You're right that a small percentage of CC members use it and I also agree that it would be nice to see more people in Live Chat just as it would be nice to see more players on the site. The awards are not done, however, to "just drive traffic" to live chat - they are done in appreciation of the contributions made by the relevant users.
In relation to your comment about "never see anything interesting going on" well I cannot deny that it is dead at some times and I have no doubt that you have found times that are not interesting to you. I have a few comments to make to that.
a) The majority of times that I have been in Live Chat in the last few months it has been busier than before and definitely not boring.
b) We are planning to have regular events inside of live chat so that it is even more interesting. Partnering with Entertainment for the Live Chat Trivia is one example of that. We should be having at least 1 event a month inside of live chat from now on... sometimes more.
c) Tell me what you would find interesting and I'll tell you if it is already happening, being planned to happen or can happen.
Keep in mind that Live Chat is indeed Live and therefore depends on people being on at the time that you are there. Your timing may have brought you in at times where people were not really on. The Forum is very different in nature so comparing it with live chat is like comparing apples with flowers. Why not start a conversation with whoever happens to be on? As I said before many of the regulars are happy to welcome new members to the family. That being said what can you
do to liven it up some more? We welcome your input and would love to see you there more often.
