Is chat ever active?
Oct 16th, 2012 at 12:13pm
 
I was just curious if there was any particular time when chat was active.  I've tried it a few times when I'm here at work.  Being web based, it's one of the few I can get to behind our firewall Smiley

Not much. When I had a computer I would pull it up in another window when I got in the forum, but unless there's an organized event the chat is usually dead.

Massi - WTF? It's called a sling. You use it to throw rocks farther and faster than you could otherwise. That's all.

I go to the General link then count the bodies at the bottom. if there are 6 or more.
I'll some times open a chat window in a different tab then start an I'm in chat topic.

I'll usually pick up 3 or 4 willing to chat.. generally takes 10-15 min for everyone to assemble in the chat room. We have tried scheduling but that has not worked out well. I tried for a while to promote check the chat room on the 20s ie on the hour, 20 past the hour and 40 past the hour...that also didn't work out ...

for a while in a land far far away and once upon a time there was a moderator who hosted a weekly chat and kind of moderated the chat ... which worked after a fashion ... hard to schedule a good world wide chat window.

I think posting an "I'm in chat" topic works as well as anything I've seen on the forum.

Had same problem with fire fox and ie ... went and acquired an old version of avant ... I logged in with that .... still had to mash the fool out of the login (a lot of rapid presses) before a login window would stay in place.

we had a system going where if we were on the forum, we would all agree to pull up the chat. We'd also post in a thread stating we were on, and what time it was (including time zone). This let others know. If the post was over an hour ago, chances are that user already left, so we could save some time.

Nothing against doing the same with this thread, seeing that's it's already here

All of you who weren't there 11 hours ago, you have missed a nice talk on duck cooking and the use of duck grease.

Teg, if yo have too much duck on sunday, you can try a second serving with apple slices instead of potatoes and mushroom.

Mhh... Slightly cooked apple slices with duck on honey sauce... A poem in the pan...

For the duck on honey with potatoes, mushrooms and persil (with or without crème fraîche): I thought a little drip of high quality balsamico over it before serving could match perfectly.

When we had an "Are you on chat" thread it was a good bit more active. I had at least 2 chats thus far but I would really like to have more regarding The Slinger's Guide.

Since I usually have about 50 open IE windows anyway, I'll open it up every day in case anybody decides they want to come in and say hi
