I’ve had the chatroom software installed (Cometchat) and I admit that the learning curve has been a bit harder than I expected. If you stop by and try out the chat room (ETA: see the chat bar at the bottom of the page), what do you think of it? You ought to be able to try things out as a guest. If you’d like to create an account, I believe you’ll need to register on the Coyote Con site, and then Cometchat *ought* to recognize you.
I’ll be out here a lot over the next few weeks, so feel free to chat with me if you see me and let me know what you think about Cometchat!
Also, if you set up an account in the forum, you might email me (joelysueburkhart AT gmail DOT com) if I don’t approve you right away. I got spammed hard when the forums first opened so I closed open registration to approval only. If your user id isn’t easily recognized as a non-spammer, I might be slow to approve you.
