Those who answered the poll voted for the old original chat. So, I made the original chat, the main chat for the site, it has guest and member chat.
I am keeping the new chat, as a members only chat. There is no chat bar for this chat. You can use it from the embedded chatbox in the Dashboard, or Timeline or Profile Page or the Full page chat link and of course from the smart app on IOS or Android.
This way those who do not wish to be bothered by guests have the option to turn off the main chat and chat only with members. You also have the option of all the extra features such as voice and video chat, blocking, etc,
Hey guys / gals - the visitor / demo accounts are open to any guest to use. That said it probably is not a great idea to send them friend requests or site mail since anyone can use them. The person you friend today may not be the person using the account later.
If you see a visitor account online and have a good chat, please encourage them to join the site and get a permanent name.
