Hi everyone,

I would like to know when would be the best time to have a chat to discuss the site and any issues people are having with it. Come with questions, complaints, concerns, ideas, requests, etc. Please post here when you could chat. Everyone may not be able to attend, but I hope we can find a time that suits most everyone. My ideal would be any time Friday (April 3) but we may need to plan further ahead. If you have any questions please let me know.

Thanks,

Kelli

I can chat just about anytime, since I am home most of the day. Tomorrow evening is fine for me.

I don't think we'll be able to do it today -- we just need more time to arrange it. Thanks for posting when you're available. It's already apparent that there are conflicting times, so I'd like to get some more feedback before making the final scheduled time.

Since night time seems to be best for everyone, let's settle on a date and time. Is there any particular day that is best for anyone? What time (please include which time zone you're in).

Eastern time zone here too. This week is best for me since Emily is on spring break, and I don't have to get up early or be anywhere really. But this Friday is not good for me since it's Good Friday.

Let's go for Tuesday night, if that's alright with everyone. Please post what time frame (including time zone) would be best for you. If I don't hear from anyone on a particular time, I'll just pick one. Look forward to hearing from everyone.

Edit: I say Tuesday night because tomorrow is Good Friday and Monday is Easter Monday.

I get home from work around 8pm so any time after that is good for me.

I don't think the chat function works on my computer, so don't worry about me.

Anytime is good for me. But past experience with weekday chats tells me that you should have it at 8PM EST at the earliest. That gives everyone a chance to get home, eat, settle the kids, etc. 9pm EST might be even better. I'm open to anytime. I'll just make Rick watch the kids!

It looks like 9 Eastern (8 Central) is going to be the best time for everyone, so that will be it.

Don't you mean 8 central? I thought those of us in Eastern time zone were ahead of the rest.

There's only one thing I would like to add that I haven't already said. I would like Prayer Requests to be moved to a subforum of the Religion section. Here's why: It is a spam magnet. I don't know why, but it is. I am sick and tired of reporting spams from a forum that is supposed to be there for people in their deepest need. There is no deep need to sell tennis shoes or porn videos. Relgion could be changed into a members only forum if it isn't already. It just really makes me nauseaous to see spammers abuse this particular forum because no one posts there frivilously. It is always something serious. They might still post there, but hopefully, changing it to a subforum will make it less attractive.

Posting there is oviously supposed to be an attention getting devise on the part of spammers.

Thanks for pointing out the time Grace

Regarding the Prayer forum, I will go ahead and make that a subforum of Religion, and look into restrictions. If anyone disagrees with the changes I've made we can discuss it in the chat.

I tried to get on to join in the chat, but I had to log in with a username and password and it kept saying it was incorrect. I know it's not, but there wasn't anything I could do about it.

Well I read this earlier and saw 10 CST and thought cool I can make it. Only now to see that it was 8 CST and I was at work.

Will there be some sort of synopsis posted so those of us who could not make it due to other obligations know what was discussed?

Well I missed it too. No time had been posted by the time I left for work yesterday and then I came home sick and went straight to bed. Sorry ladies, I really would have liked to contribute to the chat but it didn't work out this time.

I checked on the home page a couple of times and never saw anyone here for the chat. I had a miserable migraine so I didn't want to just sit here in front of the puter all night. I hope that if it did happen that there will be a transcript posted. Otherwise if we reschedule it I think that a Friday night would be much better to get more involved.
