My reason is that..

.. When I gave it a shot, I found 2 guys just talking to each other. Newcomers were'nt recognized or welcomed. Lotsa folks popped in, and then after listening to the mine's bigger, older bit, left.

A chat room like this should leave openings for anyone who wishes to express themselves. A pause, and a "whatta yu think?" every so often makes people feel welcome.

The chat room is what it is. Folks come and go all the time. It's funny, I've been on chat several times where it's been packed and near empty. I've never had that perception.

You just have to jump in with both feet. There are no training wheels in chat like you'll find on the regular forum.

FWIW, The first few Chat sessions I went to I was more of an observer than a part of it. It took ma a few times to get the hang of it. Then a small pop up window came up and I was chatting with one person and tying to keep up th the rest. Man did my head spin!!! Then lastnight it was a small session and it was nice. It takes time to get use to how it works.

Ken,
I had planned on it...BUT: the new sigma software won't run on the cell modem, the KOA I am at has a modem line, but I usually have to fight for it. The nearest free WIFI is 6-8 miles down the road, past a perennial Police Road Block, and it is past my 2030 bedtime...I know, I know personal problems don't concern you

So whats your point? Just kidding of course - we/I did miss you.

Soarhead - yeah, you have to jump in - yes conversations do get going, but feel free to join in, give us your take on whatever we are talking about. Most of us try to say hello when someone signs on - I can't tell you how often someone will join in, we say hello, no response and within minutes they are signed off. One of the best ways to get things going is to say hello, identify yourself as a new user and offer to pass the beer (virtual beer of course) - that will get you lots of responses.

Log on as Soarhead next week, I'll make sure we get you going - again for others, let us know your new and we/I will make sure we bring you in to the conversation.

Ken

Most days I don't know what day it is. Last night was no exception. I made it albeit late. I was a bit daunted by my first chat experience. I think it was Jalina who greeted me and struck up a conversation. Try it again. We'll be looking for you.

give it another try next tuesday, we always try to recognize people when they log on. it can be daunting at first, we have had upwards of 20 people on at one time! it is like walking into a crowded room and trying to talk to everyone at once!

Just jump in, ask what we're discussing, and then ask away with questions. Like everyone says, we try to say hi, and sometimes the chats get flying...I wish it would go Tues and Thursday myself, as I find it hard to go a week without the chat. Also, say where your from as that helps up know where you're coming from.

I waited over a year to wade into Chat, and loved it. It is fast and sometimes a little intimidating. Sometimes by the time you jump in, the talk is off and gone in another direction, but that's okay! They'll either circle around again, or you head off with them in whatever direction talk is going. It is fun. . .and like others, Tuesdays seem far apart some weeks.
