    I think sailing in chat should only be on fri - sun for normal NPers. But for elevated paid accounts, they could have some kind of weekday privilege. Thjat helps NP out because more ppl will buy upgrades just because they want to sail... in chat. And eveyrone knows the x,xxx sails happen in np chat, ya.

    But tbh, the mass bumping of NP auctions should be enough, u know? No need to pollute chat by new accounts. Leave the daily spam to gold accounts and above.

    Overall, I'm in favor of allowing more so than not. Maybe even everyday.

    Also allow hyperlink formatting in chat at least so posters can make the domain name they are selling be the link. Would keep long ugly hypertext references from clogging up chat.

    Also, what about having two chats? One with selling/buying and the other regular chat with no sales.

    Just out of curiosity, has anybody actually sold a name they posted in chat that you can tie to it being posted there?

    I never really understood it.

    I've checked it out before and it always looks like sellers in chat. You can't link out to outside places, only to Namepros, so you're just linking to an already existing thread.

    So, if I was a buyer, I would simply go to the forum and look thru the threads. I wouldn't hang out in chat hoping somebody would post a name I'm interested in, that already exists in a thread.

    Surprisingly even NP chat is google indexed ......yes I have found chat records in google searches .....yes I have sold names via chat at wholesale price of course....so just remember that savvy endusers may be able to see that xx or xxx offer you posted in chat on your market listed xxxx bin.

    Chat is boring every day so selling chat actaully gives chat a purpose.

    It's a free advertisement on the right side of (almost) every page of NamePros. It enables a greater potential for someone to see it than could be achieved otherwise. For example, a thread can be bumped a few times a day, but in chat, it can be posted every 15 minutes during the weekends.

    It's difficult to know how effective it is because it depends largely on timing, how often the seller posts it in chat, the buyer informing the seller that they found their thread from chat, etc.

    But if you have the time, it doesn't hurt to use the free service.
