Hello all,

I would like to ask if there are any active members currently using the chatroom?

As a suggestion it would be nice to have a date and time for all of us to meet in the chatroom once a week. Just a thought and I know we would have to consider the time zones.

Anyone interested?

Hi Gift,
Wow.  I've been on this forum for nearly 4 years and never even checked out the chat option.  Great suggestion...especially for people who have immediate questions.  Great idea...I suspect others will also weigh in on your suggestion soon.

I also just found out about the chat room feature. I even logged in but I was the only one.
Good idea, If someone schedules a chat room I'd join in, of course, if my schedule allows me to. Thanks.
regards, Ed

The chat rooms are a great feature and I did have one going for anxiety for awhile but setting up the times is a bear as our members are from all over the world so we have many time zones to work with.
The members are welcome to use the GERD chat room anytime they choose to talk with each other about their concerns, issue and just to share with each other. 
To set up scheduled chats you have to enter the event on the calander:
Also whoever sets up the chats should probably post a reminder in the forum the day of the chat and reminder of the time.
From there you just sign into the GERD chat room and join other members.
The same rules and guideline that apply to the forums also apply to the chat rooms so you may see a Moderator pop in and out or perhaps they are just in the chat room as a member to chat with you.
