Chatroom
We now have a live chatroom on the board. You might have noticed at the bottom of the page it shows the last comment in the chatroom. Just click on the green + symbol (bottom left) to join in chat.

This was set up mainly for live match chats but you can use it for anything really.

RE: Chatroom
Just one suggestion actually. It'd be cool if you could extend the word wrap on the chat to allow a little bit more to be typed per message.

RE: Chatroom
^ i get where you're coming from on this one, and personally, got to admit that i'm a bit torn. i love the functionality and quick pace of the chat, perfect for play by play calling. then again, i also liked when i'd miss a match away from the computer and went through the comments on here - it'd usually give me a better feel of the match than any of the journo recaps. what i try to do personally is use the chat for the quick play by play thoughts, and stuff that has more lasting substance goes into the thread.

I like going through the posts to get a sense of how things go down when I miss a match. Like today, I would have loved to go through the posts giving me the breakdown of Haas-Isner match...like reading a screenplay. But I go to the match day page, almost nothing...I kinda miss the old ways, nothing against the chat...

The thing with the chat is that it isn't related to any single match, people have been talking about all manner of things on there - different sports, various matches at the same time. I'm sure more people will post general considerations on a thread once as we go deeper into the final week.

RE: Chatroom
^I think this is right. I actually like the fact that we can talk about all matches, ATP and WTA, at once, too. It integrates the community. If someone missed a specific match, and wants a more detailed analysis, there's always someone to accommodate on the specific threads. I like the Chat Room a lot.

RE: Chatroom
The chat is absolutely great, but I do agree we lose something with not being able to read back a match or read funny comments or something. I don't have a solution for the problem though, I think the advantages of the chat outweigh the loss. Perhaps people can just try to post on both. Like at the end of a set or something. But the jokes will be lost.

RE: Chatroom
The only way to have both of them is if you could archive the chat thread daily and keep the archives through the end of each tournament.

Brit, Is it possible?

RE: Chatroom
Honestly is there a way to save the archives Brit ? I miss a lot of the matches and I dont get how the match felt . A description after it ended just doesnt have the same feeling really compared to the what you see actually in front of you . Also you can read archives also from years ago if its in a thread . You get a feeling about the classic matches

We've taken the chat down after feedback and review. We might bring it back for specific big matches and then archive the comments in a thread.

RE: Chatroom
the 'chat' on chat disappeared into the floating void..once it had gone offscreen,

a bit like the viddiprinter burping out the football results on grandstand.
