Last year, live discussions got greatly improved with "compact live". This year, we're going one step further, the chat can now be used to take part in live discussions. By posting in the chat, you are also submitting posts in the live discussion thread. This means a much smoother chat experience for you, absolutely no input delay or waiting time, whilst still getting increased post count. To make sure the chat and live thread are connected, just check the MOTD on the chat page: ^ you can see it's connected to the ROH Live Discussion. Do not use the chat for anything other than live discussions when it's in this mode. When there are no live discussions, chat will not connect to any thread (though I might change that) Enjoy!
