    How should i market this to get it active? It is an AMAZING* software, all on one page & instant updates using php/ajax/mysql

    Register and try it out so you know what i mean. ANY ideas whether they are free or paid advertising would help, thanks so much OTizzle.

    Pretty slick.

    Social networking sites are always a good way to go....

    You might also try marketing towards businesses, they are always looking for better ways to communicate.

    Most companies ( including the one i work for ) use AIM / MSN.

    i like it though.

    You seriously used Comic Sans font on the "What is RandomBlabber.com?" page?

    Most companies use AIM? Doubtful.

    Any company running Exchange (a good percentage) is probably running communicator. Full integration with the exchange server/outlook. I'd laugh if i came to a company that used aim.

    is there any javascript or flash in there ?

    Market it to high-school kids. A lot of schools have banned meebo.com, but if you get a catchy domain name, you can get a lot of hits quick.

    Maybe try throwing in a "boss/teacher" feature, or something which would separate it from meebo.

    All i know is teenagers + boredom at school = easy money :o

    Also, I use meebo, is this like meebo except not because I can't login using my already existing accounts and I have to create a whole new one with your service?

    maybe modify the script for businesses?

    Basically allow sites to give live chat support by letting users IM them with their questions. And do this by just including a small bit of code into their sites.

    Basically do this:

    Live Help!:
    [How can I buy an avatar?] [SEND]
    Click Send to start conversatoin

    then on company side:
    User192.168.1.1: How can I buy an avatar?
    Offtopic.com: Go here and here and here
    User192.168.1.1: Thank you, here is a billion dollars
    User192.168.1.1 has closed application

    and you bypass the whole aim/msn thing by not requiring complainers to register.

    Charge something like $4.99-$9.99 per month or make it an ebay script and charge something like $19.99 for it.

    integrate it with common forum software and you would probably make some cash from it.
