a million times for all of you chatroom visitors
for having made this a true reunion and spreading such a wonderful
spirit ! I really hope it can stay that way - It's up to you !The
room is, what you make out of it, all of you.. so please keep
the habitual troublemakers out - don't give them any hold over
this room too like they did in the old one- put them on ignore,
if u are all doing it, it works!
Of course you can tell them your opinion and defend yourself,
the thing is, not to make this actually enjoyable for them though
- most of all they want attention and the more they can annoy
you, and make the nice folk leave, the more they'll love it...

I apologize for the current trouble with both chatrooms. If
you enter chili chat, it appears that no one can read you, or
you them. In the second room, which I had installed for precisely
this purpose, people have reported that they can't register and
it says" temporary room" The chatting in room2 works
fine though once you have entered.- Apparently this host has technical
problems too! I've mailed both of them and looked up their tech
help pages but the problems weren't listed. All I can do unfortunately,
is to wait for the hosts to solve this - Hopefully by Monday.
Please keep checking back, thank You for Your patience.
- I've added a second, different chatroom due to the current
technical problems of Multicity. So if you have problems in the
Multichat, just go to "Chatroom 2".
