Chat Room Novice
« on: Saturday 06 May 06 12:09 BST (UK) »
Hope you don't mind me using this thread to ask a couple of questions. If it's inappropriate here then I expect that it could be moved to a new thread :-\

1. What are the best times of day to come into the chatroom - as a novice and just to watch?

2. is there any way of finding our who is in the chatroom, as there is for 'users on line' for example?

Gadget,

 Come in in the  afternoons, quite a mixture of nationalities in the chatroom.

Hi Gadget

I went in for the first time last week.

It's not as scary as you think ;)

Only trouble I have is typing an answer fast enough before someone else asks something.

Looks like some very strange answers to questions at times.     ;D ;D ;D

Hi Both

This thread seems to have been moved around a bit  ;)

Thanks for the friendly advice/welcome. I was going to pop in this evening but events and all that.

I promise to come in one of these days, just to observe at first and, who knows, I might just end up chatting the hind legs off a donkey  ;D

Let me know when you are venturing in!!!!  I used the chatroom a lot (not much lately though) and always had a giggle.

I found the evenings the best.  Lots of members in, and you do have to type fast to keep up but great fun nonetheless :)

I will Jan. I nearly popped in last night but got sidetracked by HTML and CSS and stuff  :o
Maybe I'll watch for the first time (me in a room without saying anything  :o :o) I'll have to revise all those shortcuts but I do type pretty fast - big sister taught me when I was in my teens - best thing ever  ;)

Gadget,

     When you log on to the chatroom several chatters will send a welcome. Apart from acknowledging, there is no need to dive in straight away.  You might want to wait until a topic comes up which might interest you and/or which you feel you can contribute to.

  Happy chatting,
  Isles.

Hi Isles
How does one acknowledge  ??? I read that there are shortcuts like plain text smilies  ??? ....
or should I just wave  ::)
Don't worry about the interest/contribution - I'll find that  :-X
