download it for free. You don't have to have a microphone or a webcam to use it.

    I offered to install a chat server here. The site owner doesn't want to :(

    I suggest maybe we all agree on a location that is for :sf members to meet up and chat if they like. I'm not a fan of Skype because it requires actually installing Skype on the computer, so maybe tinychat? It runs in the browser and doesn't need anything other than flash.

    I did, but is there a way to have a lot of people all together in Skype? It's the only place I know of online that's a free video room that doesn't actually require video.

    No, there's not a way for multiple people to video on skype, just audio.

    There's also skickam, I've had an account with them for quite some time. That just requires making an account and logging in. Making it private is an option with passwords to come in. Moderators assigned etc.

    make a group in Skype. Stay in the group. Then people can talk all day if they want.

    I'll try to figure it out.
