While you are on Crappie.com this time go sign in the chat, open another windows to surf the site.
If you are lucky you can bump into guides, tournament anglers, crappie pros, jig dealers/makers, Crappie rod designers, Rod holder company reps, Crappie tournament directors, Association presidents, teachers, fishing show producers and many more. Why more of you don't drop in beats me...

Please don't remove it because of a few idiots. Most of us are adults on this site. Some may not choose to conduct themselves as such. The chat is only busy from 8pm -10pm. Most of the regulars are there at those times. I don't get in there as much as I have in the past but I do know some good people chat in there. I've seen disputes. I was even in one of them. ;) We even lost some posters from the board because of egos. Posters that had knowlege to share with us novices. You get to kinda see more into a member by chatting there. Questions get answered faster, plans get made, and deals are finalized in the chat room.

Being semi-computer illiterate, I got no idea how to do what you talked
about, but maybe I'll figure it out. :confused:

I have seen other chat rooms be shut down because of the foolishness of a few. There have even been websites shut down for that reason.

I have not been able to get on the chat for some time, but sure like being able to touch base with fellow chatters form time to time.

Everyone who visits my web page I can see there IP address in a report if I want to. Let me know alot about who visits for marketing infor.
Lets me know if my ex is checking up on my web pages also. Told her to stay off of them.

Hey Moose:

If a person is using a network hub or router will their IP address always be the same? What about wireless access? Just wondering.

I've been to chat a few times, but never when anyone else was in there. One thing might bear mentioning...I log on and post from my computor at work, and at home, so you'd get different IP addys depending on my location.

Moose>> Now you have took this thread over my head. lol
Hope all works out in the chat room. I'll check the IPs. I sure wish I was able to catch more of you guys in there but I don't get on until yall leave most nights. The winter is when I get a chance to chat with all of you. Hope to chat with you all at one time or another.
Tight lines to ya!

Out of curosity, I ran the test Moose talked about. I am running Win XP, wireless through a router and a cable modem. My IP addy stays the same. I don't know if the router hides it from the outside world or not.

i went to chat and signed in as papasage and it showed up and went in another name and the same #came up will it do the same if i use another computer .like the one i have at work . [now inthe shop]

yes please leave the chat and when some one is using another name just ignore what they are saying . usealey we can tell the difference becouse we know each othe and that we talk to enough to catch some imposter maby ed can or some one can do something to keep imposters out
i do go there some but most nights i have to go to bed at 9:00 and dont have time .but i do like to read the history
don`t jump to a bad conclusion to what some one sayes . just wait and see . . anyway what some one sayes something that is their opinion . they might not like my opinion either. ithat is why i keep them to myself . it will just lead to bad feelings .

I have just quite going into the chat room since the trouble, awhile back. I don't personally know very many of the members so until there is a feature that id's chatters by crappie.com name I will stay on the message board.

Moose: The cable companies often change the ip numbers to
help with security issues. My cable company seems to change it
everytime I need to remotely access it...and when I don't, it seems
to stay the same for ages. I think Comcast tries to change them
every month or so...sometimes, more often....so its a good indicator..but not absolutely positive.

No worries. I won't get rid of it till I have a solution. I let a lot roll off my back, I'm not worried about anything! Hey, I'm even in the chat now!
