Here is a reminder of 2 features that we have here at BBP.
Under the "Community" at the top of the screen, you will see a drop down menu that includes "chat" and "arcade," among other things.
Chat is a feature similar to Skype or Aim. It is a great way to have conversations with multiple people at the same time in the same chat box. It can be used sort of like a party line. On Skype, I can have multiple individual conversations but not a group conversation. This may be capable but I haven't figured it out. For those of you who, like myself, cannot access Skype from work, try BBP chat. It works for me!
The Arcade is a great way to kill time at home or work. Your high scores will be tracked for each and every game. There is also a tournament feature. Just choose the game you want to set up for a tournament and announce it to the world so that you can fill it up and get it started.
Just another public service announcement from yours truly.
