I was wondering if anyone from the depression forum is ever in the chat room?  Is there a specific time for this forum? I would like to know as I think it would be helpful.  Thanks.

Chat is open 24/7 so you may drop in anytime and leave a post that you are in the chat room or we may schedule a special time for chat room for Depression.

Do you have a specail day/days of week or times of day?  How many times a week do you want to have a chat and do you want it to be just sharing of selves or topic oriendted?

Input from all would be good.

If you let me know I well get us ont the calendar.  The Chat Schedule is found under links.

Thanks

Kitt

Hi there,

I scheduled regular weekly chat sessions for Depression for a few months (NOV / DEC / JAN I think) and I basically stopped because nobody really wanted it. We could try starting it up again and see what happens. As Kitt has said, the chat rooms are open 24-7 but certain forums book particular times (You can click CALENDAR in the blue bar at the top) as we can only have 20 people in chat at one time.

Eej Aurora,

I haven't spoken to you in a while, I hope you are doing better. If you ever want to have a chat, I will try to be there. Just pick a date and a time, and I will let you know if that is possible.

All the best!
Erik

P.S: Darren, maybe you could schedule something, and make something like a topic, because I think no one checks the calender.

I will be glad to set up a chat schedule if the members are interested , however, if there is no interest I won't take up chat room space that others may want.

I remember Darren, that few attened regularly.

I will be watching for feedback.

Kitt

If someone wants to set up a schedule I would be willing to participate.  Even once or twice a month would be fine with me.  If you want to pick a topic that sounds good or even just talk might be helpful.  I am willing to do what any other members feel like.  I Just would like to know if someone is going to post the time on the shcedule or if I should look on the calendar.  I guess I was not aware of the past chats so did not participate. Thanks.

Hi Erik, I would enjoy having a chaf with you sometime.  Fri. nights are always good for me but I don't know if you are in the USA so that might be hard.  If you have read any of my post recently you know I have been struggling.  You seem so positive and I think you would be good to talk to.  We can post on this forum if you want.  I have to learn to not feed into my negativity so your good thoughts would be helpful. Thanks.

Aurora,

I am trying to remember where Erik is from. But I know that it is not US. If I am here, I will chat on Friday night also. Normally I am around, but this week I have company so I can't promise. I am sure there are others who would like to chat.

hugs, Karen...

PS I agree that Erik has been wonderful on the forum. And so have you. We have a great group of people. As soon as I can remember where Erik is from, I will post it. Oooooh this is frustrating..............
 
Erik has an email address in his profile, you should send him one, I am sure he would be more than happy to respond.

Hey All,

Erik seems to post around 0630 my time which is CDT and 1530 CDT so I am willing to schedule a weekly Friday Evening chat time if you tell me what time it is to be.  I will make it a standing appointment time so you will know every Friday night at ___________ time is chat time for Dpression.  We can start with a free form style and as you get comfortable and want a specific topic we can narrow down the conversation.

Let me know your feelings.

Hugs

Kitt

Kitt,

That sounds great to me.

Somebody else can pick the time and I will do my best to be there if need be.

You are so good at organizing things, I wish that I had that ability. I am just along for the ride, I guess.

Hugs to all,
Karen...

LOL, wrong Karen.............you are going to have to help pull a day and time out of hat.  Fridays are pretty well booked up with Prostate and lupus.

Also if we include our time differences evenings are not best time but lets see what Erik has to say.  Remember all chat schedules are set to PST...........................so adjust your time zone when you are picking your time.  If you want to be on at 4 PM CST that is 2 PM PST.

I hope your good at the math...............lol.

Hugs
 Kitt

I think that we should make it convenient for Aurora and Erik to talk if possible.

Eej,

Just dropping in to say that I have absolutely no idea what times you are talking about :). On Friday, which happens to be today, I will be able to chat from 2:00 PM (GMT), until something around 23:50 PM GMT.

But if there isn't a possible solution within the provided times, don't worry, as me and my laptop are pretty flexibel, so in fact any time can be possible. I just need to know.

And Li, I live in Holland, which shares the same time zone (GMT) as you, so I hope that won't be a problem!

All the best, and Aurora (and everyone else), you can mail me anytime!

Hello All

I have been working the numbers...............if it is 2300 GMT for Erik it is only -8 GMT for start of chats, so if he is to be on before 1100 PM we would have to schedule chats around 12 noon PDT. UK is one hour behind Erik so for Confusedli that would be workable too I believe.

Please let me know asap if you want to chat one day a week for one hour around :

12:00 p.m. –   1:00 p.m.            Pacific

  1:00 p.m. –   2:00 p.m.            Mountain

  2:00 p.m. –   3:00 p.m.            Central

  3:00 p.m. –   4:00 p.m.            Eastern

Erik, help me with the math here devil

Thanks

Kitt

Kitt, I am in CST and 2-3PM is fine for me.  Let us know if it is Fridays.  The only bad days for me are Tuesdays and Wednesdays.  I will accommodate to what ever day and time works for all.

Eej Kitt (and the rest),

I used to be good at math, but those time zones + added vacantion are really getting to me :). I even forgot that England is GMT and the Netherlands GMT + 1. I feel stupid ;)

Anyway, New York, which I reckon to be the Eastern, has 6 hours time difference with the Netherlands, and 5 with England. So 15:00 PM Eastern USA time will be 21:00 PM in the Netherlands, and 20:00 PM in the UK. 8 o'clock in the evenings will be great. With my training in mind, the thursday's would be pretty bad, since I am running at that time. Every other day will be OK for most of the time.

I hope I got things right this time :)

Let's try to schedule something in, and see what happens.

All the best!
Erik

EDIT: I forgot we (Europe) are on summertime now, so GMT + 2 in the Netherlands and GMT + 1 in the UK.
