Here are several reasons why I chose the chat rooms, message boards, etc. that I did for this website:
1. It's free: Everything used to build the Sports Chat website - (graphics, chat rooms, message boards, clip art and the web space itself) - cost absolutely nothing.
2. Easy to use: Everything on the website is pretty much self-explanatory and unless your computer isn't very good at all, you should have no problem accessing this website. Most (if not all) web browsers and operating systems should be able to handle the chat rooms and message boards.
3. Talk endlessly: The message boards allow you to keep posting as many replies to any topic as you want. The chat rooms allow an unlimited number of people in at once.
I know the chat rooms aren't perfect. For instance, you can't see who's online without actually entering the chat rooms. Also, you can't travel between rooms from the chat window (that can only be done through the home page). On the plus side, however, it's much better than having no chat at all. Enjoy!
