The RootsChatterBox uses Macromedia Flash towork.
You can download the latest (and free) version of Flash at:

http://www.macromedia.com/downloads/

It might be because possibly your flash installation is out of date or some way not installed properly (but I'm not sure really).

Grandad James,

Yes the "Southerners" one was put in as a joke. :)

We can certainly add more rooms as we need to - any ones in particular?

If we add too many rooms too quickly we will end up with one person in each room and nobody talking to anybody though...  ::)

Hi,
Yes I understand and will make a suggestion should it seem that there are several chatters with the same interest in the future.
I seemed as if Essex could be one to consider in view of last nights chat,although my actual interest in Essex  is limited.
As you suggest I think it will evolve over time .
I am very supportive of the whole Rootschat concept .Great resource..
