If you visit the site’s rumour pages, you may have noticed a tiny addition to the bottom right hand corner of the browser window.
This is Envolve, a live chat system for part of the Northlight site. You can get an account quite easily, with an optional photo and add some biographical information. However, you can contribute to conversations using an automatic randomly created ‘Fake’ name if you wish, No registration is required to use the system.
The software is still in beta, so is firmly in the experimental category.
One nice feature is that it has built in language translation, so the default is to see people’s comments translated into your chosen language.
