    any chance thephins can get something like facebook or myspace where we can have private instant messages for members? so if for example......alen is on thephins....instead of private messaging him....i could click the active people on line....and quickly bring up a private instant message chat? its pretty cool on facebook and myspace.....i know they have gigantic servers....but just seeing if its possible....thanks :up:

    well no.....pm system now is basically like email. you need to wait awhile to send anther message (after you sent the original) and instant messaging is just that.....instant!

    i just think it would be cool

    Sites grow more popular in search engines by having content that can be indexed. Since chats can not be easily indexed, we don't believe that is the best route for us. ;)

    We do offer chat on game day and for the draft, though.

    I know that this formula might not suit everyone but we are just over a year old and are the second largest Miami Dolphins site on the planet -- second only to one that has been here for 1 million years. We know what we are doing is working and, in the process, we have adhered to the highest standards for members and quality of posting. :)

    I know it isn't as desired as the IM suggestion, but I think part of the reason we have profile comments is to give us an option other than pm's to communicate.

    Or just use PIDGIN, that way you can IM anybody regardless of their IM program. :wink2:

    we are just over a year old and are the second largest Miami Dolphins site on the planet
    We may be considered the second largest----------
    BUT we are the best site with some of the most wonderful, kind and generous people anywhere.
    One just needs to go read the junk on other forums and see just how much more respectful we are here to each other.



    I want a thephins cheerleading uni! :up:

    the chat thing would be a sick idea sick. i love the IM on myspace, infact i deleted my account about a year ago and recently starting a new myspace since they got that feature on there. i mean we can go into that thread for just talkin in the lounge, but its to time consuming, so i find myself skipping it.

    Unfortunately it does us more harm than good.

    We have some other things lined up down the pipe, but IM won't be one of them. Sorry guys.

    Not a problem with me. I shut down my AIM because it's distracting and I feel rude if I don't respond. Personally, I like email or PM because then I can respond when I am in an uninterrupted mode.

    Agree completely Lisa.

    Not to mention that an open chat on a site like this becomes complete mayhem. I find myself losing interest in the chats during the games cause it just gets to crazy to keep up with it all

    You have to do maintenance to clear the box; it's not so hard. I use the new posts feature, so yes, if a PM comes in when I'm on this website, it comes up after I switch threads. I don't know if that's instant enough, but it surely doesn't distract.

    Lucky, get off your lazy arse and delete lol. Why would anyone want a robot deleting private messages that one might want to save? On second thought, maybe it could do your laundry too? :knucks:

    Hey, I can even do this Holli and I don't have any problems. I probably don't get near as many pm's as others, but I've never had a problem.

    Can we have a feature that shoot Doritos into my mouth while I'm on ThePhins? I get so tired of the wife complaining about Nacho Cheese powder covering the mouse. Not sure why it sticks there....:shifty:

    :lol: Made me crack up. Meghan's favorite chip Jimmy and Chris is always complaining because she gets the trackball from his mouse all yucky and sticky when she's in the basement using his computer. She has her own laptop that she can use at will but, for whatever reason, she prefers using daddys.

    all of the above I would assume.........................
    tough to monitor. tough to control what goes on, work wouldn't be too bad I don't think I built one in college, but maintenance I imagine would be tough. Plus once its built people will want more. Pretty soon mucks trying to find a way that we can call each other for free, as well as send in our bills all from thephins.com.

    That and it's a Dolphins message board, not a social networking site... Just being honest here, but it is what it is. You can't expect them to actually turn ThePhins.com into a Dolphins version of Facebook... that'd be cool but still.

    However I think having a chat room at all times would be a great addition. You can choose to go to it so you wouldn't get pestered or anything. I guess monitoring it would be tough, but meh... Muck and Celtkin don't need sleep anyways...
