Hello all, I noticed there is a chat room feature on this site, and that it's always been empty when I've tried it.

Are there any pre-set times that you guys get together and chat in real-time? Or is it not used?


My idea is that we could pick a day/time (various dates/times to suit more people) and people could decide which session (if any) they wanted to attend.

I'm thinking of it being kind of like a group therapy session. Maybe an hour a week or something and there would be a 'team leader' for that day...appointed by the members attending, and then people could take turns sharing their successes/trials of the past week, and then there could be a suggestion/advice/question/answer period...followed by the next person that wants to share... and so on.

If it doesn't work, it doesn't work. I just know for me (with my counselling sessions ended...for the time being) I could use the 'socialization' aspect.

Cooping myself up in my apartment all day, alone has its downsides, so interacting may assist others like it could me.

Anyway, just a suggestion. The room did say that there's a max of 20 people. And I believe that's for all healing well forums, not just our anxiety forums. But again, I've never seen anyone in any of the rooms to date.

Cool. Well I'll put my name in the hat as 'interested' :)

Anyone else have any time in their schedules, and of course any interest?

Use of the chat schedule is an option , however we have never had good attendance when we have had a scheduled time before. Because people are from so many different time zones some times only 1 person has shown up.


If people are interested they sure can post here and let us know.

Okay thanks for following up Kitt. Much appreciated. I understand the difference in time zones, that's what makes these forums so convenient.

It was just a thought as I hadn't noticed the option before. :)

You are always welcome to join an informal chat just by checking the rooms or the calander to make sure the rooms are open. People meet there and chat. The rooms are monitored by the Moderators.


Thanks,



Kitt

I would definitely be interested in participating if a certain time/date could be worked out. Like you said, it would probably be hard to schedule where most people could be involved. Sounds like a good idea to me though.

I would like to participate as well... When I was involved in a scheduled chat in the past, they would set a time around 5pm, so as not to be too late for those from eastern time zones. If a chat can be organized and posted ahead of time, so people can arrange their schedules-that would be something to look forward to. At least, try it one time, and see if it works out. Perhaps, on weekends? Anyway, count me in... peace out.... L

Hello All,


Only two of the requesting people are still members of this forum. So with only 2 it would not work well.



Anyone else interested in a scheduled chat ?



Thanks,



Kitt and Lyn
