Hello all!
I am trying to gather info to help me make a decision about the site... The decision is basically about priorities. Having a chat room on TamaTalk is somehting a lot of people wanted for a long time. We tried some others before the current one but they slowed the whole server down and made the entire site miserable to use (which is why we stopped using them). We ended up moving to using Addonchat's chat service since they host it (which kept our server running smoothly) and it still allowed people to log in with their TamaTalk account. The one catch is that Addonchat costs money ($125 per year) to keep running. The bad economy is making this difficult for a lot of people and this includes TamaTalk. Basically, I don/'t know if I can afford to pay for the chat once our current year expires in late April...

I wanted ask people stuff about chat.

Please reply with the following answers:
Do you use it?

-Yes, sometimes... But when I use it, I really have fun, chatting with members, and sometimes MODERATORS!

-As long as my parents let me. :)

-HORRIBLE! :) I'd never get to have the chance to once and for all see Binary or OsuMesu21 on TamaChat!

Keep TamaChat, Please! ;)

I've noticed the Chat has been quiet for some time - especially when a whole bunch of regular chatters started to use mibbit instead.

TamaCHAT is definitely not used as much as it was (say) 6 months ago.

Do you use it?- No not really I have only been on twice since I have been a member
How long do you usually stay on it?- Well the 2 times I have been on about 15 minutes.
How would you feel if it went away?- Personally, it wouldn't bother me that much. The timesI have been on I haven't seen a lot of members on. I think that if the bad economy is hurting the ability to keep it running, maybe just don't renew it just yet and then come back to it later when it wont be an issue. ;)

Do you use it? - Every Day, usually.
How long do you usually stay on it? - I stay on for about 5 hours, or more. [I do take breaks, for about two minutes...]
How would you feel if it went away? - I'd be devastated. I'd lose friends.

...Wrong account. Sorry x.x

Do you use it? YES! D=
How long do you usually stay on it? ...Um, I don't want to say, so we'll say a few hours.
How would you feel if it went away? I'd be upset. TC has a lot of memories...

I use TC everyday, and I do chat to my friends elsewhere, but TC is still where I met them.

I drop in when I can.

Sure I'd miss it if it were to not be there.
Maybe kill it for one year? Tough to say.

Maybe if there is enough interest, we could get people to donate to keep it open? I guess I'd rather see donations going to keeping TamaTalk it's self alive.

I use it all of the time. My friends live there.</3
I stay on there for hours on end... I would stay there all day if I could. But apparently my parents find me spending half of my breathing hours inside talking to people nowhere near me is unhealthy. I have no idea who taught them logic.
I would die if it got closed. I would wear a black armband and not leave my bed for a week. I love TC D: Half of the people in my cellphone's contacts list I met through TamaCHAT.<3
I need it.
Please.

Do you use it? Yes, I do. 5 days a week. I don't go on every day because I don't have a lot of time.
How long do you usually stay on it? 2 hours. But when my mom tells me to stop, then I have to.
How would you feel if it went away? Bad! But I understand, money is getting low. Maybe we could take it off for 1 year.....then when Tamatalk gets some donations then put it on.

What about one of those mini chat box things that you see around the internet?
though you do need to make a new account at least you can put it on the main page without slowing down!


I have not heard of tama chat untill now.. so yeah..

I use it everyday I'm on TT for the most part.
I stay on for about 1-6 hours, depending on the time I go on.
I'd be pretty disappointed if it was gone, but I'd totally understand.

I don't use it.
I went on once, and was bullied beyond belief lol. I stayed on for 3 minutes trying to get people to shut up about me and others.
I would be quite happy if it went away!

Do you use it? Yes. I get on as often as I can. It's tough with my school and track schedule, but anytime I'm home, I'm on Tama Chat.
How long do you usually stay on it? Hours on end.
How would you feel if it went away? I'd be devestated... I don't know where I would be able to freely babble to all of my TT buddies. D':

I understand if you have to take Tama Chat away, but I really really hope that you don't have to. D':
