Can we schedule a chat session?

Postby Individual » Sat Jan 31, 2009 11:48 pm

The chatroom seems to have gone as I expected (unless I missed some great conversations). I went in there a couple times, and both times, I saw people logging in, saying, "Hello?" then going away and logging out. :P

Could we schedule a chat session? The people whose time matters most are the bhikkhus here -- Ven. Appicchato and Dhammanando... And also, although Retrofuturist, Mikenz, and Ben aren't monks, they are all insightful enough that it would be very good to have them around too.

When are you all available?

Greetings Individual,

We have no plans to centrally schedule chat sessions.

Of course, we won't stop you or others doing it though if it's something that interests you.

I made a thread in the coffee lounge last night and Retro and a couple of others stopped in.

I'd join you there now but I'm heading out the door, maybe tomorrow...

Greetings Individual,

I'll create you a pinned thread in the Lounge for you and others to schedule chats or just announce your availability for a chat.
