You may have noticed a new item in the main menu at the top of the page: “Chat”.
This will take you to RatChat, Ratburger’s integrated chat system, implemented using CometChat. When you click the link, you’ll be taken to a chat page already logged in to the “Ratburger” chat group, which is for general discussion among members of the site. Other groups may be added for general topics or special events, but with the current paucity of members, it doesn’t make sense to further subdivide the number of people participating in chat.
There is a full-screen interface to chat, not currently linked on the site, which allows you to create groups or enter into one-to-one chat with on-line members.
