We're just about done modifying Liftlines to suit our needs.
We've added real-time chat capability for registered users. Users will now find a "Chat" navigation option atop each page, and at the bottom of the Liftlines index page you'll see a list of users in chat along with another link to join in.
In addition to a few other upgrades (more Emoticons, the ability for unregistered guests to vote in polls, and some rather small changes to enhance useability) we've also added a link to email a topic to a friend. If you find a topic interesting, at the bottom left of the topic page you'll now find a link to easily email the topic for a friend to read. While you're at it, convince them to register to become a regular user of Liftlines at First Tracks!! Online!
