We are going to work with more community managers to help us push the usage - this implementation is useful for these guys who manage groups, who can't / won't implement chat solutions on sites.

I think some of the solutions that came before get taken over by trolls / spammers, so we're going with the oAuth approach, which we believe provides better content/conversation.

The empty room issue is still going to be a big one, we hope features like "trending" and that combination with push from community managers, can help resolve that issue.

We're going to try this again!
