Hello!
 
I hope to see you in chat tomorrow.  Chat begins at 4pm pacific, 5pm mountain, 6pm central and 7pm eastern.  If you have never chatted before, find the "word" chat in the blue bar at the upper right of this page.  Click on it, choose the multiple sclerosis room and sign in.

Hehe!!  I did not!!! Rhonda has a mind and will of her own.  I do hope to see you all in chat.  I know that Mystery Reader is ditching us for some work obligation (sigh).  We won't talk about her too much lol.

Hi Gretchen, Im sorry but I am not bery impressed.  I came into the room last night, and got ignored.  I actually left the room and came back, cause I thought that something was wrong with my sign in and no one could see me.  So when I came back in, got ignored again, except for a guy who said that he was rockin and a rollin.

Then two others came in, and I actually got to chat with someone.  It became apparent that they were not welcomed either, when uppoity made the comment that the kids were out to play again.. She then further commented that Monday nights were the nights that the grownups come out to chat.....so I guess she figures that I am one of the kids, ever though we have posted to one another many times....

Oh well another time I guess?

Gary

Hey Gary

I'm sorry that u'r first time in chat wasn't what u may have expected, but really it's an atmosphere of just jumping in and chatting. If u feel u'r being ignored i'm sorry, but i'm sure it wasn't that way at all. We all come and are all welcomed and spoken to...but beyond that it really is just a matter of u or anyone speaking up and making themselves a part of the conversation. Any comments made shouldn't be taken as a personal offense either, but would prob be best taken from their point of view. U have no real knowledge of the person u'r addressing or commenting on...none of us do...so u can pretty well guess that people are commenting from a personal perspective...and not attacking u or anyone else. Knowing the members u'r speaking of i can't believe anything said was meant to offend u or anyone else. I was in chat for awhile tonight and felt it was very unremarkable as chat goes. We all get a chance speak up and make our presence known...so u may just need to do that. ALL are welcomed. We DON'T accept (per forum rules) rude behavior or foul language nor do we accept personal attacks on other members or any sort of flamming.

I hope u don't feel chat was an uninviting atmosphere. I got the impression that u enjoyed it a few nights ago so i'm surprised to hear this tonight. Maybe give it another try next week and this time just jump in there and become part of that conversation...u'll enjoy it much more!

Hey Gary,

I am so sorry you feel that way.  I know that it was just crazy tonight from what I heard from other members.  You got off just as I got on.  I was having a terrible time tracking and following the conversation; everyone was blue.  I need contrasing colors in order for me to be able to follow the conversation easily.  We have several folks that have that same problem.  I try to get on there and remind others of that need.  I also heard that we had several young kids on (13 - 15 year olds).  I will be bringing them to the attention of admin. due to the inappropriateness of the discussions tonight. 

I know that Uppitycats felt badly about hurting your feelings when you departed so abrubtly. I am certain that this was unintentional.   This has happened to me when I have joined chat.  I simply read for a bit then try to get someone's attention by name eventually.  I know that, again, with the visual stuff that MSers have problems with, many of us chat sort of one on one in the group format. 

I know I enjoyed chatting with you the other day. But again, it was just us and much easier for me to follow. 

Love and prayers,

Ok so maybe I jumped the gun a bit, but I do wonder how many times you have to say "hi", "how are u" 'jow is everyone tonight" before you get the message that maybe I made a misake in joining in.....

Having said that, I too am sorry for jumpng the gun a bit, but I was really looking forrward to the experience, and then was disappointed when everything went sideways

thanks for the posts

Hae a nice day

Gary

Hey Gary

I sincerely apologize if u were offended or ignored in chat last night. There were so many there and the confusion was topping out at max by the time i got off that Elvis could have come in and i'd prob not have realized it. Chat is usually a lot of fun and i join the others in saying i hope u'll return for another try at it. Just jump in there and get in the middle of the conversation and have a good time friend!
