kdAlise Brenda is going to try to set up a chat in Yahoo since so many are having trouble with the on-site chat feature.
04-17-2009 12:02 AM
kdAlise Ok, I am in the chat room. No one else is here yet, but I will wait for a while.
04-16-2009 01:30 PM
kdAlise We will have the meeting tonight (Thursday). The chat is loading fine for me, with updated Flash and Firefox 3. There's not really anything we can do to change it or help make it easier to access. We are looking into password issues, but otherwise please just check your versions of Flash and browser. You will probably have to have an updated browser.

Spaggie Now I dont feel sop bad about not being here. Things with Drew haven't been good these past few days.

Thursday or Friday isd fine with me, although Thursday is better. We may have to go somewhere Friday - not sure yet.
04-15-2009 03:04 PM
teacherinct Me either. I'm flying to Fl.
04-15-2009 02:51 PM
tailwaggers My password won't work on the chat function.
Thursday night works better for me. I won't be able to participate at all on Friday.

Grace For me it says something about Flash which explains it. Flash cannot be updated on my Netbook.

Elaine I don't know if I even remember how to do it Wendy. I'd love to get back into it though!
04-15-2009 12:57 PM
Wendy Works for me. Just make sure you go to the right link. the one on the main page leads to a dead page....which BTW BBUer's from back in the day....don't go to the main page....there is still halloween stuff up. I remember when Elaine and I did it weekly
04-15-2009 12:40 PM
Grace I can never get the chat function to work here. I thought it was because of my outdated browser, but others have mentioned to me that it didn't work for them either. So maybe a test run is in order before the main event just to ensure the chat function is working properly. Like I said though, the company who manufactured my netbook when belly up and it hasn't been undated since 2007, so I am a bad one for that.
04-15-2009 12:07 PM
Wendy I won't be there but I hope someone can keep me posted. I'm in bed at 10--at least during the school year. Summer on the other hand.....
04-15-2009 11:47 AM
kdAlise Hi everyone, I'm sorry about the confusion. There was a family emergency last night and I wasn't able to be here. Everything's fine, I just had to be there last minute for my family.

I would like to reschedule the chat for tomorrow night (Thursday, April 16) or Friday (April 17) at 10 PM Eastern, 9 Central. Please let me know which night will be best for everyone.

Sorry again.

KJBBDOLL 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.
04-15-2009 10:06 AM
Elaine 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.

Kelli said originally that a transcript of the chat would be posted.

tailwaggers Did the chat even happen? I was on just a little after 9:00 Eastern time and it didn't look like the chat was going on.

tailwaggers 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.
04-14-2009 01:22 PM
kdAlise 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.
04-14-2009 01:18 PM
Grace 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.
04-14-2009 12:06 PM
kdAlise It looks like 9 Eastern (8 Central) is going to be the best time for everyone, so that will be it.

Official Chat Time: Tuesday, April 14, 2009 at 9:00 PM (Eastern)
04-13-2009 03:12 PM
MaryBeth001 I'd love to join in but my home computer is a mess right now so I can't participate.
04-12-2009 02:12 AM
Spaggie 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!
04-10-2009 02:33 PM
Grace I don't think the chat function works on my computer, so don't worry about me.
04-10-2009 12:05 PM
Elaine I get home from work around 8pm so any time after that is good for me.
04-09-2009 07:30 PM
tailwaggers After 10 pm Eastern time is best for me.
04-09-2009 04:13 PM
kdAlise 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.
04-07-2009 11:52 AM
BeccaSueBoo Any evening is good for me except Wednesdays...our pastor is long-winded
04-07-2009 09:41 AM
Elaine Any evening after 8 (eastern) is good for me ... except this weekend with the Holiday.
04-07-2009 12:20 AM
tailwaggers 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.
