Quite possibly last time I'm in chat this year. Not sure about Week 17 maybe I will be, but otherwise rest of the games will be televised this year so I'm out.

Let's make it fun watching the Falcons play till of course the last minute.

The chat room was a flop all year, not expecting anything different now :down:

I miss the original chatroom. Nice enough format that got the job done and was active. :(

Hey guys, just added new software to the site. It's called NowTalk.

Anytime you visit the site's front page, it will appear floating at the bottom of your screen, 24/7!

Just gave a brief test drive, and it appears to chat you have to sign in in order to post anything (to keep spammers and bots away). But you can use Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google + accounts to do so (maybe others too, I'm not sure since those are the only ones I have), or you can register with NowTalk (which is quick and easy). My recommendation is that if you want to use your forum username & password, just register on NowTalk with it, for easy identification.

This will replace the game day chats. I'm might wind up working on something that will keep me away from the chats on game days, so I probably won't be around, but let me know what you guys think and if it will suffice, and if I need to work out any bugs.

I hope this works/satisfies all those that missed the chats.

The only issue I have seem to come across is if you navigate away from the front page, it will bounce you from the chat. But I guess that is what tabs and new windows are for on browsers.

You can pop out the chat room into its own small window, but if you navigate away from the front page it will close as well. A small quirk, but basically if you open a tab/window on the front page, pop out the chat, and open another tab/window to do any surfing you want to do, then it should be fine.

YES! Finally a new chat, the memories of 2010 season will never be forgotten from everyone going crazy about an Abraham sack or Roddy making another tough catch. The best was when Fungus would type slow, every time Turner carried the ball. That was in 2010, could you imagine him last year? Anyway hope people actually go into the chat, if they are at home. I'll be in there for games that aren't on primetime most of the time.

Will be in there for Saints and Dolphins for sure.

Can't find chat with iPad or any of the three browsers on the desktop computer. I get an error on the bottom of the page. Is there a link or is it tied to the front page?

I had no trouble with the chat loading on my desktop in 3 different browsers: Safari, Firefox, and Chrome.

I did not get it to load on the 2 browsers I tried on my Android tablet: Chrome and Skyfire.

It should be noted that it is the last thing that loads when you go to the front page. So you might have to give it a minute before it pops up.

But it is anchored to any of the site's main pages, whether that is falcfans.com, falcfans.com/roster, falcfans.com/schedule, etc.But remember you cannot navigate away from the page or else it will bounce you. So if you want to continue surfing while chatting, my suggestion is to pop out the chat (click on the diagonal arrow) in the open chat window, and then open a brand new tab in your browser to begin your usual web surfing.

So what did people think of this week's chat experience? Saw 4 or 5 people show up on Sunday.

I know Wease was having some bugs with his browser and iPad. I checked it out on my Android tablet, and also was having some issues with it. Any other issues people can report that I can try and get fixed in the next few days before Sunday?

I always enjoy the chat, but as many of the out of Georgia fans without Direct TV can attest too, half the time my computer is catching a crazy feed from Europe and even having one extra window open means failure. Hope to see you ladies soon and check out the new format.

FalcFans readers:

Thanks for using Nowtalk and providing us with your valuable feedback. Responses to your questions:

Pudge- Great points about navigating from page-to-page and opening new tabs, we'll definitely keep them in mind as we improve our user experience. Navigating from page-to-page shouldn't boot you from the chat if you are signed in- but the chat does need to reload. If you want to remain signed in after closing a tab with the chat, check off "Stay Signed In" in the sign in menu before signing in. You should now be signed in when reopening the tab with the chat. Please send me an e-mail at abie@nowtalk.com so we could troubleshoot the booting- that isn't happening on our end. Apologies for the inconvenience and thanks for bringing it up.

Wease- We're releasing mobile and tablet versions next month. Currently you can use Nowtalk on FalcFans.com from a computer, it should show up on the bottom right corner of the website in your browser. Sign up for our newsletter on Nowtalk.com to be immediately notified when Nowtalk becomes available on iPad, it's not too far off.

DaveWaz- We agree with you, nobody wants to open more tabs. Nowtalk turns Falcfans.com into a social venue without needing to go anywhere else- its right on the page.

If anyone has any more questions about Nowtalk, I'd be happy to answer them. Your feedback helps us improve our product and we're grateful to receive it. We look forward to building an interactive, realtime community on FalcFans.com.

Also, check out Nowtalk.com/FantasyFootball to chat with other NFL and fantasy football fans.

Feel free to shoot me an e-mail at abie@nowtalk if you have any more questions or suggestions.

Go Falcons,
-Abie Axen

P.S. I'm a lowly Jets fan that wouldn't mind seeing Tony Gonzalez get a ring before he calls it quits.

My personal preference is to use the "stretch" feature on the left top corner. It makes it bigger (like a webpage) and in effect, makes it a separate tab for easy navigation. I like it. I also prefer the creating the nowtalk account because I can set my name to my account name here for easier recognition. If I were to make a suggestion it would be for a way to link nowtalk to our screennames here without needing a separate account.

Surprised by the lack of turnout on a nationally televised game. Only 4 people in chat! Guess our hard core fans must have better Sunday night plans.

Disappointing.
