Cowart's Common Room

Interesting, but I've never gone to the chat room and found anyone in it.

"Do we need a chat room?" Bear asked, impertinently (as usual). Cool

Tiggywinkle's Avatar I have only gone over a few times, but really enjoyed the banter. Pity it is not used more. Maybe if there was a set time, it would be used more.

Westerwitch's Avatar Perhaps if we had a window that popped up when someone went in the chatroom - like on FB.

Two good suggestions. Wondering if Headmistress plan might be a bit intrusive, but if we don't try (or at least thing about it) we'll never know.

Thanks, Tiggy & WW.

Any more thoughts?

Westerwitch's Avatar Well it could be a small box on the right at the bottom of screen - perhaps with an option to turn it off . . . so needn't be intrusive . . .

For now the only way to let people know is to put up a post in the Common Room.

Withy Brook's Avatar I have had some happy times in the chat room, but it does tend to make me late to bed! I think the winter is a better time for it. I like the idea of a means of telling if someone is there. Intusive? Possibly. But it is not really a place for private conversations.
There was a long period when it was taken over by 3 people who emailed each other at the same time as chatting and talked a lot of "rubbish", which had the effect of keeping everyone else out.
As a straight forward immediate (or almost) chat place it is fun and a real test if there are several conversations going on at the same time!

Lampworkbeader's Avatar On winter evenings I pop in from time to time, but seldom use it in the summer.

OK, WW, I see what you mean. Good possibility

Silverhead's Avatar I think WW has got a good idea. I, too find it difficult to be in the right place at the right time.
