I was just thinking, and I know a few of us had a chat about it yesterday, but thought I'd put it out there.

 

What would yall think of setting up certain times for the chat room to do a theme (or something) for topics of conversation. I just thought it would be cool to know there are things going on at certain times, and think it would help draw people to chat. From the "Hot Seat" post I know there were a bunch of people who said they don't like to go into chat, but I also know there are a lot of people who do!

 

I think it's sorta neat that after getting the 50 Post, being able to go into chat and see what the different people are really like. After reading many posts from people, it's kinda like.... hey, I know your stuff! But getting to chat is a really different experience on getting to know the people on this Forum.

 

So any Ideas on what we should do? Yesterday we sorta started to make it a "Happy Hour" Theme... lot of fun, and so HALARIOUS!!! If you could also leave a brief comment about where you live for quick refrence... in you are interested. Thanks.

 

Any suggestions are helpful, so please, if you have any ideas let us know.

We have Discussion Group, every Friday, where we talk about a particular subject, usually serious, although some can dissolve into fits of laughter ...

 

AND we will be having Book Club back....I shall be posting a poll about that in the General Forum...

 

 

Throw some ideas out there, Tiff, let's see what people want...

 

"Happy Hour"..that sounds fun !!!

That's good to know about the discussion group, and the book club. And yes it was a blast. We had Wiki as "bartender" and everything. It was all just for a good laugh, which at the end of a hard day is kinda nice.

 

What about a morning chat? Like for those who like to get up in the morning and sit down at the computer with their coffee/ tea, and just like to have a good chat?

There's never going to be a convenient time for all time zones... So even if another discussion group is organised, some are still going to find it in-convenient.

 

I'm 16 hours ahead of the U.S and 11 ahead of the UK. I keep odd hours, tho. But the Friday discussion is at 9am Saturday morning for me, i'm either asleep or doing something else, being the weekend and spending time with my beloved.

 

And thats just me! Add 2 hours on for New Zealand take 2 hours away for Indonesia...it just goes on and on.

 

Right now Discussion is at 10pm London time first alot aren't there because they're either out or in bed, second, if it goes for hours, the poor Uker's are in bed after midnight. In the U.S its what 5pm? A lot are having dinner or family time, but then they have some time up their sleeve to stay for quite some time, hell don't even need to come at the start when they're having dinner/family time.

 

Bottom line, there's never gonna be a convenient time being an international forum.

 

Just covering all angles here.

Well, I think that's why there are so many people who wish to have more options. No, there isn't ever going to be the "perfect" time for everyone... but having more options couldn't hurt. I think that is what some of us are looking for... more times = more options. And maybe if they can't make it to one time... then they could try to make it to one at the alternative time.

 

Like I said before... it's just a suggestion.

 

I know I do try to make it to the one's that we have now... but I understand that for the people who live in the UK it does get really late, and might not want to stay up so late.... to continue something that the people from the US, or where ever, have to come in late to isn't always fun.

I would love to have another option for discussion groups...Maybe we could all do the same topic just two or maybe even three different times...My question though and I'm sure someone knows the answer. who would lead these other times? I know the friday night one Lily leads so would we need another mod to join us? Personally that one is at 5pm on friday and I am at work and if i'm not then it would be errands and dinner. I would be open to like after 7 eastern time or even during the day on a saturday. I'll be interested to see where this can go. Thanks Tiff

I like the idea of having more options for chat times.

more options is never a bad thing, and it allows for people in diff time zones to enjoy a structured discussion much like fridays...makes sense to me, good idea tiff! :hyper:

i really like the idea of setting up structured chats with specific topics... maybe even other chat groups that consistently talk about all of the topics that are on the posts. i enjoy popping into the chat room as it is now but i am new and still feel like i'm not getting "the joke" - usually, members in the room already know each other and are talking about something that i don't know. it's nice when the chat opens up to things that are more universal (sex ed, relationship issues, etc.) but other than that, i just sit back and watch.

 

great poll.

To me there are no reasons why you can't have your own discussions groups in your own time zones...talk about the same subject then maybe post a summary about it, to bring the whole discussion groups together.

 

UK discussion takes place usually on a Friday at 10pm for UK girls and anyone else who can join in from anywhere.

 

US can do a time for themselves....and so could other part of the world.

 

Just thoughts...

good point froggy... i just looked in chat and we can create new rooms, right? no reason why we can't set up a special chat for a special time for US users...

 

thanks for the thought! :evilgrin0039:

You can't actually set up new rooms for yourself...no reason why you can't use one of the room already there for your discussion groups, just like the UK ones do, that way the main chat room stays as it is, and anyone then can come in and then if they wish to join the discussion group just join the room you have for it.

I'm with 'pants', what are the chances of local forums, but I guess that limits the numbers in some cases, just a thought! Also, for a structured approach, it would help those of us who don't often get into chat, at times its like walking into a room full of people and only knowing one or two there, can take a while to get into the swing of things, again, just a thought.

With a lil planning and Patience this will all work itself out. I'd love attend a discussion or 2. But like others i need to fit it in.

I wonder what happened to the Friday night discussions. Are they still a done thing as I've not noticed them or a while? X

It did for a while while Lily was here - but trying to match up times around the world and topics and some one to guide and support topics is tricky. Sad because I enjoyed them

If a Mod looks on here, please can you tell me why my name keeps coming up on this thread when I have not posted on it since June?

It just came up I posted at 9.13PM and I was not even on at that time.

Good question. And this mod will use the power of Google to figure it out. I'm going to guess glitch?

 

Results - Google helped nothing. Try changing your password just in case, but I doubt someone has hacked you if the system is just saying you posted, but never did. Clear cookies, cache and the like and see if it helps?
