Virtual Pub

Post by Windoe »

Crazy idea I know, but a chat room for a virtual pub where we can shoot the breeze over a drink or three. Most likely need to auto delete history in case alcohol loosens the keys too much!

I'm not against the idea.
My memories of the chat room on the old site remind me that he who taps fastest shouts above us two finger tappers :)
And the chat then gets corrupted, disjointed and pretty soon no-one can be bothered.
Leading to sad and lonely shouts from the chat room that go unanswered for weeks or months.
Anyone elses thoughts?

A virtual pub might be quite nice for a chat :+1:
I'm sure that everyone is friendly enough to keep it civilised! :lol:

Zoom?
That sounds like the new fangled internet gubbins to me.
It may be alright for a buisiness meeting, with or without lockdown, I am unsure of a virtual pub., even audio only. :?: :?: :?:

This appears to be a possibility. Is this desired?
Have you tried turning it off and back on again?


If it’s broken, it might be my fault, is my responsibility and there is even a slight chance I can fix it 😳

I was thinking publish a time, 5 mins before post link to zoom/teams etc.

Users can connect if they want. Video or not. Silly hat or not.

Once done, link gets deleted.

I am working on this and have tested 2 solutions.

1 refuses to install and the second breaks the board.

Still testing options
Have you tried turning it off and back on again?

I had a real pint of draught Guiness yesterday and so it wasn't lonely
on the way down, I sent a few after it just to keep it company on the
way down.
