Have you ever thought about a live chat on here? Like fb chat? A few of the forums ive been looking on have them and thought it could be a good idea. That way when people need Quick advise they wouldn't have to wait for a response to be sent they could look on chat and see who is online and whether they can help. And Rick will need to stay online 24/7 as im sure everyone will want to talk to him

At $50.00 an hour into my paypal account I could probably work something out with you guys.

You'll have to see what Trish says about the feasibility of this idea.

If my calculations are correct (they probably arent)

$50 per hour / 2380 members = $0.02 per hour per person
$0.48 per day per person
$3.36 per week per person
$13.44 per month (based on 4 week months) per person

And that will cover 24 hour assistance from Rick over a live chat..

Any one willing to pay that much money?

The theory is good however in practise we would probably only have around 10~20 active members at any one time so you need to re-jig the figures a little :lol:

Well the most active members ive seen lately (apart from you as you shouldnt pay for your own service) are:

Ant
Wrighty
Nidz
Kathryn
Trish (Webmaster)
Diego
Lilys-dad
Janine (Joshuasmummy)
mankindben
ZUES_the_Beardie

Might be a little more expensive than I first thought.

P.s. Please dont take offence if ive missed anyone who has posted within the past couple of days.. these are just the names of people who are always on :)

Skype linkups at set times could be a thought - I see you use a photo of Leo on your Skype setup 8) .

Skype webchat is a good idea.

There could be say 1 a month and set on a topic with one of the board 'experts' on hand to answer your queries.

It's surprising how much info we give away on forums. It doesn't take much to trace someone through the internet given a few facts, with a quick look around you can probably even tell which school I went to once you've read through most of my posts.

Its probably the fact I put my second name in my username as well. And now cant change it..

It is scary how much you can find out from a person on the internet. especially when things like fb ask for everything.. dob, address (if you want to put it on), middle name, schools, workplace's etc

Rick - you were looking for something to occupy you when you retire! Weren't you? :lol: :shock:

I think live chat might not be available for this type of board, but I'll look into it when I've got a moment.
