 We have an excellent chat room. How about weekly chats?
Is anyone interested in a regularly scheduled hour-long chat session in the BookTalk.org chat room just to socialize with our fellow BookTalk.org members?

I'm new here, so I'd be interested.

Post Re: We have an excellent chat room. How about weekly chats?
What we need is a few active members that will commit to making an effort to attend the weekly chat. We don't want people to show up to an empty chat room.

Years ago we had weekly chats with up to 15 people in the room on any given chat session. We did them on Thursdays at 9:00 pm Eastern. But our chat room is available 24 hours per day so anyone wanting to volunteer to be a regular in the chat room can set it up for whenever they like.

At this point we're not ready to set a date and time for weekly chats. But this thread can be the start of a discussion. Let's see how many people are interested. BookTalk.org is slow during the summer months so right now things are a bit quiet on the forums.

Thank you for your interest, Monkeybear. :-)

And welcome to BookTalk.org!

9pm Eastern USA is 11am where I am now (Esperance WA) and 1pm at my home in Canberra. Now that I am not working full time I could do that.

I like the idea, provided that a day and time can be agreed upon. I am in Mountain Time, so it would be a two hour differential for me from Eastern Time, but I think I could manage.

I'm in.
My only limitation is that weekdays I'm on the job. I'm free during the evenings and most of the weekend.

Post Re: We have an excellent chat room. How about weekly chats?
I'm pleased to see you guys liking the idea of bringing back weekly chats. We had great success with Thursdays at 9:00 pm Eastern and it seems that is again a good time slot for most people.

What do you think about having a few topic idea to discuss each week? Of course it will be very casual but enticing people to join with a topic or two might work.

Post Re: We have an excellent chat room. How about weekly chats?
I think having a topic would be good to know ahead of time. That way, when the chat time is here, we can have an idea of what we would like to talk about. Like I said before, I'm new to this sort of thing, so I'm not sure if that's the normal way to go or not but I certainly like the idea. 8)

I'm not going to personally make every Thursday night chat but I'll do my best. I'm hoping many of you will not only attend them but will try to spread the word of these chats.
