These will let you receive push notifications (if you chose) when someone PM's you, responds to a thread you are subscribed to, etc.

I'm sorry this has taken so long!
is it up and running yet?

It is. I've been using it for close to a week, I think.

We previously had our own dedicated chat rooms for a number of years. That was easy enough to setup even back then, but properly moderating what took place in live chat became very difficult and time consuming. The one thing I liked the very least was when the occasional 'male' showed up, who usually had no actual relation to the prison system, and would try and take advantage of the women here at PTO. It is not the moderator's job here to protect everyone, in every way, but the very last thing that PTO will ever become is a predator's hookup site for inmate's loved ones..

Beyond that, when problems occurred between regular members, we would have to sift through huge chat logs just to get to the bottom of the situation. I've always liked the idea of live chatting with people but it just ended up not being worth it here.

Maybe after the upgrades we'll revisit it, but the one in the app is on the chopping block, for now..

I totally get how a chat room could be a nightmare to moderate. I know a lot of people would enjoy chatting though so I wonder if someone set up a chat room off this site if they would be able to be directed to it with a disclaimer that it isn't associated with PTO at all and use at your own risk? Just thinking out loud.

Something I'm up for discussing once we get all the upgrades finished here..
Maybe even offering it again with a higher threshold (post count) to get it..
