    I've added a chatroom to the site. You'll notice at the top of the forum a status line that will tell you how many people are in the chat room, also their user names. It's very quick and easy to register, 1 click registration, no email validation or anything like that.

    The idea behind this is more of a social chatroom rather than a photography discussion chatroom. In other words try to keep most of the photo related talk within the forums, because that way it is better organized and accesssible. If you do have a great photo realted discussion, feel free to copy it from the chatroom and paste it into a forum post.

    If you have any issues with the chatroom, please email admin@apug.org, or post a comment in the feedback forum. Thanks and enjoy!

    Sorry, folks. Had trouble with integrating the chat room status on the forum. It might have broken forum access for a few minutes. If you want to access the chatroom until I get the script fix, you can access it here:

    I've been making some tweaks to the chatroom. I've made it into a smaller popup window. This way it's not so big, and now you don't have to look at the status bar on the bottom refreshing every 5 seconds (i found that annoying). I just have to make a few more minor adjustments and I think it's done.
