    This site needs to have a chat room so people can ask/answer questions about property investing in real-time.

    If there can’t be an official chatroom on the website, it’s not difficult to set up a room on IRC (eg Austnet).

    I would love to talk to people in real time. Forums are great, but sometimes you just want to have a nice chitchat with people.

    Would it step on anyone’s toes if we set up a chatroom on IRC?

    I have 5 years experience running a chatroom for shares. I dont think a chatroom for property would work well. The share market is open 6 hours, so the bulk of conversation occurs during this period. The property investors are likely to chat after hours, which would make it hard to string together a conversation. From a social perspective it would be good. I would probably listen in if you do get one off the ground, and would be happy to support it.

    Hi,

    We are looking at bolting on a chat room at a later date, but it would only be open a selected times to discuss a particular topic so that it could be like a mini online seminar.

    This may be some time though.

    Bye,

    Steve McKnight

    I like that idea, it stops it becoming just a social lounge for rubbish.

    I like the seminar idea..[:D]

    but it would be hard to arrange times that most of us can be online at the same time…

    Unless we have a seminar room, and advertise the forum times in the MEDIA forum board…[;)]

    and also have a 24/7 room for those that just want to chew the fat at weird hours..

    to keep everyone happy [:D][:D]

    G’day all,

    Somersoft forum has a pretty good chat room. Always someone about willing to chat about almost anything…

    Use mIRC or use the chatroom link in the forum home page…

    “Welcome to the Investment Property Chatroom (#ipchat), watto!

    When you enter the chatroom, you will be identified using your preferred nickname: watto.
    If you want to change your preference you need to edit your profile (in the user control panel).
    At the bottom of the page in the “Additional Information” section, you can enter your preferred nickname in the “Chat Nickname:” field. Hit the “Submit Modifications” button to save your changes.
    You can use your forum nickname if you wish, or you can choose a totally new name.
    Alternatively you can change it temporarily once you are in the chat using the /nick command.
    By entering the information into your profile, you won’t need to change it every time you enter the chatroom.

    For example, once in the chatroom, to change your nickname to stuart, you would type:

    /nick stuart

    When you enter the chatroom, if your nickname is already taken, you will be assigned a random nickname that may look something like “s15678”, you should use the /nick command to choose a new nickname.

    Note: To use this chat feature you must be using a Java enabled browser such as Netscape Navigator 3.0 (or higher) or Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0 (or higher).

    The first time you use the chat software on your machine, you will be asked for permission to install and run it. Please grant the permission when the pop up window appears from Netscape or IE. The window will say something similar to: “Do you want to install and run “jIRC applet” signed on 15/02/2002 6:29PM and distributed by: JPilot Software Company”… you MUST click on “yes” to allow the chat to work !

    You can also access the #ipchat channel with any IRC client. Just point it to irc.blitzed.org:6667 and join the #ipchat channel. You can download an IRC client from http://www.mirc.com/. “

    Come in and join us all…

    Cheers
