Hello gang,
 
Tortoise and myself bounced an idea around about having a weekly chat that would be scheduled for the entire day.
 
The depression board is doing this every Tuesday and it seems to be working well for them (having participated myself)
 
It really helps with people being in different time zones. It's comforting that knowing that entire day the chances are increased of someone being in the chat room for support....
 
Tortoise voted for Wednesdays or Thursdays. I think either one of those would be fine; maybe to stay away from Tuesday when the depression board has theirs, that way if you are participating in both you will have two different days available?
 
What does everyone think?

I think an all-day chat is a wonderful idea! Any day would be a true blessing! Knowing that, if we're having problems, someone would be in the chat room to talk to would be an enormous help. What a great idea, Mogs and Tortoise.

I think that would be great and give everyone have a perfect time and know that they could get on at anytime that day.

I vote for NOT Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday.

I know I need support more than once a hings change fast and I don't want to be in a situation when I need to talk andweek, so if we space it out from the depression forum's chat day on Tuesday, it will give 2x per week support for most people on the board.

I also think it might be nice to do 2 days a week.  T it is a whole week until chat day.

Another reason for another day is that some people work a lot during the week and have a hard time finding time to connect, so a weekend would be better for those people.  Weekends can be very lonely and they are my hardest days of the week.  I can't be the only one!

Thursday and Sunday chat days?

Here's an idea: Whenever we go to post something on this board, why don't we also take a look in the chat rooms, just to see if anybody's there? I just looked, and nobody seems to be around. I'll go over to the BP chat room and hang around for about 15 minutes--it's about 10:20 Eastern Standard Time in the United States--just in case someone shows up.

Thanks for all the feedback guys!
 
So let's maybe try the Thursdays and Sundays as "scheduled All-Day Chats"??? I agree that we can get lonley and needing support on weekends, so I think adding the Sunday is a great idea! Bill-I know the moderators for the other boards post these scheduled chats in the calendar. (If you click on the links you can see what times they posted...) Or can any of us do this? Not sure smilewinkgrin And perhaps we shall just schedule one month at a time?
 
And I think Havana made a great point; that if we have time when we're posting to check on the chat rooms....Some of us work and might not be available as much, So for anyone checking in on the chat rooms and not finding anyone there, try not to feel discouraged. Hopefully having these all day chats will help.
 
Hugs to you all!
