Dear members we searched the
"Net".. high and low.. and believe we
have found the best talk / chat software
available to compliment our members web-site.
Unlike the old chat area of our first message
board this one resides on our web server.. free
of junk ads and time lags.
We are calling this area "Members
Talk" oppose to members chat... the reason..
well.. lets just say we as a group are a little
"different" than the rest.. after all..
don't we all drive.. the
Road Machine ?
A Quick Look
One of the neatest features of
phpMyChat 0.14.5 is the detachable
"navigator"that you can detach from the chat
area.. close the chat area down and leave it
("navigator") on your desk top while
either reading over the DQCog web-site.. the
forums or surfing the "Net". When a
fellow member enters the chat area... prepared to
"chat".. you will see who the member is
as well as what area of the live talk he is at...
if the navigator is behind your current window.
and you have your sound card on.. you will
definitely know your not alone, when
some one enters the membes talk area.
For those members
who.. already have experience with using a chat
area.. or for those who don't but want to get
started there are 3 things you need to to to jump
1. Even though you
are a member.. you still have to register. 2. After you have registered you have to
enter your username and password. 3 Choose an area of discussion or create
you own topic area (chat room)
We have created
some "starter areas" to pre-isolate the
topics of discussion related to the Dodge Dakota
Quad Cab: Modifications... Accessories...
Performance... Garage... Chapters... Rallies..
Meets.. Outdoors... Hobbies. The General area is
where you can park yourself until your ready to
jump into something more specific. Though the
many areas may seem a little widespread at this
time... down the road... you just never know.
How Do I Know.. When To
A quick way to see if it's worth
going to the members chat area is to check the
forum front page.. check to see how many users
From here you can.. click on the
"currently browsing" link to get to the
section of the page.. pictured below.
Here you can check to see what
members are online.. and compare it to the list
of members that are explained below.
Though a chat type area offers
many possibilities...one of the most disappointing
things about a chat area is that when
you finally get up enough nerve to go
there... there is either... no one
there.. or no one you know.. or no one.. you
would like to really talk to.. and who knows..
what.. knuckle heads are listening in on your
Is It Safe To
Not to worry...
the chat area is DQCog members restricted..
meaning.. were all from the same.. family! ...
well if that doesn't make you feel secure.. all
members are on file and most of them seem reasonably
sane... to me. Did I mention you need
access codes to get in the chat area?
Be sure to go to: DQCog... Chapters... Members...
Meetings... Rallies... Chats if you
haven't already.. and let us know.. you
are interested in using the "Live
Talk" area. We are using this area to get
our "Talk" times
organized and to meet
and get aquatinted with the members you
will be talking and making friends with.. as well
as their interests of discussion and the times
they are likely to be on-line. Also..
once we get... a bit more organized.. we will be
scheduling regular live talk sessions on a weekly
or monthly basis.
If you have any problems using or accessing
this new chat area.. go to the above link and
post a message.. either one of the members will
help you out.. or I will.
Make sure you have enabled Java and
have enabled Java script on your Internet
