It's IRC. I've been to it, but it just stares at me blankly, with a sound player that I've never used.

I went there once, said "boobies", left, and never went back. Just for the sexual thrill!

Same as PJ. I've been there but it just stares at me. Doesn't seem to be much point.

You should add "Ann has a chat room?" as an option. I didn't realize they had one until this poll. But there it is, sitting unlicked under the my ANN tab: chat

I not only don't use it, I'm not sure exactly how such a thing works. I gather it is real time, but beyond that I'm a bit lost.

I have nothing else to add (except that unless someone dealt with the spambot problem, the poll is flawed).

The IRC client on the site doesn't seem to work properly, but using chatzilla it seems fine, if rather barren.

I had thought about adding one, but then this would only spark my displeasure of how the tabs are formulated and Dan's really tired of me bitching about it, so I let it go and let you guys figure out where it's at.

Speaking of Dan, I wonder if he' noticed this poll and said to himself, "Hot damn. Another feature we can drop and not support anymore."
Razz

As for the poll being flawed, this is why "No" came before "Yes" as that's the "default" answer.

I never expected a "Yes" answer, honestly. Yet someone claims to have used it.

Interesting, considering it's empty. Neutral

Bots got smarter and learned to vote for the second option!

I'm idling in there now with three other people. Everything is silent. It's kind of weird. No one else is using their ANN nick though, so I have no idea who these peoples are.

I've known we had it since I joined because I went through all the tabs, but I can't say I've "used" it because no one else was ever there; probably because, apparently, no one else knew it was there. I was actually going to ask in the BnT thread once if it wasn't working right since it was always so baron, but I decided against it for some reason. I can't use it now though since my Java isn't updated, but I guess I'll do it later.
