Curious Thought about NFL Sundays: Question for the elders of SF. Has the site ever considered posting a thread for live discussion on Sundays during the NFL season?

Well, there was a chat site that we used to hang out at on various game days, but it's been a while since we've been there: Campfire. Maybe you can talk people into using it again. Usually, in the past, someone post here in the Locker Room that they were starting a Campfire chat, but as I mentioned before, it's been a while since anyone has done that.

I was on the campfire chat site today and it was the first time anyone had been in the NFL "room" since the Super Bowl. I was also idling on #sportsfilter on the IRC channel.

For information on the various chat sites, check the much-ignored (especially by rcade) wiki (entry on chat).

Maybe I'm admitting my lack of computer knowledge here, but why not just post a thread in the locker room each Sunday and chat here?

That was kind of my thought as well, Bo. I mean, I have an IRC channel thing on my comp, but I would think it would be easier to keep it within the sight. I'll definitely check the Campfire chat out next week though to see if anyone's around.

well, chatting in the locker room means constantly hitting reload and making it difficult to keep up in "real time." I am not sure how rcade has the server set up. Does the site update ASAP?

The campfire and the IRC channel are on servers other than SpoFi which may be a good thing.


Anyone is welcome to do what they want, but campfire and IRC are set up for real-time chat.

I'm up for the RT chat when I'm able, terrapin, I've joined you before. Sundays it is.

I'll join you as well, assuming I'm near a computer Sundays.
