btw, that's why this subforum was started - to let folks know when to go into the chat room.
later, when ED went a total different direction for a while, the paltalk thing was added as a kind of replacement; though i have to admit i never tried it.
when ED came back to being more like it had been, the chat room didn't come back.
making this subforum moot.
unless the chat can be reinstated some day.
