It takes a while for them to reply since they are not online, if they were online their reply would be fairly quick (we've had some conversations in some of the games go by pretty quick).
In the end not enough people tend to be online enough for this to be worth it.
Also we have no access to change the site....so....
Speaking of which why does this section even exist? Just to allow people to dream?
How is it that you always explain things perfectly? :) (oh, but you do have a spelling error: 'he/she thinks we're ignoring their comments')
See? I cause no harm. There really wasn't anything worth pointing out anyway.
Personally, I think that if you want an instant messaging program like Chatango, use an instant messaging program like Chatango. The odds of this site getting a new update within a year are approximately the odds that Bob will come back and make a good game. And I can tell already that the admins probably won't be too keen on this idea.
*bump* I also say no to a chatroom...
