We're going to try the user chat again!

Post by elc32955 » Fri Sep 03, 2021 1:11 am

Hi folks!

Well, we have a good amount of new people on the system so after some consultation with our admin staff I've decided to try the Wednesday night chats again. For those newer folks here, the system has a chat function towards the bottom of the forum home page. We get on there and talk about anything related to Caprices & cars, normally there are a number of tenured members here who can help with questions from new owners or to talk somewhat technically about any issues that people are having. It's a throwback to the earlier days of the system, the chats were always fun when we had them.

So, the first chat will be held beginning at 8 PM Eastern on Wednesday, September 8. It will go until we all get tired of talking & the last person leaves. Oh, you are required to have a valid system account in order to access the chat subsection. That means for lurkers without a system account you can't see the chatroom. Get your free account & validate now if you want to participate!

Any questions please PM me, we'll hopefully see everyone LIVE at 8:00 PM Eastern on Wednesday!

Thanks
Eric

Thanks to everyone that participated in the user chat last night. Numbers were small compared to what we used to see "in the old days" (I.E. 2016 & before) but everyone that participated had a good time and all had some sort of takeaway.

I'm thinking about running the chats monthly, perhaps 1st Wednesday of the month, 8:00 PM eastern. It's hard to balance the time for the chat considering we cross several time zones. Our 8 PM here on the east coast is 5 PM out on the West Coast. Setting it at 8 PM eastern is a middle-of-the-road time pretty much, don't see how we could start it much later and still make the chat open to everyone.

If anyone has ideas, opinions, suggestions for the scheduled chats, please post them in this thread for comment.

Thanks
Eric

I participated in the chat for the first time last night. It was a GREAT event. I learned a couple technical things as well as getting to know some of the users/administrators that have been part of the group for a long time. I would encourage everyone to join in during a future chat. Thanks to all who keep this site going!

Sorry I missed that one. Would have loved to participate. I put the next one in my calendar.

Hi folks,

I just posted the next live chat as a board announcement. Wednesday, October 6 (1st Wednesday of the month), 8:00 PM Eastern. Unless something changes I'll keep it on the 1st Wednesday for the time being... And.. chats are always held off the main forum page using our on-board Mchat module. Scroll to the bottom of the page and you'll see our chat section.

Thanks
