    :chatterbox:Seeing as a few of us have a chat on msn each night and there are quite a few newbies , and the chat room here has been empty for a while. If there is anyone about tonight maybe 8.30 ish and some of us old timers can say hi (thats time wise not age):biglaugh: to some of the newer members. Just click on the chat function at the top right of thr page and pop in. Cheers Graham

    Hi Graham,

     

    I've been going on and having a quick look most days, but maybe I'm not going on at the right times. Anyway, will take a peek at 8.30 and see if this old timer can have a chat!

     

    It's a shame to have this facility on here and not take advantage of it.

    How does it work then? I've never been in a chat room before. :embarrassed: Please keep in mind that most technology is beyond me, if it's complicated you can count me out I'm afraid!

    I was on last night as well sarah, i know I said hi to you, but I was totally lost once it started getting a bit busier and ended up just sitting back and trying to keep up with what was going on. I was replying to questions that people had already moved on from.

     

    If you felt ignored, I don't think anybody would have done it on purpose, it was just a bit too busy, but accept my apologies anyway, because I was there x.

     

    That's the 2nd time I have been on, the first time it was only myself and dan, which stopped me getting confused (which isn't the easiest thing to do!)

    Hello Sarah

     

    We too were on last night and found it quite difficult to keep up. It was quite like the two ronnies sketch where they answered the question they had been asked before on mastermind. Our typing is restricted to one finger!

     

    If we ignored you we apologise. totally unintended.

    Hi Sarah,

    You must have disapeared before I got there. The thing with chatrooms is that you may well feel you are being ignored but I can assure you you aren't. Those that didn't speak to you could have been elsewhere when you came in. They could be on the forum reading or posting, gone off to make a cuppa or be talking to someone else in a private window and so not really reading what is going on in the main room. Sorry I missed you coz it would have been nice to chat.

     

    I was totally lost once it started getting a bit busier and ended up just sitting back and trying to keep up with what was going on.

     

    It can get very manic at times and 4 or 5 different convos all going off at once can be confusing to begin with. Keep coming in and you will soon be able to keep up. It does help if everyone chooses a different colour for their text.

     

     

    We too were on last night and found it quite difficult to keep up.

     

    What you can do is split up into different rooms. There could be 15 people in there but spread out so that there are only 3 in each room. Makes it easier to keep up. Also if you want to ask someone something instead of your message getting lost in the madness of the main room, you can send it in a new window so that only the intended person can read it.

    Another thing you can do is create your own room. You can also put a password on it so that you can keep a convo private. Fabby idea to keep out the riff raff.:biglaugh::biglaugh:

     

    Hope to see you all in there sometime soon.

     

    Pete

    I have no trouble keeping up in chat rooms as have been using them for about 3 yrs now.

    But sometimes whne there are a group in there talking about things they only know about, it can be a bit like trying to understand and join in on a private joke. A chat room is for chatting to everyone, if a private chat is wanted then msn or the like is the place for that.

    Also, I didnt really feel ignored or bothered, I just to point out I think it can be rude if someone, anyone, joins the chat room and the peeps already in there carry on regardless.
