What on earth is happening to the Chatrooms ?. I can remember the times when they used to be bouncing, Morning, Noon, and Nights, now, you can think yourself lucky if there's a handful in on an evening. Just of late, Mornings and Afternoons have been like the Marie Celeste in there, no matter which room you go in, there's always the same one, maybe two, just sat there, never speaking or saying hello. I realise people have jobs etc, and lives to lead, but a hell of a lot don't, and i fear, if they log in, and get no response, they'll go looking for company elsewhere. You take away all the good, caring people on here, take away all the characters, and you'll kill the site, and personally, i think that's just what's happening. Pause for thought ..........

TBH Jack i think the answer to your question is they are all using the 121 Community chat some nights there are over 60 using it. I know there are also forum user on 121 but i think the majority are chat room folk.

I love the chat rooms on Buzz. They are important to me and a real life saver as I spend so much time alone.

I think when Facebook came out, the numbers in many chat rooms dwindled across the internet.

I think it's a shame as they are great fun.

Mainly because the Forum users don't much go into the Chatrooms Blackbird, and Chatroom users don't normally come onto the Forums.

Jack; Chat rooms have dwindled over the years, they used to be fun. Even forums have dwindled. Its seems to be more dating sites nowadays. I do pop in the chat rooms now and again and as you say, no one about.
