    Looks Good,

    I suggest creating a few seperate rooms, and advertising some times in there for people to get together.

    A singles room would be fun, one for new divers looking for buddies maybe. Maybe a "help" room for newer divers to ask questions about gear or techniques.

    Just some ideas..
