    I think I do too, i had a different name way back then, all of the threads where strung like windows file system does it. had it's advantages.

    Jack yeah it was but we lost lots of interesting characters, overall forum feels different today but it is certainly easier to access information..

    Its was a bit of fun while it was around but was open to abuse so it was eventually shut down.

    There's a real balance there somewhere. Its the interesting characters that develop on the forum that can make a good and entertaining read. But they can cause some trouble if not held in check..the mods can have that job.

    Re: Chat room??

    I remember the chat room, we lived out in the sticks at the time and the internet took a stubby to down load a page, so was no good for me at the time. Was about 2000 members then, would be interesting to see how it would go now.

    Re: Chat room??

    I like the idea of a chat room. It would be a good idea to have fishing related quizzes also. Stuff like fisheries regulations(size and bag), fish descriptions, boating safety, first aid etc when repeated over and over on things like quizzes really sink in. Members could post quiz questions and answers to moderators for inclusion in the quizzes.

    The amount of things I have learnt on this forum is great, the amount I forget that I would like to remember is not so great. A 5 minute quiz at the start of every hour could only enhance Angling knowledge.

    Gee that was a fair while ago.

    Im all in favour of it, but it should be called the war room & be un-moderated.

    NO, not correct.

    " Civil war " was in the forum and not in the live chat.

    The live chat was simply not continued due to lack of interest and updating / streamlining of newer forum versions.

    Re: Chat room??

    i remember when there were normally 6 to 10 people on the chat boards most nights.... I met and organised heaps of trips out with awesome fisho's mostly through the original ausfish chat... so i recon... no joke that the chat would have accounted for at least half of my pb's just cause the cool info and trips out that were organised back in the day
