Looks fun - but I was desperately hoping it would allow me to chat in real time with bovine :)

Thanks @wmharris101 ! I was desperately hoping Google would offer an API to translate cows' moo into English so that I can integrate it into MooChat :)

this is a cool angle on internet chat. constructive criticism: maybe stack the "user quit" and (time) messages somehow. when 5 people leave the stream of grey text boxes only makes me want to leave, sending two more grey boxes. its a rough feedback loop for the user. favorite chat: crazyIdeas - some guy really wanted society to wear pants inside out, his intensity was hilarious! i like being able to connect based on interest instead of location or who i already know. meeting new people, even in this limited context, gives me an "internet is smaller than it seems" feeling.

Thanks @rometty_ for the great suggestion! It makes perfect sense to collapse sequential "quit" messages and I will add this feature in next version! I am so happy that you like the the interest based vs location based. Previous versions' MooChat was location (+ interest) based and I found it very hard to retain early users -- because there are too few MooChat users near you. So I removed location and now it seems work much better :-) Thanks again for your feedback!

Seems fun to either pick a trending topic and hear what others have to say, or come up with your own nonsensical word and just chat with a group of friends.
