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

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..

Hey, no worries at all! Currently, the app is a PITA in my opinion. Working to get a dedicated one. You have to get the Tapatalk app and then search for Prison Talk Online and that's how it is used currently.

Just think... Once you finally get into the swing of things, we'll be upgrading to a new type of forum software!! lol.. Then we can learn it all again together.
It is VERY similar to what we are running now, but with a TON of new features, so don't sweat it.. You won't even need a mobile app to use the new site on any mobile device.

I love the app! It's streamlined and I can easily check up on the threads I've commented on (you know, because I have no life)! A huge thanks to all working tirelessly on this site!

The only thing that is pain so far is sometimes I hit the like/thank button by accident as I scroll with my finger and it does not not deselect by hitting it again. Not too bad a problem, just more thanks lol

beverly,

I moved your post to the thread that addresses this. For now, you can download an app called Tapatalk and search for Prison Talk Online (spelled out, not the PTO initials).
