    As we get closer to NWFA V4, we're analyzing which features we use and which might not make it to the next version. Judging purely on statistics it looks like the chat doesn't get used much, but I'd like to get some feedback rather than making the call just based on that. For those of you who don't know we have a live chat (probably quite a few of you), there's a link to it at the bottom of the page :)

    Candidly, I use it very rarely. Though the last time I was on, it was a fun and informative discussion with a couple other regulars. :)

    I wonder if it might be fun having a weekly 'scheduled' chat. We did this back when NWFA was just getting started and it was a good time.

    Honsetly, I've never used it. Seems redundant to me.

    I have talked to members that do enjoy it and hopefully they weigh in here.

    It would probably be used if more members were actually 'communicative' and enjoyed interactive communication on a variety of subjects- unfortunately it is dominated by very few members typically discussing nothing more than uninteresting topics such as redundant talk about gun builds, accessories, what someone is hoping to have someday, etc. I am one who probably logs onto the chat as part of the few that do but don't engage in the convo much.
    This might actually cause people to 'plan' a time to be on - and be more interactive and fun, with hopefully greater numbers logging on - I 2nd this!

    I prefer to "chat" on the phone.

    Doesn't seem like something that can be "fixed".

    How about if it were a voice chat as opposed to text?

    Sooooo....like a phone? :rolleyes:

    Seriously though, I don't know of any sites (besides one's dedicated to it like Skype) that do that. I haven't even heard of FB or other social media giants having that.

    Chat was gone last decade, maybe the one before that even.

    Not sure, never understood it.

    I realize this - just offering a suggestion to the OP is all.

    Same here, friend! My comment was in no way a response to anything but the op and, with any luck, will not offend anyone in the slightest.
