    Default 'Members Chat'

    I know this is a long shot, but I'll ask anyway.

    Is there any way to have this changed to 'Members Discussion' or 'Members Talk' or something without the word 'chat' in the URL? Our work uses a 'big brother' filter program called Websense, and anything with 'chat' in the URL is blocked (as our IT department does not want people to visit actual chat rooms). Since it isn't a chat room, there isn't the problem - it's just I can't get to it because of that word.

    I can get to every other board on the site but that one while at work. And yes, I am a productive member of my corporation.

    My company's websense doesn't block 'chat' but blocks many video clips at my work. I can control myself without websense watching me.

    Anyways, I support this proposition!

    Hmm. Maybe your company's IT doesn't think so?

    I spent a fortune on deodorant before I realized that people don't like me anyway.

    We used to be 'Websensed' at work & had free access to work related sites & 60 minutes access to restricted sites like sport. Now it's free access to any site (well presumably not porn!) & when you've clocked more than a certain amount of time (we don't know what the 'trigger' is) our internet usage is sent to our line manager.

    I prefer being 'Websensed' at least you knew when you'd used up your time.
