Honestly, I don't use it. The people I want to talk to, I've since added on YIM/skype/other messenger programs or talk to in a program like mumble and ventrilo. The toolbar gets in the way more than anything, and I don't really see a point for it. Meebo rarely works anymore, so I think by now most people have learned to live without it on the site.

Like everybody else, I loved when we could use meebo while on the forum and it was extremely helpful when I was a gamesage since I could basically talk to people instantly without needing an outside chatting program and shoutbox isn't private.

I can also back this.

I frequently used the Meebo bar to communicate with fellow players and they would communicate with me regarding their issues.

I hope it (or something similar) gets put back into the website.

Honestly though, since meebo is now integrated with google +, I'm not to satisfied with its interface. If something similar was used, it would be much better.

I'm on the fence about it. While I know how useful it can be for communicating with people and can see why some people would like using it, I personally just use YIM and Shoutbox for these things. Meebo is just redundant to me.

I'd use it more if it was available during forum-use, defintely.

I personally don't use it often. I've gotten to a point I just use the default inboxs for PMs. Otherwise, I use a script blocker and find it to be a pain to always re-enable meebo to even bother to use it.

I would use it more if it actually worked outside profiles, it's just too annoying having it randomly log you in and out constantly if you're browsing the forum.  



Def agree I never use it now since I have to get on my profile to see it...I always used it before that change happened.

Was here when it was first implemented and I immediately turned it off. As others said, I find it annoying and buggy. I would much rather just communicate with people via shout box or in game.

Honestly, don't think its an important thing to worry about.

It was just something that was there, when it was on the forums, I used it.
Now that it's on the profile page only, I don't use it.
But it doesn't really make much of a difference.

This.

I used it before but since it only works on profile it's kinda rare to chat with people since they also need to be on some profile. I started using a lot in the past but not much anymore since as I've said it's rare to catch people on some profile.
