New Radios-TV service launched today

Access is for registered members only. This service allows for live, dynamic chats to take place, when a threaded forum discussion is not appropriate or suitable. Members also have the ability to initiate their own private one-to-one chat rooms. You must be logged in to view any of the sessions, public and private.

Public Chat

The public area is a free-for-all room, for all members to partake.

Private Chat

Great for one-to-one sessions, especially when working with a mentor on a particular fault. It saves getting all those confusing multiple ideas from loads of people in an open thread.

Ratters can use the membership directory, on the left of the ratchat window (on a pc), to search and locate a particular member, then invite them to a private chat room. Just clicking on the member will automatically open a new private chat room. Anything typed in the rooms are private, even from me!

General Info

Newly registered members do not have access to RatChat until they have made 5 posts.

All messages, files and images shared either in the public or your private rooms, are cleared out every 24-hours. The private rooms remain longer

When online, notifications are sent via e-mail informing you that you have received a new live chat. These are sent every hour.

Members might find this service useful, I know I will.

I have previously, brainstormed TV projects with john in a real-time chat environment. This achieved by the use of Facebook Messenger, a service I will be ceasing to use. Via that tool we shared ideas, files, images, and even video in a scratch-pad type environment, before then bringing the coherent results to a forum thread.

This new service is not there to replace the forum, nor the private messaging system, but to complement them both. Others may find this new service of similar use, just as John and I found using external services such as FB messenger very useful, for exactly the same. The difference now, is this can all be achieved within the ecosphere of Radios-TV VRAT.

Today Ratchat has failed and for a service hardly used, I cannot be bothered to invest time finding out why, as only three people ever used it (one of them being me). Therefore, I have decided to end the service. It was never used for group-wide live chats, so was pretty much redundant, as the new VRAT PM system offers everything you could need for a one-to-one, real-time, private live chat and with attachment abilities.
