Default Previous chat room software

OK, I'm not feeling warm and fuzzy these days about spending time and money on the site since I seem to just get trashed by a few members for doing my job.

But, if you guys really want the old chat software back, here's my deal.
The license for one year of the old software is $125.

Send your contributions via PayPal to me at kensmith @ blackjackinfo.com
(remove the spaces of course)

Once we get to $125, I'll buy the Professional Plus license at http://www.addonchat.com/products.html
That's the version that integrates automatically with vBulletin.

Don't let the vocal minority get you down. Everyone here greatly appreciates the work you do! :

I like a lot of the new features. I was waiting patiently for the kinks to get worked out. You should do a poll. I know this is not a democracy but if it is only a very vocal minority that wants to regress, it would be a shame for you to have to knuckle under to them.

Maybe what really needs to be done is for you to chat with us, Ken, about your future with the site, BJ info, and what you want to do and what you are feeling. Maybe the site has become to much work with too little reward. The recent events on the site have been very serious and no doubt have rocked the site, and have hurt it. Mistakes have been made, and they have been made all around. The main thing is have we all learned from them and do we have the energy left to pick ourselves up, dust off and try again,,,maybe so,,,but maybe not.

I for one, have always felt bad that there has been no paid site here like GC, but far more secure and exclusive. I felt bad that you were not receiving money from such a page, just from the advertising, and I have no idea what you are getting out of that as well as book sales,,,is that enough to hold your interest?

As to the Chat, I liked the old format fine, had some great guest's, good times. I also found myself spending way too much time there and had to cut way back, it was impeding my other work. Hated the new format.

I have noticed more advertising than before. The site is probably getting more hits from the recent drama. That should mean more profit. The site wasn't hurt just some feelings were temporarily aroused. People reexamined their life and live more for the moment. People who hold onto this kind of stuff cause their own misery and misery to others. Life is too short for that kind of self imposed negative EV.

I really appreciate the fact that Ken makes his profit from advertisers and not his members!

Actually the recent drama is more likely to reduce long-term traffic, not the other way around. But whatever.

Enough about that.

I see that AddonChat now offers an additional mobile device option for an extra $35.
Based on the poll responses so far (9 for the old version and 3 for the new), it looks like I should buy another year of the old software and ante up for the mobile option as well.

The mobile option would be very awesome, I usually end up posting on the forums from my blackberry, but find that I cannot chat in the chat room.
